We love a challenge

From day one, our clients came to us with challenges they needed solved. That’s how our journey started, and that is how it continues to evolve.

“The feedback I provided was implemented in the software platform. This is nice! It rarely happens in the industry today. It might be the most valuable part of the relationship with Sharp Reflections.”

Foundation Projects



Focused on creating enhancements to the HPC engine to accelerate the extensive prestack processing and QA/QC toolkit in PreStack Pro (now the Sharp Reflections Big Data platform).

Partners: Equinor, Aker BP, Spring Energy, Tullow Oil, RSI Technology



Focused on developing a new amplitude interpretation toolkit as well as enhancing the interactive capabilities of the 3D visualization rendering engine and communication between the 2D and 3D viewers.

Partners: Marathon Oil, Det Norske, RSI, Equinor (Statoil), Spring Energy, Tullow Oil, Premier Oil, NORECO, Lundin



Covered processing toolkit enhancements, synthetic modeling and quantitative data analysis tools, data comparison tools, prestack horizon interpretation and Petrel data link.

Partners: Tullow Oil, Centrica, Lundin, NORECO, Dana Petroleum, Premier Oil, Marathon Oil, Det norske, VNG



Developed new approaches to horizon interpretation, seismic well tie, seismically derived volumetric estimation, and adapting well-established seismic spectral decomposition algorithms to allow easy investigation of AVO related effects.

Partners: Wintershall DEA, Neptune Energy, Spirit Energy, Aker BP, Equinor, Vår Energi, CAIRN, Tullow Oil, Edison



A game changing project set to amplify the 4D QI capability of the Sharp Reflections platform. The project is focused on multihorizon time-lapse interpretation, 4D AVO inversion, time-shift estimation, correction and interpretation, 4D forward modeling, rock physics and amplitude interpretation. Pairing industry sponsors and research partners, Sharp Reflections aims to create a robust 4D QI capability.


“Sharp Reflections is a small organization with great and caring people who are all determined to understand their clients. They have the right mindset and energy to solve everything that they can!”
