Paradigm 15

Paradigm 15
Paradigm 15, the high-definition platform of excellence, not only reflects our commitment to provide advanced science solutions to everyone, but also aims at expanding interconnectivity with other vendors’ platforms. Paradigm 15 is designed to help users maintain and improve profitability through enhancing efficiency while lowering risk and cost. Paradigm 15 enables customers to:

Develop most productive targets first
Re-rank and requalify prospects: Prioritize expenditure to the asset with the sweetest most profitable spot first.
Identify most productive zones: Target highest TOC, most fractured, biggest net pay areas first.
Drill fewer, better wells
Optimal well spacing in 3D: Know how many wells are too many, determine how close is too close, and set drilling priority schedule
Fracking and re-fracking optimization: Shortlist wells to which fracking is allocated first and prioritize fracking to most producible stages
Minimize non-productive time
Plan to drill safely and efficiently: Stay within zone of interest with geosteering; avoid hazards with real-time pore pressure prediction

How does Paradigm 15 help users increase workflow productivity and efficiency?

Integrated G&G Platform

Introduce on-the-fly seismic interpretation to accelerate prospect identification and development
Position your reservoir in depth with higher accuracy to reliably plan wells
Advance from seismic to simulation in hours or days, not weeks or months
Critical capabilities

Advanced Interdisciplinary Workflows

Make better development decisions with Quantitative Seismic Interpretation by embedding rock, fluid and fracture characterization in daily workflows
Increase productivity by integrating geological modeling and depth imaging workflows
Drill with confidence through multi-domain pore pressure prediction
Critical capabilities

Third-Party Data Interoperability

Efficiently exchange data, interpretations and models with third-party applications, for more effective communication and cooperation among geoscientists, data administrators, and third-party software users.
Critical capabilities

New Features

Seismic Processing and Imaging


New Feature Why It Matters
Enhancements to Echos Reverse Time Migration (RTM)
Variable density for both isotropic and TTI models in RTM
A new option to migrate poststack data
Delivers a more accurate representation of the effects of wave propagation in the subsurface
Adds flexibility in the application of RTM imaging
Orientation analysis for X and Y components in data acquisition
Analysis of S-wave splitting, finding fast and slow directions
Correction of the effects of S-wave splitting in a layer stripping manner
Enhanced multi-component data analysis, QC and processing
A new module (RNA) for shearlet-based attenuation of ambient noise in seismic data
Amplitude-preserving random noise suppression
A new module for receiver motion correction for towed cable marine acquisition
Improved stacking response for marine data


New Feature Why It Matters
Enriched velocity model updating (tomography)
Time-preserving tomography
VSP tomography
Re-depthing capability enables users to consistently tie the depth/velocity model to wells in a single run
Imposes well information/geological constraints while remaining loyal to the structure and seismic in a flexible way
An additional constraint to tomography to enhance the accuracy of produced subsurface models
Full workflow for Offset Vector Tile (OVT) gathers (prestack data)
Enables sectorization of OVT gathers, imported or created using the Paradigm Kirchhoff migration, which can then be used as input to 3D Tomography or AVAZ/VVAZ
Model-centric velocity determination using GeoDepth-SKUA integration: Velocity volumes, geological formation volumes, and dip/azimuth volumes created in SKUA can be used in Illumination, grid tomography and migrations, and RTM modeling workflows
Enables GeoDepth users to use SKUA structural and stratigraphic model building capabilities in the depth imaging workflow. Particularly important in geological regimes defined by faults, salt bodies, unconformities, etc.
Geological formation volume and dip/ azimuth can guide and control grid tomography updates for complex models.
Faults and other discontinuities are honored properly in the velocity model to avoid imaging artifacts.
Batch mode for CVS in Velocity Navigator
An effective QC tool for residual and velocity function picking

EarthStudy 360

New Feature Why It Matters
Significant improvements in run time (app. X5) enable EarthStudy 360/CRAM to be run on large datasets
Faster results while maintaining high imaging quality
Dramatic reduction in migration parameters and easier setup of runs on clusters
Enables users to run the migration independently with less help from Paradigm experts (advanced parameters are still available for expert users)
