Dip Steering is a commercial plugin of OpendTect Pro for computing and using dip and azimuth volumes (Steering Cubes) from seismic data. This powerful tool enables users to:

  • Apply structurally oriented filters
  • Extract mult-trace attributes along seismic reflectors
  • Compute volume curvature attributes
  • Extract horizons individually, or as a dense set (HorizonCube) using inversion-based flattening algorithms.

Geothermie Groep Nederland (GGN), dGB Earth Sciences and two suppliers of high-performance drilling services have joined their expertise to harvest low-enthalpy geothermal energy with temperatures ranging from 60 – 90 0C using LUC installations. LUC’s enable economic development of geothermal energy for domestic heating and heating of greenhouses, also from lower-quality aquifers in smaller-scale projects. The method consists of an innovative combination of project management, best-practices in well engineering, production technology and advanced reservoir management.

OpendTect supports the most advanced fault attributes available in the market through its Faults and Fractures plugin. Thinned Fault Likelihood or TFL is designed particularly for mapping and imaging faults and fractures based on their dips and strike range. The output is a probability volume with a razor-sharp image of the faults that can be used to extract fault planes.

My colleague Hardeep Jaglan from dGB Earth Sciences will be presenting at the EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) in Madrid in the ARK CLS Limited booth #1154.

We are proud to announce that we have officially received Saudi Aramco's Third Party Cybersecurity Compliance Certificate (CCC).

A unique piece of functionality in OpendTect Pro is the Thalweg tracker.

A Thalweg tracker is a 3D amplitude tracker that grows 3D bodies along the path of least resistance. The tracker has two main applications:

  1. to detect and isolate 3D bodies of sedimentary features such as channels, lobes, splays, and reef buildups, and
  2. to create labels for supervised Machine Learning seismic facies segmentation workflows.

In this video Paul de Groot from dGB Earth Sciences explains the main differences between the free platform OpendTect and our commercial platform OpendTect Pro.
