ffA (Foster Findlay Associates), a Scottish provider of 3D seismic analysis software and services to the oil and gas industry, has released its latest advanced 3D seismic analysis and volume interpretation software - SVI Pro and SEA 3D Pro 2010, for Windows and Linux platforms. This release synchronises the capabilities of the two applications, allowing ffA’s software users to work with the same tools on both their interpretation workstation and their mobile workstations. Support for Windows XP and Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 & 5 (64-bit) and full project compatibility between SVI Pro and SEA 3D Pro makes deployment and use of the software both flexible and straightforward.
Users will also benefit from software enhancements including addition of 'one-click' geology-driven workflows, which allow preconfigured processing workflows to be built rapidly based on interpretation goals and a number of additional workflows for noise reduction, channel and fault delineation, and improved well-log loading and visualisation capabilities. This is the first Linux release to provide rapid seismic attribute computation using GPU-accelerated volume processing with Nvidia Cuda, and it includes compatibility with Halliburton’s GeoProbe R5000 release.
