Today Cray announced the company has joined iEnergy, the rapidly growing exploration and production industry community brokered by Halliburton Landmark. iEnergy community members can now choose to run Landmark SeisSpace Seismic Processing Software on a Cray CS400 cluster supercomputer.
By joining iEnergy, Cray can offer Landmark processing customers access to its high-performance hardware platform to help software users maximize their benefits from the SeisSpace processing system,” said Steve Angelovich, SeisSpace product manager, at Halliburton Landmark. iEnergy members have this opportunity because this online technical community enables its members to work, learn, contribute, and collaborate together. Rekha Patel, ecosystem evangelist at Halliburton Landmark, said, “We welcome Cray as a new iEnergy member and look forward to the synergy between SeisSpace and Cray’s cluster systems.”
SeisSpace ProMAX software is a comprehensive seismic processing framework that includes the entire suite of processing technologies and algorithms designed by Halliburton Landmark for use in large volume 2D or 3D marine and land seismic acquisitions. The software facilitates construction of the optimum seismic image of the most difficult geologic targets, and allows oil and gas companies to better understand their seismic data. Cray has conducted tests and found that running SeisSpace on a Cray CS400 system leads to substantial improvements in application run-time performance over other clustered infrastructures.
“The qualification of SeisSpace ProMAX on Cray’s cluster supercomputer systems gives customers an optimal infrastructure choice for running Halliburton Landmark’s seismic processing software in a production setting,” said Bert Beals, director for Cray’s Energy segment. “Cray’s expertise in performance engineering provides crucial insights into performance profiling and optimization, allowing customers who use SeisSpace for oil and gas exploration to take full advantage of next-generation seismic processing technologies.”
