Voxelvision gets Statoil investment

VoxelVision has received a cash injection from Statoil’s venture capital arm. Meanwhile, an OpenSpirit link has been announced.

Statoil’s venture capital arm, Statoil Innovation AS (SI) has taken a non-controlling equity position in VoxelVision. SI believes that VoxelVision’s leading edge cluster technology has a large potential in the oil and gas business. Cluster technology is designed to bring super computer power to the end-user.


VoxelVision CEO Ola Fjeld said “We are pleased to welcome SI as a shareholder in the company—a move which will accelerate the development of our company and of our productivity software targeted at solving real oil and gas challenges.”


Both VoxelVision applications, Terra-Studio and GigaViz, are now OpenSpirit enabled. This allows for direct access from the Client PC to Unix datastores over a LAN. 3D volumes, horizons and faults can now be imported into VoxelVision’s applications from Landmark, GeoQuest or Charisma workstations. New interpretations and data edits can also be exported back to the workstation.
