Oil & gas will still make up two thirds of the global energy supply.

But they will be harder to find and more challenging to develop.

To overcome these challenges, Shell is delivering integrated technology solutions.

“It's getting the most out of your existing oil and gas reservoirs

through, essentially, better seismic imaging”.

Seismic Data Acquisition:

To find what others can't, Shell pushes the envelope on state of the art seismic technologies.

These are critical to gathering high-quality insights into the earth’s subsurface.

We can really turn upside down the whole concept

of how we would acquire seismic data in the field”.

“It was a revolution in how we were able to acquire seismic data

and to be able to see and better image,

especially under what we call opaque bodies, such as salt”.

“The recent advances that have been made in seismic data acquisition

High performance computing enables Shell to analyse vast amounts of data

transforming it into accurate and valuable information.

“It's essentially creating images of the subsurface

from these huge and ever-growing seismic data volume”.

becomes a phenomenal computing problem”.

“So it's about faster turnarounds of ever larger data volumes

and improving the quality of the images”.

“We're trying to build images that allow us to drill a foot-wide hole

that basically threads a needle all the way down to that target

so we can tap for hydrocarbons.

“What high-performance computing has enabled us to do is really take a step change

in the scope of the data that we can analyse at a given time”.

“Without the high-performance computing,

we wouldn't be able to manage and handle all the data that we're getting”.

Subsurface Interpretation Workspace

Shell’s proprietary subsurface solution lets us see and understand what others can't.

“If you see something that others cannot see,

then that, of course, translates immediately into a competitive advantage”.

GeoSigns is a platform that allows people to actually just do better interpretation on...

on the seismic that we have”.

Shell has always made quite some efforts in building interpretation systems

“We want to create better images,

and they are eventually used to take better business decisions”.
