For oil and gas industry professionals looking to interpret data and understand the big picture, they must turn to data fusion software. No single software product serves all the needs of those involved in the exploration, development, and recovery of hydrocarbon assets. The different software packages—Petrel or GoCAD for characterizing reservoir and field properties, SeisWorks, GeoFrame, or SeisEarth for seismic models, and Eclipse, Nexus, or GEM for reservoir simulation models—support the special focus of the various disciplines of the asset management team.
The Need for Data Fusion Software
Disparate types of oil and gas data provide significantly greater value when they can be integrated or fused into a single geospatial entity and collaboratively viewed, analyzed, and interpreted by members of an asset team. There’s a demonstrated need for data fusion software to integrate the data produced by these various software packages and combine them into a single coherent visualized model of a geospatial entity. Specifically, this data fusion software needs to:
- easily integrate data from a wide variety of software products used by oil and gas industry professionals—satellite images, LiDAR data, field boundaries, geologic maps, seismic data volumes, 3D structural models, reservoir simulations, well and rig locations, and well logs
- understand the various data formats used by software vendors, automatically incorporate the data, properly scale it, and accurately render data in context with other relevant data sources associated with reservoirs
- incorporate time relevant data such as seismic volume and attributes, microseismic and monitoring data, well events, real-time drilling feeds, production tests, and microseismic and monitoring data that characterize evolving asset conditions
CoViz 4D Answers the Need for Data Fusion Software
Data fusion software enormously increases the understanding of hydrocarbon assets throughout their lifecycle.
CoViz 4D, a data visualization analytics software from Dynamic Graphics, Inc., gives oil and gas professionals the data fusion capability to easily access and combine all relevant data associated with reservoir assets. Powerful visualization capabilities enable teams to explore data relationships and conduct a quantitative analysis of 4D seismic data within a multidisciplinary data fusion environment.
