SEG:Landmark, LMKR form alliance
Halliburton’s Landmark and Software Services and LMKR have agreed to accelerate delivery of new software and technology.
DENVER – Halliburton’s Landmark and Software Services and LMKR have agreed to accelerate delivery of new software and technology. The announcement came at the 2010 SEG annual meeting in Denver on Monday. The alliance follows a long-standing relationship between the two companies.
“Combining resources for R&D and global marketing will accelerate new technology delivery and reach new customers,” said Gene Minnich, VP, Landmark. “We already are seeing some benefits and updates from the alliance could come as frequently as quarterly.”
Landmark also is showing the SEG its new DecisionSpace unified workspace and the most recent element in the company’s “High Science Simplified” plan to make geosciences more accessible.
“DecisionSpace optimizes the workflow to bring out synergy and to bring back the asset team,” said Kenny Laughlin, manager of Geophysics at Landmark.
DecisionSpace is an open architecture that permits use of preferred applications and data across domains and vendors.
At the same time, LMKR is showcasing a new GeoGraphix geomodeling while drilling tool. Discovery smartSTRAT is a new add-on module to the GeoGraphix Discovery smartSECTION software. It geomodels while drilling for geosteering of horizontal wells. It offers horizontal well correlation and geosteering tools added to depth-converted seismic backdrops into interpretations. LMKR says this lets geoscientists “look” ahead of the drill bit to avoid hazards and to stay on target.
The results can be displayed in Discovery’s integrated 3D visualization tool and geomodel application.
LMKR also is featuring its latest geographic information system and field planning solutions. This latest release allows access and online import of GIS and ArcGIS made data into Discovery GeoAtlas where it can be visualized in 2D and 3D.
