Migris provides software for describing and reducing geological and economical exploration risk by simulating geological processes. Migris offers this software to the market as packaged software or as client-funded studies. For more about Migris, see https://migris.no/.

The use of migration modelling techniques in the risk analysis of exploration prospects can help describe and reduce geological and economic uncertainties before drilling exploration wells. Migris uses new risk assessment techniques, combining Monte Carlo and migration modelling. The underlying idea is to perform simulations at seismic resolution with complex geometry while retaining interactivity to allow for high turn-around of analysis results. The visualization solution is integrated with the simulator in a Simultaneous Simulation and Visualization (SSV) scheme. This allows exploration geologists to run many alternative simulation scenarios in hours, rather than weeks.

Migris started its collaboration with Ceetron in 2007 and has relied on Ceetron components for its GUI and 3D graphics development.

In 2016, the software Migri was upgraded with graphics from Ceetron’s 3rd generation visualization platform, Ceetron Desktop Components and Ceetron Cloud Components, including support for web-based 3D model sharing.

Business benefits for Migris of integrating 3D visualization components from Ceetron


The long-term support of Ceetron on the use of their Ceetron Desktop Components has been vital for Migris. This has allowed us to concentrate on our business case, which is to provide critical decision support systems to oil exploration companies. Delivering world-class petroleum systems modelling technology could only be done by fully utilizing 3D visualization technologies.
