Hello May! As of May 1st, we have just 66 more sleeps until the start of the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede! Not that I’m counting…

Hopefully everyone who attended the CSEG/CSPG/CWLS GeoConvention found the experience worthwhile both technically and for networking opportunities. Huge thanks to the MANY volunteers who helped shape the events and to the members of JACC (Joint Annual Convention Committee) and our Convention Staff.

Oh yes… and just 55 more sleeps until the T-Wave Tournament!


To better reflect our increasingly diverse customer base, we have changed our name from Oil Sands Imaging to Sound QI (effective May 1st). It’s not just the name that is new. In addition to offering a comprehensive reservoir characterization package, we will now be providing individual Quantitative Interpretation (QI) services scalable to your project needs.
