DownUnder GeoSolutions Selects Acceleware’s Reverse Time Migration to Deliver Leading Edge Seismic Depth Imaging
CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwire – Dec. 18, 2012) – Acceleware Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:AXE) today announced that DownUnder GeoSolutions, a leading geosciences company, has selected Acceleware’s Reverse Time Migration library, AxRTM™, to provide customers with leading edge seismic depth imaging services. DownUnder GeoSolutions will integrate AxRTM into its DUG Insight® geophysical software platform. The resulting state-of-the-art depth imaging solution is purpose built for the accurate mapping of complex geological subsurface structures. In addition to providing customers with reverse time migration depth imaging services, DownUnder GeoSolutions will be offering the integrated DUG Insight RTM to its software customers worldwide, under a sublicense agreement with Acceleware.
“AxRTM leads the industry in computing performance and image quality. The enhanced TTI stability mode, high quality imaging condition, advanced noise removal and new amplitude correction produce images of exceptional clarity and accuracy in areas with complex geology,” said Matthew Lamont, Managing Director of DownUnder GeoSolutions. “The unique API provides us with the flexibility to integrate the library into our existing depth imaging platform to provide our customers with the high quality images they have come to expect from us.”
“With our advanced TTI option, versatile high performance hardware support and the ability to integrate directly with the DUG Insight platform, AxRTM is a perfect fit for DownUnder GeoSolutions,” said Darren Foltinek, Seismic Imaging Product Manager at Acceleware. “This promises to be a rewarding partnership for both companies as DownUnder GeoSolutions benefits from our highly flexible platform and Acceleware broadens its experience base in new geographical regions.”
