Saddleback Geosolutions LLC Deploys the Attribute::Workbench(TM) Delivering Host of New Seismically Derived Attributes


Saddleback Geosolutions LLC announced today that is has leveraged INT's latest version of INTViewer™: an Innovative Data Visualization Application and Development Platform for Seismic Analysis and Data QC, and its Java-based Plugin API to create its first commercial product, the Attribute::Workbench™: rapidly bringing to market new geoscience technologies while allowing Saddleback to remain focused on their core value proposition.

(PRWEB) October 30, 2012

Saddleback utilized the INTViewerTM platform to develop and deploy its Attribute::Workbench: a host of new seismically derived attributes, meta-attributes that correspond to the morphology and ontology of the basic forms of the attributes, spectral decomposition tools, seismic inversion, and other tools that are used to examine the tie between rock physics and attributes through synthetic seismograms (allowing better reservoir property), and through geostatistics (allowing for better validation at well locations).

Saddleback successfully deployed their new Attribute::Workbench in a fraction of the time it would have taken to create a new system from scratch because they were able to take advantage of the application infrastructure provided by INTViewer and focus their resources on the development of advanced algorithms and tools.

Saddleback wanted to provide geoscientists with a multi-platform based solution for solving difficult exploration and exploitation problems that could be characterized by modeling, petrophysical analyses, rock-physics and seismic studies. Thus, Saddleback needed to provide best-in-class algorithms along with new ways to integrate R&D tools, processing flows, and automation while retaining the ability for customers to customize Saddleback's tools and workflows for their diverse needs.

Saddleback knew that their unique advantage lies in the originality of their science and the quality of their results. Therefore, they did not want to spend unnecessary effort and capital re-inventing what others had done before, and searched for a fully supported, industry-accepted data visualization platform that allows rapid deployment of new ideas and workflows.

Designed for exploration geoscientists, INTViewerTM is powerful, yet easy to learn, and allows users to easily visualize complex data and attributes to discover patterns or trends. INTViewer TM presents users with sophisticated controls in an intuitive and logical manner that requires minimal user training.

Built on the Oracle® Netbeans Java Rich-client-platform (RCP,) INTViewerTM also provides a standards-based plug-in framework for adding custom utilities and proprietary R&D products via a comprehensive API for access and control of menus, data, and custom displays.

Developers can rely on leveraging INT's wide portfolio of data visualization tools, data interchange format support, and scalable plug-in architecture to allow for continuous improvement in the development and integration of data-driven solutions.

Saddleback and INT have also worked together to develop plug-ins that enable seamless use of leading third-party tools for rapid algorithm development, data analysis and numerical computation. Two examples of that collaboration are INTViewer's Seismic Workbench and MATLAB® Integration plug-ins.
