The Intel-based system immediately delivered a three-fold processing performance improvement at 50 per cent of the cost of the legacy RISC-based system in simulating and modelling reservoirs, increasing the speed, accuracy and precision with which ADMA is able to locate, explore and extract oil deposits to support its expanding operations. The ADMA is a leading Abu Dhabi-based energy producer.

The oil and gas company drills over 35 oil wells and produces over 750,000 drums of oil each year, making it critical that its centralised seismic processing system provides accurate 3D models of the earth's sub-surface to help engineers identify prime oil and gas prospect opportunities for drilling.

The resulting models can be sliced and reprocessed to highlight how fluid will flow through the earth's surface and the precise location at which oil can be best extracted, streamlining overall operations.
