About Us

Headwave greatly improves the way geoscientists image, interpret and understand the subsurface, without barriers.

What We Do

Since 2005, Headwave's ambition has been to provide leading-edge software by challenging the traditional ways of developing software in the E&P industry.

By rethinking E&P workflows, we enable end-users to focus on their geoscience as opposed to how to operate the software.

Who Are Our Users & Customers?

Headwave’s clients range from some of the supermajors to small boutique shops in odd corners of the world.

Users of Headwave's software are generally the geophysicists involved in seismic processing and imaging, or the interpreters doing frontier interpretation and DHI analysis.

The People Behind Headwave

Our people is a brilliant mix of eager G&G experts and computer programmers of all ages. Our G&G experts have considerable, senior experience from all aspects of G&G, such as processing, interpretation, rock physics and inversion. Our managers and senior advisers have backgrounds from companies such as Shell, Jason, WesternGeco, ExxonMobil, and others.


In Headwave, there is fundamentally no difference between management and other staff - we're all in it for the fun and ability to do something cool.
