Seismic Data Management Software

Troika develops a range of software modules to improve efficiency over the life cycle of your seismic data.

Software Packages

Our software can be purchased either individually or as part of one of our suites, the package can be tailored to cover all your seismic data management requirements in the most cost-effective manner. We offer the software as a perpetual licence or leased, with the addition of our support and maintenance pack the software will benefit from all future upgrades and on hand support when required.

Single Module

Our software can be bought or leased individually as a stand-alone module or modules to cover a specific set of requirements.

Available modules:

Geom – Fast 3D Dataset Geometry Analysis
Magma – Seismic Data Recovery
Marlin – Seismic Data Trawler
Midi – Seismic Data Copy, Select, and QC
Minima – QC and Rationalise SEG-Y and Navigation Data
Maxim – Rode and Superfile Manipulation Package

Data Management Suite

Our Data Management Suite has been carefully compiled to provide the capability to discover, analyse, prepare, and condition your datasets.

DMS contains the following software:

Marlin – Seismic Data Trawler
Midi – Seismic Data Copy, Select, and QC
Minima – QC and Rationalise SEG-Y and Navigation Data

Data Management Suite Plus

Our Data Management Suite Plus contains the DMS and allows any of the other modules to be added to create a tailored package to fulfil all your seismic data management needs.

The following modules can be added into the DMS Plus:

Geom – Fast 3D Dataset Geometry Analysis
Magma – Seismic Data Recovery
Maxim – Rode and Superfile Manipulation Package

Software Modules

A fast SEG-Y file viewer
SEG-Y QuickView is a free interactive tool to explore and quickly and safely control the quality of SEG-Y files.
Fast 3D Dataset Geometry Analysis
Within seconds this utility reports key parameters including spacing and extents of inlines, crosslines, and x/y coordinates for a 3D dataset as a geometrical quality control check prior to lengthy data loading operations.
Seismic Data Recovery
A modular transcription and data manipulation package meeting a wide range of data input, output, reformat, and Quality Control (QC) requirements. Magma is an industry standard front-end for data analysis and processing. Magma is the chosen plug-in for Halliburton’s SeisSpace ProMax for Foreign Tape Input.
Seismic Data Trawler
An intelligent disk trawler for identifying seismic file information and extracting basic metadata. Marlin can launch Midi, Geom, Minima, Magma, and/or Maxim for data transcription, analysis, QC or editing as required.
Seismic Data Copy, Select and QC
A one-pass software utility to copy, manipulate, QC, and index SEG-D and SEG-Y tape media and disk files whilst extracting and visualizing associated metadata and seismic.
QC and Rationalise SEG-Y and Navigation Data
Interactive QC and display for 2D and 3D SEG-Y data and 2D navigation data on disk. Allows the repair of datasets to prepare them for problem-free uploading to workstation for uses such as processing, analysis and interpretation.
Rode & Superfile Manipulation Package
A command line utility which can be used to examine metadata and restore from RODE files.

Data Management Suite

Troika develops unique solutions to retrieve and repair legacy formats, merge and check navigation data, and visualise quality control attributes.

Functionality includes highly flexible data selection options during input and/or output, decoding, error checking and fault fixing to condition 2D or 3D data and related positioning information either as a stand-alone procedure or as the front-end for processing and analysis. Benefitting from its long-standing contribution to the SEG Technical Standards Committee, Troika provides systems to efficiently validate – and if necessary correct – the contents of a seismic data library’s conformance to SEG-Y and SEG-D industry standard formats, thereby ensuring compliance to company or other regulatory requirements.

Troika has developed capabilities to identify and reformat a wide range of legacy recording formats and media and its world-leading transcription software can handle field tapes, post-stack data and pre-stack data in a variety of sort types such as shot, CMP, offset or other modes. Systems have also been developed to extract seismic and related metadata from record-oriented data encapsulation (RODE) format files.

Software is accessed via a highly intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), enabling geoscientists, engineers, and data management personnel to quickly learn and optimally use its extensive functionality. With more than 6,500 licenses worldwide, it is used by major international exploration and production (E&P) organisations, independents of all sizes, national oil companies (NOCs) and a wide range of oilfield and seismic service companies. It has been integrated as a front-end to several standard E&P systems for input and creation of GIS shapefiles.

System Considerations

  • Small packages, easy to install, can run on both Linux and Windows platforms
  • Ability to be run in a lift and shift approach for cloud platforms
  • Can run complex jobs on basic machines
  • Simple to use GUI modules

Troika's understanding of seismic data is second to none

The Troika team has been involved with the SEG Technical Standards Committee since 1999. Members including Bob Firth, Jill Lewis and Victor Ancira have been driving the development, review and ratification processes of modern industry standards such as SEG-Y 1, SEG-Y 2, SEG-D 2.1, SEG-D 3 and SEG-D 3.1. The result is we understand seismic data recording formats better than any other company.
