Seequent introduces Leapfrog Energy for subsurface mapping

Jun 05 2023


The solution will help to accelerate basin and reservoir screening to find the best places for carbon capture and storage.

Leapfrog Energy brings together Seequent’s leading geological modelling solution and geostatistical capability, along with the company’s experience in geothermal, mining, civil engineering and environment, into a targeted industry solution.

Leapfrog Energy enables rapid understanding of subsurface properties, from even the sparsest amount of data, to help identify energy resources, assess ground conditions for offshore wind projects, and find locations for carbon capture, utilisation, and storage.

Jeremy O’Brien, Energy Segment Director, Seequent, said, “Seequent is a market leader in the geothermal industry with our geological modelling software Leapfrog. It feels like a natural step to extend Leapfrog to the rest of the energy industry, with a number of energy companies already using it for their energy transition initiatives.”

Key industry uses for Leapfrog Energy include:

·       Continuing to lead subsurface analysis in the geothermal industry – Seequent software already supports many of the world’s leading geothermal power producers, from well planning to sustainably operating a geothermal asset.

·       Wind energy – bringing clarity to the complexities of the sea floor and subsurface, helping wind operators understand how and where to site their turbines using industry-leading integrated ground modelling and structural design workflows.

·       Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) – accelerating basin and reservoir screening to find the best places for capture and storage.

·       Oil and gas – complementing robust industry-standard workflows for reconnaissance and quality assurance with rapid geological modelling – with transformative reductions in modelling time.

O’Brien added, “Subsurface specialists need flexible and fast tools like Leapfrog Energy to understand subsurface conditions and share their knowledge in a way that resonates with technical and non-technical stakeholders.”

Leapfrog Energy can be complemented with other solutions in the Seequent portfolio, including cloud collaboration tool Seequent Central, which allows multidisciplinary teams to track and share data, and our UXO solution for marine surveys. Seequent’s PLAXIS, for geotechnical analysis, and geophysics solution Oasis Montaj have been used in exploration by the energy majors for more than 30 years.

Graham Grant, Chief Executive Officer, Seequent, said, “Seequent’s comprehensive portfolio of subsurface solutions helps industries understand the subsurface to help them make clear, confident decisions, reach outcomes quickly, reduce cost and risk, and accelerate their innovation. The energy industry is in the midst of one of the largest industrial transitions in modern history. We understand this transition is complex, and that all parts of the energy industry have a key role to play. Seequent is committed to continue supporting the industry as it navigates the challenges and opportunities ahead.”
