SEA 3D Pro 2009.1

ffA (Foster Findlay Associates), a leading provider of 3D seismic analysis software and services to the oil and gas industry, has released SEA 3D Pro 2009.1, the latest version of its desktop 3D seismic analysis and volume interpretation software on the Linux platform.

The new version offers Linux users an extended range of interactive analysis capabilities including the recently released GPU enabled interactive seismic facies classification module, as well as extensions to the company’s frequency decomposition, multi-attribute colour and opacity blending and iso-proportional slicing functionality.

In addition to these 3D image analysis capabilities, SEA 3D Pro also incorporates an interactive link with Landmark’s GeoProbe 3D volume interpretation software, providing GeoProbe users with a powerful range of stratigraphic and structural analysis workflows, directly integrated within their current 3D interpretation platform.
