Allton is developing an inhouse software suite to ensure that hardware and software are designed and developed in a complementary manner to secure optimal quality and efficiency. Having access to both hardware and software also enables secures the best process for improvements and upgrades. The software suite will include all functionality from feasibility studies to data QC, processing and inversion. The full software suite or modules will be available for data licensing. Software development is currently on going with individual modules ready for licensing once acceptance testing is completed.
Allton ensure the highest possible performance of our equipment by continuously monitoring the equipment and the feedback from the analysis of recorded data. A rigid quality control system implemented in the EzQC software is employed to deliver the best possible results from our operation.
The on-board processing quality control workflow ensures high quality data sets, as well as clear and early detection of potential problems. Fully processed data sets are transferred by satellite to land within hours after each round of receiver recovery is completed. This enables a fast-track delivery with a feedback cycle for both onshore geoscientists and on-board client representatives.
After the offshore data delivery is approved, the G&G team start working on data conditioning and preparation for inversion.

Detailed Data Quality Control
Allton has developed an interactive 1D feasibility study program called EzExplorer. With EzExplorer Allton can work collaboratively with our clients on the fly building multiple geomodels for sensitivity testing. EzExplorer flexibility allows testing of a number of different parameters such as resistivity, prospect burial depth, prospect thickness and other suggested parameters. EzExplorer can efficiently scan any multi-dimensional parameters that may be of interest to check sensitivity to a range of prospects under different geological settings such as the presence of a volcanic layer or salt.
Figure 1: Response of target with and without reservoir for two receiver-transmitter offsets for a model with given parameter settings.
Figure 2: Max sensitivity as a function of response time vs receiver-transmitter offset for a given model scan. It’s possible to scan all other parameters like sea depth and target thickness interactively to investigate how this will affect the sensitivity
