The VSProwess Software

Originally conceived as an in-field QC system, VSProwess was first introduced to the world at the Paris EAEG in 1992. The software has since been routinely used in most of the world's oilfields. Hundreds of users have processed many thousands of VSP surveys using the software.

Clean design

Seismic data processing is a challenging task. VSProwess has a deserved reputation of being an easy to use system. The clean and efficient design frees our team of VSP processors to concentrate on geophysics. Modular design enables new capability to be rapidly added to the software when required.

Re-designed and re-written

Our current software, the result of the 5-year "eX" project, represents a complete re-design and re-implementation of the legacy product. Vastly improved throughput supports even the largest 3D DAS datasets.  The advanced 3D data handling and integrated modeling tools enable our staff geophysicists to deliver the very best results to our clients.

The History

VSProwess was conceived as an easy to use, flow chart driven processing system. 

1989 Rigpro in-field processing

1991 VSProwess on UNIX work stations.

1992 VSProwess flow chart approach demonstrated at Paris EAGE exhibition.

1994 VSProwess converted to Windows NT.

2009 VSProwess Ltd formed and first 3D 3C VSP processed by VSProwess.

2010 We conceive and plan an advanced product (project eX).

2012 Final release 2.05 of the legacy package. All development resources move to project eX.

2015 First release of the new software to our internal geophysicists.

2016 Full version released to qualified customers only.

2017 Lite version released to 2.05 users with current maintenance and support.

 

FAQs

Why are there Full and Lite versions?

The full version is a powerful and consequently rather expensive model-driven product suitable only for professional VSP processors. Users of the full version will generally require extensive training and significant open-ended technical support. The full version is therefore made available only to suitably experienced processing professionals. The Lite version has an identical user interface but provides only a selected subset of the processing tools sufficient for in-field quality control and basic processing. Lite replaces our legacy 2.05 version.

As a full user can I open a job created by Lite?

Yes but the converse is not necessarily true. Lite users may open a job created by a full user if that job contains only modules that are part of the Lite subset.

Can I open a 2.05 job?

Unfortunately no. There are simply too many changes for this to be possible.

Can I continue to run 2.05?

Yes, not a problem because 2.05 has a completely different folder structure.

Is there a LINUX version?

Although the initial versions were written for UNIX workstations the software is currently available only for Windows.

What versions of Windows are supported?

The software is optimised for Windows 10 but also continues to run under Windows 7.

What programming language do you use?

The software is written exclusively using C++17.
