Monday – September 16th – Houston – Since acquiring Perigon Solutions and their leading product iPoint in December 2018, Ikon Science is working on a continuous vision to transform the iPoint solution from a wellbore data management and aggregation tool to a must-have data solution for the full subsurface.
iPoint 2019.3, released today at the SEG convention in San Antonio, will feature new support and handling of absolute time-based data like; production data, drilling data, and many more key pieces commonly measured against time.
‘’This functionality was essential to establish iPoint as a go-to solution for teams focused on drilling, production and engineering’’ commented Denis Saussus, Chief Product Officer. ‘The iPoint framework has also been upgraded to handle seismic as a new data type which will allow the development teams to rapidly expand functionality and data handling with SEG-Y reading capabilities in the short term’’.
One of the most significant development highlights of iPoint 2019.3 is further development of a newly-added decline curve analysis tool for predicting future subsurface behaviours based on historical data. While the addition of this functionality initially resulted from Ikon Science’s close collaboration with Seequent, this tool provides significant uplift to users in the oil and gas community as well. As part of the ongoing partnership, Seequent will soon be announcing the release of an iPoint-Leapfrog connector, establishing integration between iPoint and Seequent’s 3D geological modelling software, Leapfrog.
“Energy subsurface experts now have a user-friendly way to access and aggregate their data for those workflows completed with Seequent’s technology. Clarity in data used for the modelling process is crucial for decision making and this provides that to our joint customers” commented Brennan Williams, Product Director: Energy at Seequent
“The features developed in the latest release cycle are gearing us up to expand our offering for our current and future users to enable complete subsurface data aggregation. Having all subsurface data in one place truly unlocks the potential for operators looking to gain insights with traditional workflows and more modern analytics and machine learning methods,” says Monica Beech, Global Portfolio Manager - iPoint.
Further improvements to iPoint 2019.3 include significant advancements of the user-interface for improved usability along with ongoing upgrades to the back-end architecture that promotes ever-increasing flexibility, scalability, and custom configuration for bulk data handling.
