Well Seismic Fusion from Landmark

A new component of Decision Space predicts rock properties from prestack seismic data.

Landmark Graphics Corp. has just released new software for predicting reservoir rock properties from prestack seismic data, synthetic data and well data. Well Seismic Fusion (WSF) leverages the ‘rich information’ contained in prestack seismic data to build earth models and predict reservoir lithology and fluids.


Landmark worked with Statoil to develop an integrated approach to prestack interpretation that will enable asset teams to achieve cross discipline synergy and more accurately model and characterize reservoir properties away from the wellbore. Statoil program manager John Granli said, “Prestack seismic data has a dimension of information that is lost in traditional stacked seismic volumes. Integrated access to prestack seismic data is crucial to our ability to more accurately resolve and predict reservoir fluid and rock properties.”


Landmark president Andy Lane added “We are committed to working closely with customers to develop integrated solutions to exploration and production challenges. WSF delivers innovative tools that let users generate prospects more rapidly and predict reservoir properties more confidently.”


WSF leverages Landmark’s ‘next generation’ DecisionSpace platform and integrates both SeisWorks and OpenWorks. Murrac Roth, Landmark VP marketing, concluded “Prestack seismic interpretation with direct access to well information combined with the ability to model various reservoir scenarios provides geoscientists a better way to extract value from seismic data.”
