SOFTWARE developer Paradigm has released the latest version of its integrated solution suite, Paradigm 14, to its worldwide user base.

Developers of the package have added over 700 new features to the software, covering the entire upstream workflow – from processing and imaging to interpretation and modelling, reservoir characterisation, reservoir engineering and drilling, and data management.

The company improved its processing an imaging solutions to deliver high-definition images that enable users to see the smaller features that are important in modern reservoirs.

By doing this, the company hopes to overcome acquisition limitations in seismic surveys, enhance fracture determination from seismic data with improved full-azimuth imaging and inversion methods and use more accurate velocity determination to more precisely define geological features.

Paradigm said the new seismic interpretation offered would enable more efficient quantitative seismic interpretation workflows, so that interpreters are able to qualify amplitude prospects for hydrocarbon detection and identify sweet spots.

Company chief product officer Somesh Singh said the new release saw the company focus on enhancing the user experience with more convenient workflows and easier installation.

“We are confident that these improvements will enable our customers to obtain more value from their data, make better decisions and maximise return on their investment,” he said.
