New Software Release

Omega 2018.1 Now Available

Thursday, 30 August 2018

Product details

The Omega geophysical data processing platform and associated Petrel Earth Model Building plug-in provide all the necessary tools and processes to efficiently and accurately process land, marine, transition zone, 2D, 3D, and time-lapse seismic data.

The Omega platform offers an interactive desktop, seismic processing infrastructure, sophisticated data management, and wide algorithm base to enable complex seismic data processing from a single workstation to a cluster processing environment. The Petrel Earth Model Building plug-in comprises a complete workflow for imaging and velocity modeling and harnesses the power of the Omega platform and the Petrel E&P software platform, providing an interactive environment for confident decision making.

Together, these platforms offer

  • industry-leading tomography and steering filters
  • fully integrated interpretation and processing
  • high-definition and flexible velocity model representation
  • full anisotropic modeling (vertical transverse isotropy [VTI] and tilted transverse isotropy [TTI])
  • complex geobody modeling capabilities
  • interactive localized imaging techniques.

Release details

The key features of Omega 2018.1 include

  • new seismic function module for AVO stabilization and high-resolution Radon transform
  • alternative seismic function module for surface consistent reflection statics decomposition that handles large data volumes
  • improved efficiency and processing speed for the following seismic function modules: adaptive deghosting, anomalous amplitude attenuation, and simultaneous source separation
  • improved usability and functionality for Omega Dataset Manager, Omega Stage Jobs Viewer, and Omega SeisFlow applications
  • model-based wavelet processing workflow improvements for extending capabilities such as spectral constrain, internal inverse Q filtering, and polarity convention
  • creation of geometry database files using P1/11 format
  • integration with ProSource E&P data management and delivery system.

There are approximately 1,400 revisions and updates included in this release.

The Petrel Earth Model Building plug-in suite is updated in conjunction with the release of Omega 2018.1. Updates include

  • Petrel Full-Waveform Inversion QC (FWI QC) plug-in to display shot statistics and the bounding box for shots
  • enhancements and improvements in velocity modeling.

Complementing the Petrel Earth Model Building plug-in suite are the following available plug-ins:

  • Petrel Prestack Seismic Interpretation (PSI)
  • Petrel Seismic Survey Design (SSD)
  • eXchroma chromatic geology extraction software.

Suitable for

The suite of tools, including Omega platform and Ocean Software Development Framework plug-ins plug-ins for the Petrel platform, is designed for anyone needing to handle seismic data for conditioning, processing, modeling, imaging, seismic interpretation, and inversion or AVO modeling.
