Rothwell Introduces PaleoSearch™

Product Insights Bulletin: PaleoSearch™

We are pleased to provide the Rothwell paleo-geoscience user community with periodic insights into our ongoing product direction.

In this “Product Insights” bulletin we would like to introduce PaleoSearch™.

The amount of data gathered and incorporated into basin and play development analysis continues to grow significantly, meaning the value of rapid data access and retrieval has never been greater. Rothwell’s PaleoSearch™ will allow geologists and GIS professionals to execute real-time geologic searches across geologic time, geographic area and keywords. PaleoSearch™ can be used with datasets that are internally developed, purchased from third-party data vendors or compiled from public domain sources.

With PaleoSearch™, users will be able to quickly perform searches that can specify:

  • A time interval of interest,
  • A spatial area of interest (AOI), and
  • Multiple text filters to narrow the search.

Further, users can choose one or more dataset types to search with.

For example, a geoscientist may be interested in searching a geologic dataset for events that occurred on the East Coast of the United States during the time period of 210 Ma to 110 Ma. The user would submit the age range (210–110 Ma) and their geographic area of interest to PaleoSearch™. The user could also constrain the search with a text filter, such as source rock or igneous or rifting.

Traditionally, valuable data and specialized knowledge has resided within “siloed” groups or individuals. However, this same information could be leveraged throughout the organization. PaleoSearch™ will allow authorized users to rapidly search for and find any critical geologic data over a given time period, within a particular area of interest, thereby greatly enhancing the efficiency of their analysis projects.

Our team looks forward to providing more details related to this product throughout the year.

Cobalt International Energy Selects PaleoGIS

We are pleased to announce that Cobalt International Energy, Inc. is the newest user of The Rothwell Group’s plate tectonics reconstruction software, PaleoGIS.

Cobalt International Energy, Inc. (Cobalt) is an independent exploration and production company active in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Angola and Gabon in West Africa. Cobalt was formed in 2005 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas.

The Rothwell Group (Rothwell) is a software engineering and process optimization company. For over a decade, the company has collaborated with its clients to transform their complex business workflows into simplified and tailored solutions that drive operational efficiency, manage costs and increase employee productivity.

For the petrochemical and mineral industries, Rothwell has developed PaleoGIS, plate tectonics reconstruction software, and PaleoClimate™, quick-cycle climate modeling software. These are first-pass screening tools that enable geologists and GIS professionals to predict high-potential analogues with lower risk and cost, as well as to understand basin and play formation with greater accuracy. The products are installed at the majority of the largest and fastest-growing global oil and gas and mineral exploration companies.

Rothwell enhances raster reconstruction with the latest release of PaleoGIS, introduces batch processing with PaleoRun

Rothwell, the leading provider of plate tectonic reconstruction modeling for the petrochemical and mineral industries, introduced PaleoGIS 4.2 and PaleoRun 1.0 at it’s recent annual Users Conference in Houston.

PaleoGIS 4.2 was designed to address the growing demand for leveraging raster images within the exploration screening workflow. The release incorporates a new raster reconstruction algorithm that significantly improves raster reconstruction reliability, consistency and performance. In addition, this version includes the ability to un-reconstruct rasters and supports rasters with datums other than WGS84.

Frequently, Geoscientists and GIS professionals need to run a large number of reconstructions, animations or climate simulations. Or, kick-off an extended analysis. This often occurs when their plate model vendor releases new data. Updating a library of reconstructions can be very time consuming. Now, with PaleoRun, users can execute batch runs that include either PaleoGIS, PaleoClimate or both jobs. Jobs can be scheduled for regular intervals or overnight or over the weekend if they are long running.

Rothwell’s Paleo products provide a robust suite of first pass plate tectonic screening tools that enable exploration geologists and GIS professionals to dynamically visualize, characterize, and understand basin and play development.

Both PaleoGIS 4.2 and PaleoRun 1.0 are immediately available.
