Paradise: Learning Machine Technology

The Next Generation in Seismic Interpretation

Paradise is a dramatic new geoscience analysis software featuring machine learning technology for oil and gas exploration and development. The platform enables geoscientists to rapidly analyze multiple attributes and other information simultaneously, generating these sources of value:

  • Highlight changes in pore pressure related facies
  • Reveal geologic and stratigraphic features
  • Visualize thin beds and facies below seismic resolution
  • Identify thin beds below traditional seismic resolution
  • Discriminate DHIs in conventional reservoirs
  • Locate fracture trends and sweet spots in shale plays

Attribute Generator


Attribute Generator


 

Attribute
Generator

Seismic attributes provide a framework for interpreting geologic features that define depositional environments. Using the Advanced Attribute Library, interpreters can systematically generate seismic attribute volumes for multi-attribute analysis. Employ an array of instantaneous, geometric, and spectral decomposition attributes to extract more from the seismic response. 

The Advanced Attribute library is based on software developed by the world-class Attribute Assisted Seismic Processing & Interpretation (AASPI) Consortium at The University of Oklahoma. The Paradise Attribute Generator presents this powerful software in straightforward Thoughtflows™, making them available for all interpreters who use Paradise for attribute generation and analysis.

Principal Component Analysis

Principal
Component
Analysis
(PCA)

Attributes differ in their relative contribution to information in a given volume. PCA is a method of identifying those attributes that have the greatest contribution to the data and quantifying the relative contribution of each attribute. The PCA workflow in Paradise is applied on the attributes to assess their relative contribution to the SOM analysis.

 

Self-Organizing Maps


Self-Organizing Maps


 

Self-Organizing Maps (SOMs)

The SOM is a neural network based machine learning process that is applied to multiple attribute volumes simultaneously. Applied at full seismic resolution in Paradise, the SOM produces a non-linear classification of the data in a region designated by the interpreter. Regions can be delimited by time, between horizons, or above and below a given horizon in Paradise. The interpreter uses the 2D Colormap to analyze SOM results.  Each hexagonal object (neuron) in the interactive 2D Colormap represents a class of data in the region and a corresponding geologic condition. The SOM distills greater information from the seismic response by extracting more information from multiple attributes.

Interactive
2D Colormap

Paradise is the only software product in the industry with a 2D Colormap representing neuron classifications of attributes. The 2D Colormap is used interactively with the Paradise Universal Viewer to select and isolate specific neurons which have classified a set of seismic attributes according to where data is concentrated. The Paradise 2D Colormap focuses on specific anomalies, discovering geologic features, stratigraphic features, high pore pressure, or direct hydrocarbons indicators (DHI’s).

Paradise enables every interpreter to use powerful machine learning processes through straight forward, left-to-right guided workflows. Click below to learn more about how to set up and generate a PCA chart of attributes and SOM classification results, then use the unique 2D Colormap with the 3D Viewer to interpret geobodies.

Universal Viewer

The Universal Viewer presents your SOM process results through classification and probability volumes. Using the unique interactive 2D Colormap, geoscientists can selectively isolate, visualize, and analyze each individual neuron. 

Specific features and anomalies can be investigated according to classification and probability results. The interactive capability of the Universal Viewer and interactive 2D Colormap enables a faster and higher fidelity through a 360 degree view of the volume, thereby reducing exploration risk. The Universal Viewer also offers a variety of data views, 

 
 

Inlines  Crosslines  Chair cuts  Faults  Grids  Horizons • Horizon ghosting  Volume-oriented data views  Well paths

The selected data objects in the Universal Viewer windows do not need to be reselected as the interpreter navigates between Universal Viewer, 2D Viewer, and the World Map. Data is selected for viewers from a single workspace navigation tree.

Analysis

Interpreters now have a tool that quantifies the relative contribution of attributes within a geobody. Building on the unique capabilities of the Paradise 2D Colormap and SOM classification results, the 2D Colormap reveals the specific attributes comprising a selected classification result as represented by each neuron in the 2D Colormap. Use this powerful new capability to identify the attributes within an area of interest, then run a SOM across the refined area to expose geobodies having similar properties.

     Real-time interactive attribute analysis allows interpreters to idenitify the attribute contributions per neuron

Dashboards & Sesions

The dynamically updated Dashboard provides a convenient snapshot of work performed on specific portfolios, along with the corresponding SOM and PCA results, in an easy-to-view tabular form. Select an item to see the underlying details or return to a specific session to continue an analysis.

 

 
 

Workspace

Paradise is a global analysis platform that enables interpreters to declare specific Workspaces within a regional setting. Workspaces are defined by seismic data, attribute volumes, and analysis results within a polygon on a map of any shape and size. The powerful combination of the World Map and user-identified Workspaces supports collaboration among asset teams and JV partners alike. Results within defined Workspaces can be exported to other interpretation tools to share the classification results from Paradise.

Technical Specifications

Below is a list of the minimum technical hardware and software requirements for running a single instance of the Paradise client and server on a dedicated workstation. 

•  Windows 7 or Windows 10 Pro
•  MS SQL Server 2012
•  8+ processing cores
•  32GB RAM
•  4GB Nvidia graphics card
•  File storage capacity depends on several different variables: See note below*
•  10Gb ethernet connection for networked data storage or USB 3.0 connection for external storage devices

Contact us for more information regarding technical specifications on client/server installations.

*  File Storage capacity is dependent on the size of the surveys and attributes volumes, plus interpretation files, e.g., faults, horizons, wells, etc. Local storage (on the server running Paradise) is encouraged for evaluation purposes; however, if a centralized network storage facility is to be used for project files, a 10 Gb LAN connection is recommended between the target server and project file storage facility.
