Paradigm(TM) Releases Next-Generation Subsurface Imaging Solution



New Common Reflection Angle Migration provides precise, high-resolution seismic imaging

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Oct. 10 /-- Paradigm(TM) (www.pdgm.com), a leading provider of enterprise software solutions to the global oil and natural gas exploration and production (E&P) industry, has announced the release of its Common Reflection Angle Migration (CRAM), a new high-resolution subsurface imaging solution that is designed to improve the quality of information obtained from seismic data processing. The new program, part of Paradigm's GeoDepth 2D/3D velocity modeling suite, is believed to represent a significant advance in E&P detection technology.

"The Common Reflection Angle Migration was specifically designed to supplement the current set of imaging tools available to geophysicists who are frequently challenged by matching imaging algorithm and methodology to the exploration objective," said Zvi Koren, chief geophysicist and seismic imaging product manager for Paradigm. "Through its implementation and imaging integrity, this new migration is ideally suited for exploration and development programs."

"We are pleased to make this new imaging solution available to the oil and gas industry and look forward to following its impact on seismic imaging programs all over the world," added Duane Dopkin, Paradigm's senior vice president of technology. "We believe this new migration will advance the science of hydrocarbon detection."

Based on a new procedure that maps recorded surface seismic data to subsurface image points, CRAM is specifically designed to help resolve difficult subsurface illumination problems and facilitate and qualify the extraction of direct hydrocarbon indicators from seismic data. The ray-based application maintains flexibility while inheriting the desirable properties of full-waveform solutions. CRAM offers a new perspective on ray-based imaging that provides solutions to a broad range of E&P imaging objectives, including detailed velocity model determination, target-oriented high-resolution reservoir imaging and quality reservoir property extraction from complex areas.
