Landmark Introduces New Visualization & Interpretation Solution


Landmark, a brand of the Halliburton Digital and Consulting Solutions division, is introducing a new high-performance team-room visualization and interpretation solution at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) trade show in New Orleans. This new solution features Landmark's GeoProbe software, the Verari Systems E&P 7500 visualization server and high-end NVIDIA Quadro graphics. It is specifically designed to help upstream oil and gas companies affordably manage large regional data sets, utilize advanced multi-attribute visualization and enable rapid, basin-scale decision making.

Landmark's GeoProbe software, optimized for the DecisionSpace environment, is the industry's most powerful visualization and interpretation solution. The new E&P 7500 server, with up to eight powerful AMD Opteron processors, 128 gigabytes of memory and high-end NVIDIA Quadro graphics, is the only visualization server technology that takes full advantage of GeoProbe software's advanced functionality and that is approved for the entire Landmark suite.

With this solution, entire regional data sets can be investigated in detail, highlighting large-scale trends. These trends are easily missed when having to view identical data broken into multiple smaller-sized subsets.

In order to help customers experience first hand the price-performance value of this solution, Landmark will be showcasing a fully configured E&P 7500 server with optional NVIDIA Quadro Plex 1000 visual computing system in its SEG booth No. 1326. As part of the Landmark theater presentations, Chris Loader, Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) geophysical advisor, and David M Roberts, 3-DMR consultant in visualization, seismic interpretation and development geoscience, will use this solution and the PGS Southern North Sea (SNS) 3-D MegaSurvey to dramatically visualize and interpret 45,000-square kilometers of 3-D seismic data formed from the combination of the seismic data from more than 100 different 3-D surveys.

"The E&P 7500 server and NVIDIA Quadro Plex 1000 systems are valuable additions to Landmark's portfolio of E&P-optimized computing and infrastructure solutions," said Douglas Meikle, vice president, Landmark and Project Management. "With a price of less than $100,000 USD, a fully configured E&P 7500 is a natural and extremely cost-effective upgrade solution for those customers looking to replace their proprietary Unix-based solutions and to power multidisciplinary team-room environments."

"The development of the Verari Systems E&P 7500 server and our latest relationship with Landmark create a powerful and cost-effective solution for oil and gas companies that are managing and operating digital oil fields," said David B. Wright, CEO, Verari Systems. "We are excited to bring to market the world's most scalable, industry-standards-based visualization solutions specifically designed to support the compute-intensive oil and gas industry and to meet its demanding needs."
