MEDIA ADVISORY: Emerson Showcases Advanced Software Solutions at the 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists

Virtual presentations will feature machine learning, enhanced workflow automation, new seismic imaging and tomography methods and cloud delivery for increased productivity and collaboration 

WHO: Emerson at the SEG Annual Meeting 2020
WHAT: Advanced software solutions for E&P challenges
WHERE: Virtual presentations, register here.
WHEN: Oct. 11-16, 2020

At the 90th and first-ever all-virtual Annual Meeting of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), October 11-16, Emerson will showcase integrated technology solutions comprising its Exploration & Production (E&P) software suite and services in an easy-to-navigate online program.  

Featured Presentations

Emerson will deliver joint presentations with: 

  • Repsol, “The Kaleidoscope Project - A Technology Collaboration for the Democratization of Solutions in Geophysics”
  • NVIDIA, “A Geophysical Collaboration for Imaging in the Local Angle Domain on the GPU”

The program will also highlight a presentation by Henry Posamentier, a global expert in seismic and sequence stratigraphy, “State-of-the-Art Workflows for Risk Mitigation - Stratigraphic Interpretation of 3D Seismic Data.”

Building on the company’s 30+ years of delivering high value science to the oil and gas industry, this year’s SEG program highlights presentations that can be applied to address new business challenges. The program includes:

  • Geophysics and the Digital Transformation – Elevating delivery services that keep pace with today’s digitial revolution through AI and machine learning, cloud solutions and technology collaborations 
  • Improvements in Seismic Imaging and Shallow Velocity Model Determination – Offering targeted subsurface solutions with full-azimuth diffraction, specular, and orthorhombic imaging; holographic imaging; RTM and FWI, refraction, joint reflection-refraction, and full-azimuth reflection tomography.
  • Cost Reduction and Time-To-Result Improvements with Automation and Geoscience Workflow – Achieving project improvements with workflow automation, advanced interpretation, modeling, and prospecting workflows; and geologically-constrained velocity modeling.
  • Advances in Seismic Resolution – Addressing vertical, spatial and azimuthal resolution challenges with full azimuth imaging, quantitative seismic interpretation, modified stochastic inversion, and stratigraphic interpretation methods.
  • Measuring and Optimizing Geophysical Uncertainty –  Capturing and making use of structural and velocity model uncertainty for improved seismic imaging and reservoir modeling.

Additionally, Emerson geoscientists will deliver four technical papers in a variety of sessions in the SEG Technical Program.
