Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Oil and gas software company Paradigm has launched an upgrade to its exploration and development software called 2011.1.
With the release, it adopts the "Maximus" technology from NVIDIA, a manufacturer of graphics processing cards for PCs.
With the new release it makes VoxelGeo, a solution for voxel volume interpretation, available on the Microsoft Windows 64 bit platform.
It also makes WAM ("Web Asset Manager"), a tool for carrying out queries on distributed data, available on the Microsoft Windows 64 bit platform.
The release also increases flexibility in the import, storage and creation of well plans.
Users can now apply Paradigm's Reverse Time Migration technology to anisotropic (TTI) models.
There are performance improvements in data loading for large GOCAD / SKUA projects.
"This significant upgrade offers our customers substantial value in carrying out their exploration and development activities," said Duane Dopkin, executive vice-president Technology.
