ffA Releases Latest 3D Seismic Analysis Software

ffA ("Foster Findlay Associates Ltd") has released the latest advanced 3D seismic analysis and volume interpretation applications, SVI Pro and SEA 3D Pro 2010, on Windows and Linux platforms.

This release synchronises the capabilities of the two applications allowing ffA’s software users to work with the same tools on both their interpretation workstation and their mobile workstations. Support for Windows XP and Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 & 5 (64-bit) and full project compatibility between SVI Pro and SEA 3D Pro makes deployment and use of the software both flexible and straightforward.

Users will also benefit from software enhancements including addition of "one-click" geology driven workflows allowing preconfigured processing workflows to be built rapidly based on interpretation goals and a number of additional workflows for noise reduction, channel and fault delineation and improved well log loading and visualization capabilities. This is the first Linux release to provide rapid seismic attribute computation using GPU accelerated volume processing with Nvidia CUDA and includes compatibility with Halliburton's GeoProbe R5000 release.

Agnes Campan, ffA Sales and Marketing Director said, "Our first release of the new decade gives customers the extra flexibility that they need to carry out their 3D seismic analysis work in whichever PC based environment they are using, whether it is their interpretation workstation, technical laptop or the visualisation room."

"ffA is committed to providing world leading 3D seismic analysis capabilities within applications that tightly integrate with our users' interpretation workflows and their organisation's data management practices and policies. This is an exciting time for us and during 2010 our users will see many key additions to our software."
