ARK CLS and Visual Technology Services Announce PDF3D Publishing Plug-in for OpendTect Seismic Interpretation Software Suite

Share Article

By integrating PDF3D® from Visual Technology Services, ARK CLS leverages Adobe® PDF document generation for interactive 3D seismic interpretation with OpendTect plug-in.

ARK CLS, a leading provider of advanced solutions for geophysical exploration and analysis, in partnership with Visual Technology Services, announces the capability to produce 3D PDF documents greatly improving communication of complex seismic interpretations. ARK CLS is offering the OpendTect plug-in for publishing models using PDF3D®, giving the analysis application users enhanced and innovative workflow methods to collaborate among technical partners. The PDF3D plug-in to OpendTect allows volume sections, horizons, and interpretation features to be embedded within a secure technical report.

"The addition of PDF3D capability within the OpendTect Suite removes barriers that currently exist for collaborating with partners with diverse viewing capabilities," reports Adrian Bennetton, ARK CLS founder. "We are seeing a lot of interest in the PDF3D plug-in, which perfectly complements the Spectral Blueing and other seismic analysis plug-ins. Most OpendTect users will benefit from this, as the results of interpretation studies can be sent out to non-OpendTect users for review, with no extra software to install. This new capability is really taking off in the G&G community and we are very pleased with the partnership of Visual Technology Services."

Users can change viewing angles, scale factors and select visibility on geophysical layers. The PDF3D plug-in generates 3D representations of seismic analysis. As geophysicists already use Adobe Acrobat® to author technical reports, the addition of 3D content into those reports represents a major enhancement.

OpendTect is a seismic interpretation software system in an open source environment from dGB Earth Sciences. It enables processing, visualization and interpretation of multi-volume seismic data using attributes and modern visualization techniques, supporting plugins for dip-steering, attribute analysis, sequence stratigraphy, fluid migration, velocity modeling, spectral blueing, tomography and inversion.

ARK CLS provides custom programming services and products for improved interpretation of geoscience data in the upstream oil exploration sector. ARK CLS provides services and products drawing on extensive expertise with Landmark, Schlumberger, Roxar and OpendTect environments.
