Jason WorkBench V6.0 now on Linux

Jason’s latest Geoscience Workbench offers improved ease of use and enhanced linkage to OpenWorks and GeoFrame.

Fugro unit Jason Geosystems has released version 6.0 of its Geoscience Workbench (JGW). JGW claims improvements in ease of use, speed and functionality of the 3D integrated Quantative (3DiQ) analysis and visualization software Eplus.

Database integration

Output visualization has been improved, algorithms refined and database access extended to Schlumberger’s GeoFrame 3.8 and Landmark’s OpenWorks R 2003.

Reduce uncertainty

The 3DiQ algorithms at the heart of JGW are claimed to ‘eliminate inconsistencies between geophysical, geological and petrophysical reservoir models’ and to reduce uncertainty in reservoir parameters such as continuity, geometry, thickness and volumes.


Jason’s Bart Vos told Oil IT Journal, “The new Workbench is the first release to include Multi-CPU (MCPU) processing power. MCPU allows for much faster batch processing, enabling the user to spend time using, instead of creating information. Our software is also tuned for Linux PCs, and is delivering staggering price-performance.”

Shell International

Earlier this year Shell International Exploration and Production selected both Jason’s 3DiQ technology and the Eplus front end for integration into its centrally managed Shell Software Suite Portfolio (SSSP). Jason was acquired by Fugro last year in a € 100 million transaction.
