Multi-tasking machines looking in two directions simultaneously
Being dipolar is not all bad
You’re an expert at multi-tasking. But, does it sometimes feel like the walls are closing in on you, and there’s never enough time to actually leverage and use seismic data effectively? You know there is greater value to be gained by deeply investigating and interpreting the data, but it seems the majority of your time is spent in operations (and meetings).
Do you have the bandwidth or the tools to fully assess the results of the attribute volumes the QI contractor just delivered? The days are already long, but you have a gut feeling the seismic attributes could be the key to providing a more predictive understanding of well performance as it’s related to rock properties.
It’s just too bad you don’t have enough time to test your hunch...
Do more than scratch the surface.
Demonstrate instant value from seismic attributes.
“Why is there never enough time to do it right, but there’s always enough time to do it over?” We don’t know who first uttered this statement, but it’s such a great sarcastic reminder to measure twice, cut once!
With the continued volatility in oil and gas prices, controlling costs has now become the number 1 priority for operators. In addition to (or perhaps instead of) locating new reserves, companies are trying to understand how they can optimize performance in their drilling, completions and development programs. Doing it over isn’t efficient at the best of times, but particularly so in this low-margin environment.
Seismic attribute volumes contain so much information for assessing reservoir quality to optimize drilling results, but they aren’t regularly used. Why not? Different reasons, specific to operations, but in general, the answer is because the value of seismic attributes (including their limitations) has not been understood, nor conveyed effectively.
If you think you’re dipolar already, wait until you start demonstrating new and valuable ways of incorporating seismic attributes into the mix and contributing to improved well-planning and performance.
It all starts with seismic advocates!

How to be a (dipolar) rock star.
If you’ve invested months on quantitative interpretation, and the results are now sitting on the shelf, it’s time to dust them off and get busy interpreting all those volumes. Using seismic data to drive strategic business decisions means we need to make seismic shine! It needs to deliver valuable insight back into the development program before the drilling and completion decisions are made.
QI Pro offers the most flexible, affordable and intuitive way for geophysical interpreters (even if they’re not QI experts) to leverage and interpret the attribute volumes produced by others. When you can’t afford to waste time, you can use the machine-guided assistance from QI Pro’s Attribute Advisor to give you some early indications of which properties and combinations of properties are the most meaningful to investigate.
