hiQbe® at a glance:
hiQbe® is available as a multi-client product in Norway, the UK and Australia and can be purchased on an annual lease or a project by project basis. For the rest of the world, AGR builds proprietary hiQbe® cube upon request, using velocity data provided by the client.
The product extracts information from AGR’s vast database and from contributing data owners as a foundation for the insight it provides. To put this into perspective, AGR data held in Norway is more than twice the size of that released in Diskos. In addition to our own database, clients may provide AGR with their own velocity data. This helps to ensure that a service of the best possible quality is achieved, for the client’s area and region of interest.
AGR also provides a tailored hiQbe® service, where the product is developed with the client’s own data. This is available globally and can be performed with or without well calibration.
AGR’s Norway hiQbe® database contains all released seismic processing velocities from Diskos, plus selected non-released data contributed by other data owners. The well velocity data consist of check shots from Diskos. All released wells with velocity data are included. The Norway hiQbe® is developed together with UK data and is supported by a large number of UK wells along the UK-Norway median line in the North Sea.
Our UK database consists of a large amount of non-released 2D velocity data and all available released seismic stacking velocities from Diskos (Norwegian sector), partly covering the UK sector. We also hold proprietary check shot data from most UK exploration wells and public domain check shot data from Diskos, adjacent to the UK sector. Since 2017, velocity data released by the UK Oil and Gas Authorities (OGA) and made available through the National Data Repository (NDR) has also been added.
hiQbe® is available for the North West Shelf and the Bight Basin, with other areas serviced on request. The database held for the Australia hiQube® includes all available open file seismic processing velocities, sourced from the Western Australian Petroleum and Geothermal Information Management System (WAPIMS), directly from Geoscience Australia (GA) and the Department of Mines, Western Australia (DMP). Well velocity data consists of check shots from selected wells across the area.
