A client was challenged to locating exploration targets. New interpretation techniques had been described in technical journals and in research projects from service companies. The analysis techniques were not yet available to operating companies requiring the use of external resources to analyze the seismic attributes.
- Where are anomalies located?
- What do good target candidates look like?
- Can we differentiate areas based on XYZ attribute?
Spotfire Solution: The client implemented Spotfire Analyst and created imported text output from their internal data sources. The client was able to quickly deploy new technology using visual analysis and algorithms without requiring the use of expensive consulting services or waiting for the technology to mature to general use. This allowed for prolonged use of their competitive advantage. Specifically the client was able to pick five new drilling targets with confidence not possible from conventional analysis.
