BP showcases Foster Findlay

Foster Findlay’s Aberdeen Reality Center has brought in new clients while its image processing technology was featured in a presentation by BP to the Geological Society.

Foster Findlay Associates (FFA) has been showcasing its technology in its Aberdeen Reality Center (ARC). The ARC deploys Magic Earth’s GeoProbe volume interpretation software running on a high resolution projection wall powered by an SGI Onyx computer.


Following a pilot study earlier this year, FFA claims interest in the ARC from clients such as BP, TotalFinaElf, ChevronTexaco, Marathon, Kerr McGee, and Amerada Hess. Latterly, FFA has partnered with Norwegian visualization specialist Kidra.


FFA’s image processing technology was presented this month at a meeting of the Geological Society in London by BP’s Dave Hood. Hood described how FFA’s technology helped BP capture information in 3D seismic using image processing, visualization and interpretation tools.
