Paradigm 18

New Dimensions in Intelligence


Oil and gas E&P companies, challenged by the need to handle the massive amounts of data that are now available to them, are in need of advanced technologies to help them optimize their work. Emerson Paradigm™, the leading technological innovator in the industry, has included in the Paradigm 18 release solutions aimed at providing more accurate results in less time, and with less effort on the part of the user.  Through automation, integration, collaboration, and product optimization, Paradigm 18 enhances your work experience and provides the solutions you need in today’s rapidly-changing world. 

The Emerson Paradigm Advantage!

  • Artificial intelligence capabilities enable quick and reliable identification of geologic facies from seismic and wellbore data.
  • Unification of the user interface and data management enables faster results with less effort.
  • Support for applications running on the Cloud makes it easier than ever for remote teams to work together.
  • High resolution processing, imaging, interpretation and modeling result in more accurate earth models.
Machine Learning as a data integrator and process automation tool
  • A new unsupervised learning approach for classification of prestack seismic data or using multiple attributes, integrated with geobody detection
  • Advanced parameter sampling for sensitivity analysis of all seismic facies classification workflows, to facilitate user understanding of the impact of parameter changes on the workflows


Continued unification of UI and Data Management, from seismic processing to interpretation and modeling


Paradigm 18 supports applications running on the Cloud, to allow remote teams to work together more easily.   


High-resolution Seismic Processing and Imaging
  • Model-based ground roll modeling and attenuation based on estimation of near surface parameters
  • Radon-based data modeling in 5D data modeling and reconstruction, for improved signal representation
  • Tomography-enabled support for large datasets in conjunction with high-resolution tomographic update grids for more accurate velocity models
  • Significant reduction in memory consumption and project run times
  • Geologically-constrained velocity models with model-based tomography solutions that honor faults and multi-valued surfaces
  • Time preserving tomography workflow support for complex models to facilitate the minimization of misties between well markers and the structural model in depth (SKUA-GOCAD™ and GeoDepth™ integration).
  • A new orthorhombic workflow available for output from EarthStudy 360™ Imager enables more accurate estimation of fracture orientation and stress. 
High-resolution Seismic Interpretation
  • New interpretation workflows for interval attributes, Spectral Decomposition and Dip-steered enhancement attributes in SeisEarth™ Integrated Canvas
  • Flattening and unflattening of interpretation and seismic attribute volumes in paleospace in support of a stronger interpretation-modeling workflow
