Dear OpendTect Users,

We have made a patch release for our latest stable version: OpendTect 6.6.9, which is now available for installation/update. We are proud to announce that this release is the first one fully certified by Red Hat.

Today, we show another great example of how you can quickly improve the interpretability of seismic data by applying a trained Machine Learning model.

DeSmile is one the models from Lundin- GeoLab (nowadays AkerBP) that is available in OpendTect’s growing library of trained ML models

Our latest OpendTect v6.6.8 supports STL format. This is a format used in the Computer Aided Design industry to design 3D objects. It is used in the Mining industry to show subsurface constructions such as mines. A nice feature (not shown) in OpendTect is that you can display attributes on the surface of the 3D body. For example displaying fault attributes would show where faults are intersecting the structure

We’ve held our prices pretty much constant for a considerable time now but due to spiraling inflation we will be increasing our prices by 10% in the new year.

The updated prices will allow us to maintain and improve our standards for excellence. We will keep pushing the boundaries of technology, improving OpendTect's performance and support, so that we can continue to give you the very best value for money.

In April 2022, Friso Brouwer of I^3 GEO, conducted an OpendTect webinar in which he showed how high-resolution 3D waveform segmentation can be used for quick geomorphological analysis. For a recording of this webinar, click here.

In this post, we show another application of Friso’s workflow. We use the Delft survey, which is freely available from TerraNubis, our cloud portal. Delft is one of several free projects that do not check for license keys, meaning you can run OpendTect Pro and commercial plugins on this dataset.

In the week of 26th to 30th of September we will be organising a different online training course every day. The courses will be held from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM CET. You can sign up for each course for only 100 USD per day. We have a special 50% off for academics. If you are an academic please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to receive a discount code that you can use at checkout on the registration page. Pick and choose the courses you would like to join, you need to register for each course individually. We look forward to seeing you online!

Come see us at this year's International Meeting of Applied Geoscience and Energy August 28th - September 1st, 2022 in Houston Texas Booth #1216

Kristoffer Rimaila and Nanne Hemstra will present live demos on the latest developments in OpendTect. They will also showcase version 7, which will be released later this year.

Free webinar Thursday 25 August - 4pm CET

In this webinar we will demonstrate how you can use OpendTect functionality directly in Petrel or how you can copy data across if you don't want to tie the Petrel license.

Did you know that in addition to creating great software, the dGB team also offers services in the form of software training, project management and execution as well as consultancy services. If you have a tough nut to crack, we’d love to hear from you!

This week we want to show you an example of the 4th Lundin model 'Lundin_GeoLab_SimpleDenoise". We believe this model is applicable to almost all datasets. Unlike the AJAX model, the SimpleDenoise model preserves the amplitude - frequency content. It only removes random noise.
