  • OpendTect is an innovative and advanced open source environment
  • OpendTect is an inexpensive and a constantly growing system
  • OpendTect streamlines research at E&P companies, since it replaces a multitude of formats and separate programs, that are now hampering progress. OpendTect functions as an umbrella, bringing everything together, hence securing continuity
  • 3rd party vendors use OpendTect since it is quickly becoming a standard at E&P companies, making niche products easier to sell
