BARCELONA, Spain, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Paradigm™ (, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions to the global oil and natural gas exploration and production (E&P) industry, has made public the roadmap to deliver by mid-2011 a 64 bit Windows 7 version of its full solution suite of seismic interpretation, velocity modeling, seismic characterization and well calibration capabilities, together with the Epos integration and interoperability framework. The announcement was made at the 2010 European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) Annual Conference and Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain, June 14 – 17.

This seismic-to-reservoir solution suite will offer customers a user interface and experience identical to that of the current platform for those applications.  The update will complement the existing Windows versions of Paradigm software for structural and reservoir modeling and engineering, formation evaluation, geological cross-section and correlation and drilling engineering.

"The development of a comprehensive subsurface solution suite on Windows has been requested by many of Paradigm's customers. Windows 7 provides a professional 64 bit workstation platform that allows us to deliver the high-performance interpretation capabilities, advanced graphics and robust data handling facilities that are required for modern oil & gas subsurface projects. Offering our customers a choice in their geoscience operating system is a clear demonstration of how Paradigm is attentive to its customer's business challenges," said Duane Dopkin, Executive Vice President of Technology for Paradigm. "Our long track record of delivering modeling, geological, formation evaluation and drilling solutions on Windows has allowed us to leverage in-house expertise to make this development project a reality."

"For geoscientists, locating and extracting hydrocarbons requires manipulating massive amounts of structured and unstructured data to interpret and model sub-surface characteristics," said Ali Ferling, managing director of Worldwide Oil and Gas Industries for Microsoft Corp. "Windows 7 provides exploration professionals with enhanced integration and data management capabilities to retrieve, integrate, analyze and share terabytes of information across multiple devices, applications and geographies, all in a secure computing environment."
