A modern G&G software suite for successful and timely prospecting

The Headwave software is a high-performance geoscience solution. Unlike virtually every other commercial offering, Headwave is perfect for prospecting and de-risking using all available data from geology to geophysics to engineering. It provides next-generation capabilities in seismic data compression, real-time visualization, interpretation and even the analysis of datasets as big as 100TB and beyond.

Third Wave Geoscience Solutions

We call Headwave the “3rd wave” of geoscience software innovation because it breaks with previous generations  long entrenched in the market. Headwave brings 21st century capabilities to problems that are simultaneously compute intensive, data intensive and interactive. We provide a platform for geoscience technology development and a suite of shared functionality, making Headwave an ideal hub for connected applications and data. Headwave enables an ecosystem integrates and augments cross-discipline workflows in a collaborative, commercially supported environment.

A combination of key software innovations —including proprietary data compression and automatic GPU processing with CUDA parallelization from vanilla C++ code —enable on-the-fly calculation and responsive visualization for data sets of unlimited size, encompassing pre- and post-stack seismic attributes and diverse well data. For example, you can browse thousand-fold Offset Vector Tiles with full or restricted azimuth range with substacking on the fly anywhere in a 1600 sq. km survey—all with Headwave, all on a laptop.

Basic horizon and fault interpretation, with horizon auto-tracking on both pre-and -post-stack data, free-form shape interpretation, and logical operations for horizon editing are available now. Headwave’s stratigraphic visualization capabilities for multiple attributes on horizons, in zones phantomed around or between horizons, on free-form shapes, and in probes that need not be aligned with survey coordinates, are unmatched in the industry.

HOW WE DIFFERENTIATE

 

Unlike Everyone Else Why It Matters
Fully interactive at any scale Reduce “time to first oil” with fewer people
Unlimited data size Work at regional & basin scale. Machine learning needs all the data.
Unlimited compute complexity Required to achieve improvements in e.g. imaging, de-risking & reserve estimates
Truly open architecture Ability to add in-house & 3rd party IP, which also drives adoption
Flexible licensing model Onsite, cloud, hybrid
Collaborative development 3rd Wave will not happen in isolation

Take all data into consideration at both regional and prospect view

 

As an explorer, you recognize the tremendous impact technology has on your ability to execute overall company strategies. You also know that better technology is not just about doing the same thing only faster. It’s about doing things in a way that you always wished you could. Working with Headwave means working differently. Imagine what you could do with full, seamless interactivity—at any scale.

Deliver Results On Time With Higher Quality.

 

Geoscientists who evaluate opportunities are far too familiar with the typical constraints of traditional software. One of the biggest issues with prospecting is the integration between regional view and prospect evaluation, and the ability to move quickly from one view to the other.

Time critical activities like bid submittals require the ability to rapidly test multiple geological and geophysical models along with their associated assumptions. Traditional software constraints have forced geoscientists to work with partial data and a limited number of models. We have done something about that.

 

With Headwave, you can work seamlessly, zooming in and out of very large datasets – from regional recconnaissance to prospect evaluation and back in real time. Work through all your data in context and provide a robust regional story to support the prospect specific evaluation.

 

  • With smart use of modern technologies, you can work interactively regardless of size or complexity – even hundreds of terabytes of pre- or post-stack data.
  • Generate prospects, hunt for analogs or missed pay, using all available data.
  • Interpret and build models on-the-fly. Build many more models to quantify uncertainty — and still shorten your overall exploration cycle.
  • Combine geoscience creativity with respect to new play types with Headwave’s data-driven methods — and you are one step closer to next-generation prospect generation.

 

 

 

 

“A Gulf of Mexico survey model-update takes 13-18 hours in currently available commercial software packages. Headwave delivers a significantly more correct result in less than 5 seconds.”

- End-user's comment after evaluation the Headwave application

Innovation does matter. 

The GoM survey model-update is just one example of how companies will change how they work as they begin to rely on the industry’s only 3rd generation platform.

Innovation does matter. The GoM survey model-update is just one example of how companies will change how they are able to work as they begin to rely on the industry’s only 3rd generation platform.

 

The last downturn in the oil and gas industry made it clear that the oil price will continue to be under pressure for the foreseeable future, and that oil companies will need to invest in technology that can cut cost, improve efficiency and create value.

This is the case in exploration as well as in drilling and production; it will involve new processing and imaging for a much better understanding of the subsurface, truly modern interpretation software for interactive and effective decision making, new advanced sensor technologies for field monitoring, augmented reality for improved and safer operations and machine learning all across the workflow to complements human expertise.

In the past, only a small number of oil companies have understood the value of involving the exploration teams and technology early in the strategy and portfolio discussion.

In the future, it will be fundamental to success for all companies.

The history of exploration is full of dry holes as a direct consequence of not seeing the big picture together with the details.
