SEG 2017 in Houston




When: September 24-29, 2017

Where: Houston, Texas

Booth: #906

The SEG International Exposition and 87th Annual Meeting will provide vast amounts of cutting-edge technical insight, high-level networking and new business development opportunities across multiple disciplines of the geosciences sector. 

Acceleware will be presenting several in-booth talks about advancements in seismic imaging software for the oil and gas industry. Speak with an expert or attend one of our presentations about Acceleware’s FWI commercially ready modular platform (AxFWI), as well as our Reverse Time Migration (AxRTM) and our 3D finite difference seismic modelling application (AxWAVE) – which is available in the cloud!

Developments in Reverse Time Migration

In today’s tight budget reality, new seismic data acquisition is scarce. Now is the time to take a second look at existing data. RTM is an advanced migration method for seismic depth imaging in areas of complex geology. Acceleware’s AxRTM is highly optimized for modern high performance computing (HPC) and uses advanced techniques for better images. We present our recent developments in this talk.


Live Demo! Running a Seismic Forward Modelling Example in the Cloud

Seismic forward modelling is used to simulate seismic wave propagation through the subsurface to gain insight into subsurface structures. It is very useful for seismic acquisition design, testing geological model hypothesis, and seismic processing. Here we demonstrate its ease of use and ease of access in the cloud!


Want to Get Started with Full Waveform Inversion?

Full Waveform Inversion is gaining more and more popularity, yet it largely remains a specialist’s tool. Acceleware has developed a modular FWI platform allowing geoscientists to discover and expand its potential to deliver very detailed subsurface velocity models. We present this platform as a means to jumpstart your work in FWI with an optimized solution for modern HPC environments.
