Shale Reservoir Production is a Major Focus of New Ikon Science Release

October 30th 2017: A new release from Ikon Science, the reservoir geoscience company, is set to raise the status and value of its already iconic RokDoc software. Highlight of the major upgrade is a rock physics module focused on improving the modelling and prediction of unconventional oil and gas reservoirs. The results will help producers maximize output from shale reserves like those typically found in North America.

Mark Bashforth, CEO, Ikon Science, said: ‘It is not often that we can say our latest offering is moving the needle. But RokDoc 6.5.0 really is a leap forward in terms of correlating the value of seismic data with the underlying rock structure of reservoir targets. We are particularly excited about our collaboration with University of Houston Research Professor Lev Vernik on enhancements to our unconventional modelling capabilities. This has major implications for predicting seismic behaviours in unconventional reservoir plays, which in turn can lead to smarter extraction strategies.'
An extensive array of unconventional models can be generated with this latest RokDoc release to better calibrate log and core data in unconventional resource plays. The method is based on work by Prof Vernik outlined in his book Seismic Petrophysics in Quantitative Interpretation published last year and due to be featured in a forthcoming online company webinar*. The rock physics module also includes Attrimod, a new multi-2D modelling and attribute package developed in collaboration with a leading Supermajor.

The RokDoc 6.5.0 upgrade was developed under the leadership of Dr Denis Saussus, Ikon Science's Chief Technical Officer. It covers significant improvements to the RokDoc platform as well as the reservoir characterization module (RokDoc-Ji-Fi), recent winner of the World Oil 2017 award for exploration technology, plus enhancements to the company's industry-leading geopressure module.

‘Our growing software community should appreciate the enhanced data loading and the easy manipulation and viewing of log data and attributes', Dr Saussus commented. ‘ Rokdoc functions are now almost all converted to the new user interface which streamlines workflows and reduces keyboard clicks.'

*The full benefits of the new software will be detailed in a 20-minute webinar entitled Rokdoc 6.5.0 - The future of GeoPrediction on 2 November 2018 accessible by registering on the company website –
