ABSTRACT
Computer systems currently used in oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) generally do not allow the combined display of all the necessary data types. SIVIEP (System for Integrated Visualization in Exploration and Production) was conceived as a system for the visualization of integrated oil and gas E&P projects. It allows the combination, in a single tridimensional scene, of both geosciences and engineering models. This article discusses some of the project's technical challenges, such as the large amount of heterogeneous data; the different orders of magnitude of scene elements; software extensibility to allow new data formats, visualization, and analysis; and VR features to provide immersive visualization in different environments.
