The Future of Work . . .

The Future of Work brings a need for massively improved collaboration, often between areas of your organisation that previously operated in isolation. That, in turn, crucially requires intelligent and timely exploitation of data. But it’s easy to get swamped by the great flood of information now available. With Infopresence, data […]

NEW RokDoc Advanced WellTie from Ikon Science – better ties give you better wavelet definition, and ultimately better rock properties from seismic

Seismic-well ties form the basis of seismic interpretation and also allow a quantitative analysis of the seismic phase, frequency and other attributes. Good well-ties are essential for quantitative seismic workflows such as inversion and reservoir characterisation. Wavelet estimation is performed using the frequency domain least squares method (White, 1980) using […]

Want to get more value out of your reservoirs? Award winning RokDoc Ji-Fi is the answer

Ikon Science has developed a new facies based inversion technology, which by design provides insights into reservoir structure and internal architecture. RokDoc Ji-Fi (Joint Impedance Facies Inversion) is a Bayesian simultaneous inversion that generates high fidelity facies and impedance volumes from seismic.   In a reservoir development setting, the prediction […]
