The industry standard for seismic processing and data analysis
The industry standard for seismic processing and data analysis.


The industry’s leading system for seismic processing.

For over 25 years, Paradigm® Echos® has been the oil and gas E&P industry’s leading system for seismic processing. Its popularity is based on its breadth of geophysical applications, its unique combination of production and interactive seismic data processing, its maturity and stability, and its versatile programming environment for client-guided customization.

Through its modular design, open architecture, and adherence to standards, Echos is both flexible in configuration and customizable for performance optimization.

Echos is an integral part of these Paradigm solutions:

Innovation in seismic data analysis

Echos provides an innovative link between seismic data and processing parameters and sequences, with interactive data comparison windows that allow users to quickly see the impact of new processes, parameters and workflows on their seismic data. This streamlines the link between parameter analysis and production data processing.

Relative Permeability

Echos features:

  • Seismic data analysis applications for interactive velocity analysis and QC, interactive geometry definition and QC, interactive first break picking and QC, interactive seismic trace editing, and seismic modeling.
  • A comprehensive library of seismic processing applications, with close to 400 modules for geometry definition, near surface statics, deconvolution, wavelet shaping, demultiple, deghosting, trace regularization and interpolation, migration, noise suppression and signal enhancement.
  • Enhanced velocity field generation with the GeoDepth® Velocity Navigator add-on module.
  • Improved subsurface images with the GeoDepth Kirchhoff 3D pre-stack time migration add-on module
  • Accurate depth imaging with Reverse Time Migration (RTM).
  • Time-frequency seismic attributes for thin bed analysis, feature detection, attenuation, and dual-porosity determination
  • A full suite of seismic processing modules to transform converted wave recordings to interpretable images of the subsurface.
  • A shared Epos® survey CDP grid, for accelerated workflows and data sharing between Echos and GeoDepth
  • High-performance 5D interpolation with the Orthogonal Matching Pursuit method as default
  • 3D Parabolic Radon filtering module for multiple attenuation and signal-to-noise ratio improvement
