SEG SEAM’s life-of field model. Aptomar spill detection, Force open projects.

SEAM, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Advanced Modeling Corporation is looking for partners in a new Life-of-field project spanning geology, engineering and geophysics. The project is to develop an ‘industrial scale’ synthetic 4D data set for researchers. The 3 year project is set to kick off early in 2015 with a life-of-project price tag of $210,000 per member.

Eni Norge, Statoil, Gdf Suez E&P Norge, OMV Norge and the Norwegian Coastal Administration have teamed with Aptomar to develop technology and a communication infrastructure for offshore oil spill detection and management. The ‘multi-million kroner’ project will allow Aptomar to develop its ‘Securus’ system and facilitates integration of multiple surveillance sources into Aptomar’s tactical collaboration and management system (TCMS). The JIP is expected to end this year.

Norway’s Force technology accelerator has announced the following ‘open’ projects: Safari 3 (virtual outcrop geology), GPlates (improving exploration with plate tectonics) and RM3D (geologically focused reservoir modelling).
