Abstract

The world is estimated to hold about 940 billion barrels of undiscovered oil and natural gas<br>resources, much of it in remote and difficult to reach places, such as deep water, deserts, and<br>arctic environments. Oil & gas companies are looking for technologies to help increase<br>accuracy of exploration and production, while reducing risks and costs. Efficient and fast data<br>interpretation amongst teams of specialists is key. Data have to be visualized with a maximum<br>of details and be shared within a small group, a large audience or with remote colleagues.<br>Standard 19” LCD monitor can display up to 1.9M pixels at 1600 x 1200 resolution but the<br>image is too small to be shared, too small to interpret efficiently and it takes far too long to<br>zoom in and out.<br>30” LCD can display up to 2.9M pixels at a 2560 x 1600 resolution, that’s great for two or<br>three engineers working together. But looking for 15 frames per second animation, for a fluid<br>seismic interpretation or reservoir simulation display, means that the system has to handle<br>43.5 M pixels per second. Can it be done on a standard workstation? Can you even look for<br>larger display size, faster frame rate for increased efficiency, from a single system?
