For decades, technology has been a driving force in the industry. With the steady decline in oil prices since 2014, most oil and gas companies shifted their focus from growth to preserving cash flow. With the sustained financial pressure, making innovation a strategic business priority can bring substantial competitive advantage. 

 

Software applications that cannot capitalize on modern computer science are obstructing progress and constraining E&P leaders who want to develop new ideas and approaches.

PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE OF UPSTREAM OIL AND GAS

Most legacy geoscience applications have been written to serve a particular end-user need—and APIs are generally an afterthought.

In stark contrast, when we developed Headwave3 we chose to develop the underlying architecture and APIs first.

Headwave is the only platform on the market that is fully capable of leveraging modern technologies, ensuring a future-proof solution for oil and gas companies.

Bluware has a long history of long-term strategic partnerships with oil and gas companies. Want to discuss how your technology priorities for the next years and our platform fit in the digital renaissance with Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and more?

OPEN & SCALABLE

The Headwave object model can be extended to support solutions across all E&P disciplines. The underlying visualization capabilities already support the majority of geoscience needs, including geological models, structured and unstructured reservoir models.

But where Headwave really outshines the competition is the intersection of big data, compute complexity and interactivity.

  • Imaging workflows
  • Multi-dimensional interpretation
  • Large data analytics
  • Any workflow that requires large amounts of E&P data, demanding computations and interactivity.

We solve the hard computer science problems and provide digital innovation so that our clients can focus on their domain and build competitive advantage through geoscience & engineering.

 

Our technology promotes better decision making and smarter allocation of capital

Third generation geoscience software can help you shorten time to first oil, better understand uncertainties (before drilling) and operate with fewer people.

It is estimated that over 440,000 oil jobs worldwide have been lost since the beginning of the downturn. The industry is also facing a generation shift in the workforce with a large number of senior geoscientists retiring and a new generation professionals entering the industry. It is likely that the new generation of geoscientists will favor other products and technologies than the older legacy products.

The future of the industry hinges on modern technology.

HEADWAVE OFFERS MAJOR BENEFITS FOR E&P COMPANIES OF ALL SIZES AND LOCALES

 

Headwave is entirely modular for rapid development and ease of deployment. The platform is end-to-end GPU accelerated, providing excellent performance and interactivity. It is also prepared for multi-user, real-time collaboration and mobility. 

 

SMBs

For small and medium-sized companies, the platform’s greatest benefits are its ease of use, the fact that it allows for early take-up of innovative approaches, and the easy creation of valuable workflows (modules).

 

Majors

For international and national oil companies, the open platform adds a great deal of value by allowing rapid turn-around from idea to a marketable product. It allows for joint R&D collaboration and easy integration, it supports innovation by being highly flexible, and the oil companies can customize however they want (“secret sauce”). Partners and clients can build what Headwave can build.
