About Geophysical Insights
Geophysical Insights was founded in 2010 with the vision of applying machine learning methods to seismic interpretation to reduce the risk of exploration and the cost of field development. Over three years in development, Paradise® was officially launched at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Annual Convention in 2013 and has since been adopted worldwide. The rate of adoption is accelerating as the E&P business worldwide turn to digitalization to automate workflows and increase interpretation efficiency.
Geophysical Insights continues to advance the capabilities in the Paradise AI workbench, which is proving to reveal deeper insights faster in the seismic response. Using Paradise, interpreters can extract more information from seismic and well data than would otherwise be possible from traditional interpretation tools. The company’s goal remains developing the next generation of software tools in an intuitive, elegant interface that can be used by all interpreters.
Geophysical Insights is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
