Integrated data display including microseismic

Paradigm 14

Advanced Science for Everyone.

Paradigm 14 Brochure

With hundreds of new features and enhancements, the Paradigm® 14 Release provides integrated solutions that enhance multi-team collaboration on shared projects.  This release constitutes another significant step in our mission to deliver Advanced Science for Everyone in the fields of exploration, development and production.

The focus of this release is the science and technology that enable effective seismic data processing and imaging, velocity modeling, and seismic interpretation.

Paradigm Processing & Imaging solutions deliver high-definition images

How does that help me?
It allows you to visualize smaller features important for exploiting modern reservoirs – fractures, thin beds and small faults.

How does it reduce exploration risk?

  • It delivers a clearer understanding of the subsurface.
  • It increases the value of your investment in both legacy and modern seismic surveys.
  • It uses all available data in a geophysically meaningful way.
  • It lets you verify results from your service partners.
Critical capabilities
  • Overcome acquisition and signal to noise deficiencies in seismic surveys with systematic 5D regularization of the data
  • Broaden the spectrum of useful seismic frequencies with deghosting operators for towed streamer data and ocean bottom seismic data
  • Reduce velocity model uncertainty with full-azimuth imaging and tomography, and improve velocity model updates with interactive tomography QC
  • Image complex wave phenomena with Reverse Time Migration and full-azimuth imaging in the local angle domain
Where can I find it?
Echos®, GeoDepth®, EarthStudy 360®


Paradigm Interpretation solutions facilitate QSI workflows

How does that help me?

It enables you to predict reservoir and interval properties earlier in the G&G cycle.

How does it reduce exploration risk?

  • It improves interpretation efficiency and time to identifying and upgrading prospects.
  • It delivers faster identification of reservoir characteristics with limited well control.
  • It expands depth imaging workflows with easy redepthing methods and synthetics creation.
  • It encourages the use of advanced voxelization and seismic facies classification methods to understand reservoir extent and distribution.
Critical capabilties
  • Define rock properties using seismic inversion, seismic facies classification and on-the-fly attribute calculation
  • Identify fluids within the reservoir with AVA inversion and QC of pre-stack data
  • Predict stress and fracture intensity for well planning using full-azimuth fracture orientation and intensity analysis

SeisEarth®, VoxelGeo®, Stratimagic®

Paradigm Modeling solutions delineate with high fidelity the most relevant geological features of the subsurface

How does that help me?

Higher-definition reservoir modeling improves the accuracy of production forecasts with geologic models that are closer to reality. This results in lower-risk reservoir management decisions.

How does it reduce exploration risk?

  • It ensures geologically coherent seismic interpretation.
  • It enhances geological accuracy.
  • It helps overcome uncertainty and improve forecasting.
Critical capabilties
  • Use SKUA Volumetric Interpretation for a full 3D interpretation of all faults and stratigraphic horizons in the entire seismic volume
  • Extract stratigraphic features from seismic data that were undetectable until now, using 3D paleo-flattening
  • Use SKUA to quantify the impact of fault position and structural uncertainty on in-place hydrocarbon estimates and production forecasts
  • Understand the structural fabric of shale resource plays with stimulated rock volume analysis and stimulated path generation
