TerraSpark Geosciences Launches Seismic Interpretation Toolkits

Shale Resource Play, Complex Structure and Salt Velocity Modeling Toolkits Now Available; Specifically Designed to Solve the Most Pressing E&P Seismic Interpretation Problems

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - (SEG ANNUAL MEETING) TerraSpark® Geosciences LLC today announced the launch of its first series of highly-anticipated seismic interpretation toolkits. The toolkits were unveiled on the first day of the SEG Annual Meeting in San Antonio. TerraSpark (Booth 3208) is featuring scheduled product demonstrations of each toolkit during the conference.

These toolkits are specifically designed to enable interpreters and explorationists to solve today's most demanding and resource-intensive seismic interpretation problems. Each toolkit can be modified to accomplish any interpretation task, taking advantage of any or all capabilities of TerraSpark's flagship software platform, Insight Earth®.

"For decades, seismic interpreters have struggled to find newer, better ways to engage the most pressing geophysical and geological interpretation problems," notes TerraSpark CEO Geoffrey Dorn. "These toolkits represent a new trend in 3D seismic interpretation, one that lies with developing well targeted, specifically-designed interpretation platforms that address these uniquely difficult exploration challenges, with the end result being better interpretation outputs, more effective workflows, and superior business decision making."

The toolkits include the following:
Shale Resource Play Toolkit™
Complex Structure Toolkit™
Salt Velocity Modeling Toolkit™

Shale Resource Play Toolkit
The Shale Resource Play Toolkit helps users locate areas of enhanced fracture density and optimize the well path for maximum production. By mapping micro-seismic data together with seismic and well data, the toolkit helps to identify facies-change boundaries and reduce drilling risk.

Complex Structure Toolkit
TerraSpark's Complex Structure Toolkit helps users overcome inaccurate and incomplete fault interpretation, especially in complex, highly faulted regions. The toolkit helps to identify and accurately interpret complicated structural environments and ultimately avoid dry holes, missed opportunities and diminished revenue.

Salt Velocity Modeling Toolkit
The Salt Velocity Modeling Toolkit helps interpreters quickly create a closed three-dimensional (3D) geobody, even in the most poorly imaged areas. Users can also create a mask volume without having to export to a separate velocity modeling package, reducing interpretation and model building time.

The toolkits are powered by TerraSpark's Insight Earth proprietary tools and technologies, including Domain Transformation™, Automated Fault Extraction™ and Surface Wrapping™. To learn more, visit
