EAGE 2015 - Madrid, Spain
Exhibiting at EAGE 2015 in Madrid
The annual European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers conference and exhibition took place in beautiful Madrid, Spain from June 1-4. In its’ 77th year, over 6,500 delegates attended this show, and Acceleware was there to take it all in.
This year, the Acceleware booth had conducted dynamic talks on our latest developments focusing on 3 of our products; AxFWI, AxWave, and AxRTM.
An Innovative Full-Waveform Inversion Platform: Enabling Fast and Flexible Research
Full Waveform Inversion (FWI) is a technology which is moving into the mainstream. In this presentation, we demonstrated how to invert seismic data to derive high resolution earth models by following an example inversion. An overview of AxFWI™, Acceleware’s customizable FWI modular platform was shared.
Faster 3D Survey Design & Forward Modeling - GPU enabled
AxWave™ is Acceleware’s high fidelity finite difference full wavefield modeling application. Engineered to run on CPUs, GPUs and Xeon Phi, AxWave offers unparalleled speed and efficiency for 2D and 3D isotropic variable density modeling and pseudo acoustic modeling for VTI and TTI media. In this presentation we provided a tour of the features and interface.
Latest Advances in AxRTM for Higher Accuracy
AxRTM™ is Acceleware’s high performance Reverse Time Migration application. This presentation highlighted both new and existing features that make AxRTM a compelling choice: enhanced amplitude correctness, adaptive removal of low-frequency noise, and advanced grid features to reduce runtime while preserving image quality. Uniquely supporting multicore CPUs, NVIDIA GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors AxRTM is the most efficient RTM application on the market.
Along with these presentations, Dr. Yilong Qin presented the poster “A True-Amplitude Layer Stripping Common Shot Acoustic RTM”, which focuses on: In the exploration of areas with complex salt bodies, such as the Gulf of Mexico, RTM is often run iteratively for testing different scenarios of the base of salt and scanning different sub-salt velocity models. However, RTM is still an expensive tool, especially for large 3D Tilted Transverse Isotropic (TTI) media. To speed up the iteration of RTM when the upper part of the velocity model is kept invariant an amplitude-preserved layer-stripping RTM was proposed. Reduced computational cost and memory requirements are the results of this implementation.
