Geoscience Interpretation Softwares

1. Schlumberger Software: Seismic Interpretation Software package in both Windows and Unix Platform. Interpreting seismic data & controlled source electromagnetic to microseismic and routinely integrate advanced analyses like inversion, AVO, and structural reconstruction.
A. GeoFrame Geophysics: Unix Platform
Charisma; CPS-3; Framework 3D; GeoViz; IESX Seismic Interpretation; InDepth;LPM; Seismic Attribute ToolKit; SEA 3D for GeoViz; SeisClass; Synthetics; WriteOn 
B. Petrel  - The best software for Geomodelling so far in the industry.  
While Petrel Seismic Interpretation is also good, includes Volume Rendering & Geobody Extraction; Petrel Seismic Attribute Analysis; Petrel Domain Conversion; Petrel Seismic Sampling; Petrel Synthetic Seismograms; Petrel Automated Structural Interpretation  

2.  Landmark Seismic Interpretation software; Unix based platform; Module: R5000 DecisionSpace® environment. OpenWorks®, SeisWorks®, Z-Map; DepthTeam Express; GeoProbe®, and AssetPlanner® applications.    

If you want a very large database support like controlling data of the whole western India then Landmark is the one which you are looking for. Again its always very complicated to use and usually follows very logical algorithm

Decision Space: Windows based version of LandmarkWith Landmark’s multi-user workspace and innovative seismic interpretation tools, your team can contribute to a common sealed 3D structural framework while they interpret, then create presentation-quality maps – in minutes

Accelerate traditional workflows
Traditional horizon and fault interpretation can be tedious and time-consuming. DecisionSpace® Geophysics​ software's does automated or semi-automated waveform tracking for you. Interactive map, section and cube displays accelerate fault picking and QC. And proven high-performance 3D Probe technology enables rapid animation and validation of ideas.

Leverage innovative new tools
Use the Vertical Images tool to display published cross sections and other images along any line of section with seismic data. Use the Geoshaper™ freehand drawing tool to interpret where there is no data, fill in lithology, and map out plays. With GIS integration, geo-reference images and view ESRI shape files in seismic context. Integrate prestack seismic into reservoir characterization workflows in the same workspace.

Build structural frameworks dynamically
Building a structural framework typically requires manually digitizing fault polygons and other time consuming tasks. Landmark's advanced topology engine and Dynamic Frameworks to Fill® workflow lets each team member contribute directly to a dynamic structural framework with properly sealed faults, unconformities, and horizons, as they interpret. As new data is added, updates cascade through the entire model.

Revolutionize mapping
Geophysicists spend as much as 80% of their time making maps. DecisionSpace® Geophysics software revolutionizes mapping workflows. It slashes interpretation cycle time by an order of magnitude while improving both accuracy and consistency. With the Dynamic Frameworks to Fill technology, structural and property mapping is only a button-click away from interpretation.

Integrate beyond seismic

Built on the OpenWorks® database, DecisionSpace software easily integrates data types and expands workflows across traditional domains. Interact with classic Landmark tools, enhancing your workflows with the power of GeoProbe® software, for example. Applications share seismic data in memory, interacting dynamically via undocked windows, cursor tracking, and drag and drop.​

3. Hampson-Russell  suite; It encompasses all aspects of seismic exploration and reservoir characterization, from AVO analysis and inversion to 4D and multicomponent interpretation.

Modules: eLOG, AVO Modeling, Reconnaissance and Uncertainity Analysis; Strata-Inversion(PostSTK- Model based, Sparse Spike, Colored, Recursive; PreSTK-Simultaneous, Elastic, Independent&Lamda mu rho); Emerge-Multi Attribute Analysis; ISMap-The Best Geostatistical Application in the industry
Patent in Inversion(PreStack/Post Stack) and AVO analysis/Inversion. Also its Geostatistical application is awesome.

4. Kingdom by IHS -  Probably the best seismic interpretation software in the industry in terms of technical ability, database, flexibility and friendly nature. Kingdom now uses SQL express which has has database size of 10 gb and SQL server has infinity database size. Webmap service is the best service among any geophysical software. 

Integrated Seismic & Well Data Interpretation;  It runs on Windows platform almost on all the version.  

Kingdom Interpretation Suite :Kingdom Advance(2d\3d)PAK; EarthPAK; VuPAK; 2D Modeling-ModPAK; Geomodeling - Synthetics - SynPAK; Velocity Modeling - VelPAK Analysis; Attributes - RSA; Gathers-AVOPAK; Inversion-Colored Inversion; Data Transfer Connectors- Tunnel L(to connect through OpenSpirit); Data Management(Data Management & QC after importing data from different formats to kingdom)

Just been used by one of the PSU in India. But havn't a good review. Hope Russians make something ever which is easy to understand



  1. our company are going to buy Kingdom Interpretation Suite, now. But i don't know many manufacturer/suppliers. someone can show me trustworthy Manufacturer or suppliers ? how thankful i am when helping me!

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Kingdom is much better in windows platform. But the sales contact depends on which country you are buying the software. I do have contacts in India and middle east. Let me know if you need any contacts either in India or in Dubai. But if you visit IHS website and their regional sales shall contact you.............

  4. Great survey, I'm sure you're getting a great response. Chinese translation

  5. I think this is an informative post and it is very useful and knowledgeable. therefore, I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this article. website
