dGB Earth Sciences


With over 30 years of experience in Machine Learning, dGB Earth Sciences continues to innovate in the field of seismic reservoir characterization.

Today, we take a trip down memory lane to showcase our journey and highlight our latest breakthroughs.

In seismic sequence stratigraphic studies, we analyze seismic reflection patterns in the context of a chronostratigraphic framework. In OpendTect, such frameworks are defined by a HorizonCube, which consists of a dense set of horizons representing Relative Geologic Time. The SSIS (Sequence Stratigraphic Interpretation System) plugin is an add-on that uses HorizonCube input to decompose depositional systems over geologic time.

Next to developing OpendTect we also offer advanced seismic interpretation services. Our experts have worked on data sets from around the globe. We have extensive experience in hydrocarbon exploration, field development, time-lapse monitoring, unconventional plays and geothermal studies.

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.

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.

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

dGB Earth Sciences and Panterra have started a petition
to support the creation of a Digital Well Database
for all publicly-released well data in The Netherlands.

dGB is proud to announce the release of the Chimney Atlas website.
