About SeisWare

Over 20 years ago, a couple of software developers and a couple of geoscientists shared some common goals. They wanted to run a company that developed innovative software for the energy industry, provided exceptional customer support and was a fun place to work. They accomplished these goals, and they continue to lead and grow the company with this same vision.

1996 – Zokero Inc. is Formed

A couple of software developers started a software company from their basements. They developed SeisWare, a windows-based seismic interpretation software package.

1997 – Blue Castle Corp. is Formed

A couple of geoscientist, fed up with mediocre software support, decide to start their own company to provide the kind of support they always wished they’d received—responsive, resourceful, and offered by industry experts.

1998 – SeisWare v1.0 is Released

Zokero releases their first version of SeisWare seismic interpretation software, and contracts Blue Castle to support the product. SeisWare was being sold as a subscription model, unheard of in the software industry at that time.

2001 – Zokero Makes a Move

The Zokero developers move out of their basements and into real office space with the Blue Castle team, who now exclusively support SeisWare software.

2005 – SeisWare 6.2 Released

Zokero releases a version of the software with some really great interpretation tools, AND with a really cool ad campaign.

2008 – SeisWare Makes a Move

SeisWare Inc. opens in Houston, y’all, and can now provide sales and support south of the border.

2009 – An Official Partnership

We make it official. Zokero and Blue Castle merge to form SeisWare International Inc.

2018 – SeisWare Rebrand

To alleviate the confusion caused by SeisWare (the company) developing SeisWare (the product) and Recon (the other product) we rebrand to Geophysics by SeisWare and Geology by SeisWare.

2018 – Now with Field Development

SeisWare International Inc. continues to diversify, and we release our Field Development tool.

20 Years with SeisWare

SeisWare is a very, very intuitive software that has the all capability that I need to perform a geophysical analysis in a very efficient manner. A huge bonus is that the Help desk is very responsive (quick to answer) to questions and extremely knowledgeable

Best Software for 2D/3D Seismic Mapping

I have been using this software for more than 15 years. SeisWare is my go-to tool for 2D and 3D seismic mapping and integration of these datasets. There is no other product on the market that can do these tasks as well as SeisWare can. If I have any issues with the software, the support team is fast and responsive and has me sorted in no time.

Everything about the workflows just makes sense.

I couldn't be more happy with the software. Everything about the workflows just makes sense. Also, I couldn't be more impressed by the service I have received from SeisWare. Truly impressive and a reflection of the team you work with.

Alex Branda
Petroleum Geologist, Ambrose LLC

I use Geophysics as a home-base for my seismic interpretation projects.

It’s a highly efficient and effective software platform to setup and use, thus making it an ideal tool to integrate geophysical data into an E&P asset team.

Phil Butler, P. Geo

SeisWare continues to be the seismic interpretation choice at EnCana.

EnCana was tasked with migrating geoscientists to a PC based software platform. Geophysics was one of four products we tested as part of the RFP. SeisWare won the contract in July 2004 and continues to be the seismic interpretation choice at EnCana.

Gary Stangl
Group Lead Production & Development, Canadian Plains, EnCana Corporation

I am still impressed by the quality of the product.

After over a dozen years of using Geophysics, I am still impressed by the quality of the product, the speed and efficiency of their help center, and their superior customer service. Five years ago I had to decide which seismic interpretation package to purchase for my company, and I chose SeisWare. I have never regretted that decision.
