GeoDRIVE, a high performance computing (HPC) software framework tailored to massive seismic applications and super-computers is presented. The paper discusses the flexibility and modularity of the application along with optimized HPC features. GeoDRIVE’s versatile design, associated to exascale computing capabilities, unlocks new classes of applications that significantly improve geoscientists’ abilities to understand, locate and characterize challenging targets in complex settings. As a result, uncertainties in subsurface models are reduced both quantitatively and qualitatively, along with reduced drilling risks and improved prospect generation.
