Geoprocesados and DownUnder GeoSolutions have announced the opening of a new DUG McCloud-based seismic processing and imaging centre in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Operating as Geoprocesados Serviços Sismicos, this new centre will offer clients a full suite of P&I services, for both onshore and offshore projects, including advanced least-squares imaging tools such as reverse time migration and high-frequency full-waveform inversion, DUG said in a media release.
Geoprocesados General Manager Javier Rubio said: “Geoprocesados has been operating successfully in Mexico, Argentina and Colombia for more than 20 years, providing advanced seismic P&I services.

“Brazil has become the largest oil-producing country in Latin America and we see a great opportunity to expand our operations into this very active market. With the power and leading-edge technology of DUG McCloud behind us, we are confident that we can successfully take on the most complex subsurface imaging projects, of any size, and quickly become a market leader.”
DUG said that its DUG McCloud platform would enable Geoprocesados to deliver customized solutions using DUG’s high-performance computing as a service (HPCaaS), seismic P&I services and the DUG Insight geoscience software offerings.
DUG Managing Director Matthew Lamont said: “Geoprocesados, in Mexico, was one of the early adopters of DUG McCloud, coming on board in early 2019. We are excited to strengthen our ongoing collaboration with the launch of the new centre in Rio de Janeiro. We know that DUG McCloud will give them an edge in a new market, enabling them to offer super-fast turnarounds with state-of-the-art technologies.”
