Seismic borehole data interpretation

Seismic and borehole data interpretation is carried out by means of applying Paradigm® software packages:

  • SeisEarth KV - seismic data interpretation
  • Geolog - petro-physical analysis and geological interpretation of well log data 
  • Stratimagic - seismic stratigraphic interpretation and seismic facial analysis 
  • Vanguard Geophysicist - acoustic and elastic inversion.


  • construction of correlation schemes and cross sections,
  • correlation in the layers,
  • multi-dimensional statistical analysis of petro-physical parameters,
  • correlations between reservoir properties (porosity and permeability) and physical parameters,
  • petro-physical modeling of the deposit, 
  • bore-hole sectional layering, 
  • identification of fundamental lithological types and reservoirs, 
  • determination of volume components,
  • point-wise interpretation of the cross section specifying saturation and basic reservoir parameters,
  • database provisioning for seismic facies analysis and seismic inversion.
