Oil and Gas

The exploration and production marketplace is faced with demands for ever-higher resolution, faster turnaround cycles, larger datasets and greater complexity to meet the needs of internal and external customers. The upward pressure on global demand for oil, coupled with declining conventional reserves has E&P companies turning to increasingly complex computing to maximize oil assets and recovery, through reservoir simulation, and minimize exploration risk, through improved high resolution seismic imaging.

Acceleware’s combination of high performance software products, professional services and training allow you to get exactly the solution that is right for you. Please contact us to find out more about licensing our software and technology.

Acceleware Architecture

Acceleware Seismic Products Layer Model

Acceleware is leading the market in providing acceleration solutions for seismic data processing and reservoir simulation. By combining our core knowledge in parallelization and optimization of complex algorithms with an in-house team of oil and gas domain experts, Acceleware provides software solutions for seismic data processing and reservoir simulation, which access the massively parallel capabilities of compute GPUs and today's multi-core CPUs. Acceleware's seismic processing solutions provide multi-fold performance increases to reduce lengthy processing times and deliver faster business decisions for the seismic industry. By harnessing the parallel processing power of GPU accelerators and multi-core CPUs to dramatically increase the computation power of data centers, seismic jobs are processed faster and with a reduced total cost of IT ownership.
