CGG GeoSoftware has enhanced its advanced geoscience software portfolio by acquiring the rights to the VelPro velocity modelling and depth conversion product from In-Depth Solutions LLC. VelPro offers a faster and more complete velocity model building workflow to achieve more accurate seismic reservoir characterization.

VelPro’s ease of use, flexibility and scalability help interpreters and depth conversion experts build high-quality velocity models in record time. Interactive data QC and editing tools for seismic velocities and well data are included in the robust toolset.

VelPro can be used as a standalone or added on to a user’s favourite geophysical interpretation application. VelPro models can be used for time-depth conversions to create accurate depth representations of the sub-surface.

CGG GeoSoftware’s senior vice president Kamal al-Yahya said: “VelPro helps interpreters solve complex velocity modelling challenges. The technology is an ideal fit with CGG GeoSoftware’s Seismic to Simulation workflow and will accelerate model building and seismic reservoir characterization projects to help E&P company asset teams better understand their reservoirs and optimize E&P results.”

GeoSoftware is a full-service provider of advanced geoscience software including the Hampson-Russell, Jason and Insight Earth brands within CGG’s Geology, Geophysics & Reservoir division. They provide a comprehensive set of tools and support for multi-disciplinary teamwork including well log analysis, seismic reservoir characterization, petrophysics, structural & seismic interpretation, velocity modelling, time-to-depth conversion, and reservoir modelling.
