Paradigm 22

Leading Science | Deeper Insights

Paradigm 22 offers new and enhanced functionalities that improve usability, productivity, automation, performance and collaboration in all E&P software domains, from seismic processing and imaging to reservoir modeling. The result is more efficient workflows, accurate results that reduce uncertainty, and cost savings across our customers’ entire organization.

This release marks an additional step towards full workflow integration. With classification and volume visualization workflows now available in Integrated Canvas, our users enjoy a comprehensive, one-stop shop for all their interpretation work.  

Expanded automation and customization in our modeling applications further enhance product performance and usability, and accelerate time to results for both exploration and production.  

This release continues our expansion into the energy transition market, through new technologies specifically aimed at the geothermal energy and carbon capture and storage market segments.

With a long history of working in a multi-vendor environment, we constantly update our connectivity capabilities so that our users can benefit from the latest versions of other providers’ solutions. This release also strengthens our cloud hosted solutions by supporting cloud-native object storage for seismic data, for more performant and cost-effective file storage.

Paradigm 22 runs on the latest operating systems and third-party libraries, and incorporates the industry’s most demanding security standards.
