Cooperations / Partners

We can use all commercial plugins of dGB and third parties, offered in the software portfolio of OpendTect Pro. Collaborative project proposals in dGB style and format will be submitted. A significant part of the work will be carried out at Enschede under supervision of dGB’s experts. This ensures that the high quality standards of dGB will be met.

Please find more information about dGB's software:

We cooperate with Terra Geoservice, a recently founded independent German consulting company offering geoscientific services for the oil & gas industry, storage management, geothermal exploration and nuclear waste disposal. An expert team of geologists, geophysicists and petrophysicists is available for integrated project solutions.

Infrastructure: hardware and software

In order to run your projects, we have installed a powerful hardware, so that we can tackle also mid-size 3D seismic surveys for pre-stack inversion and AVO analysis.

Project archiving is very important. We make sure that we run continuous back-ups and hold archives at two distinct locations.

On the software side, our philosophy is to choose the software which is best suited for each individual project.

Our Hardware
  • TERRA 8600 power workstation with
  • 2 Intel Xeon Gold 5222, 4 cores CPUs, 3.8 GHz,
  • RAM 128 GB,
  • graphic card NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000, 8GB
  • 1 SSD PCIe 2TB fast internal disc and
  • 1 HDD 4TB internal disc.
We run the following software
  • STRATA Plus (GeoSoftware, formerly CGG Hampson Russell)
  • OpendTect Pro with all available commercial plugins, due to our collaboration with dGB Earth Sciences
  • IP petrophysical software (Lloyd's Register, formerly Senergy)
  • Seismic Spectral Blueing SSB (ARK CLS)
Other software we will lease for a certain project, for example
  • EMERGE, ISMAP, AVO, RockSI, LithoSI software modules from CGG- Hampson Russell (neural network and geostatistical analysis, AVO, rock physics and lithology classification)
  • RokDoc 1D/2D (rock physics) and reservoir characterization/seismic inversions from company IkonSciences
  • Interwell and EasyTrace (seismic inversion), from company BeicipFranlab
  • InverTrace Plus and RockTrace (seismic inversion), from CGG-Jason
  • Paradise (multi-attribute seismic analysis), from company Geophysical Insights

What is Amisia?

Amisia-GeoConsultants are based in the small beautiful town of Lingen, in the Emsland region of Northwest Germany, close to the Dutch-German border. The Emsland and the Grafschaft Bentheim to its west straddles the western part of the prolific Lower Saxony oil and gas basin. For a long time, the oil field Rühlermoor was the largest onshore German oilfield (see picture of oil field at peat production area).  This field and many other small-scale oil and gas fields are still producing until now.

Our name Amisia refers to the Latin name of the river Ems, which is meandering through a lovely landscape. About 2000 years ago, from 12 BC until 16 AD, the Romans under emperor Augustus tried to conquer the western area of Germania Magna, one part of which is the Emsland. Some sources say that the famous Roman commander Germanicus came up the river Amisia (Ems) together with his soldiers in summer 15 AD, starting from a military base at the mouth of the Amisia, at the North Sea, near the modern town of Emden. All this happened after the campaign of commander Varus suffered a disastrous defeat at the battle of Teutoburg in 9 AD. The Romans never succeeded to conquer this free part of Germania and make it a part of the huge Roman Empire.
