Fugro Robertson Taps Insight Earth® From TerraSpark Geosciences for 3D Seismic Interpretation

Insight Earth to Support Fugro Robertson's Geoscientific Teams With Best-in-Class Seismic Interpretation Productivity

HOUSTON, TX and BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - TerraSpark Geosciences, LLC announced today an agreement to provide three-dimensional seismic interpretation software to Fugro Robertson Ltd., a UK-based member of the Fugro companies and a recognized global leader in geosciences consulting and technical services for oil and gas exploration companies.

Fugro Robertson has secured TerraSpark's Insight Earth® seismic interpretation platform, including Insight Earth Base, Insight Earth Structure, and Insight Earth Stratigraphy. Fugro Robertson's geoscientific asset teams will use Insight Earth to streamline and improve efficiency for various North Sea interpretation workflows, with a particular focus on improving stratigraphic insight.

Particularly relevant to stratigraphy workflows, Fugro Robertson can leverage Insight Earth's Domain Transformation™ tool to remove 3D image structures to produce a unique stratal-slice volume that significantly improves productivity in several areas, including imaging of depositional systems, faster and better quality stratigraphic analysis, and identification of viable prospects more quickly.

"Insight Earth is engineered to exceed user requirements for even the most demanding and complex subsurface environments, and will provide multiple efficiency and performance upgrades to help optimize Fugro Robertson's seismic interpretation projects," said Geoffrey Dorn, PhD, CEO and president of TerraSpark. "Insight Earth will enable Fugro Robertson to get more value out of its extensive multi-client 3D library."

The agreement comes just weeks after TerraSpark announced the launch of Insight Earth 1.5, the newest and most technologically advanced version of Insight Earth, delivering significant enhancements to its core infrastructure that provide even greater workflow performance and ease of use. Insight Earth is widely recognized throughout the energy exploration and production market for its unique True Volume seismic interpretation process, wherein each step in the interpretation process informs and improves the next step.
