The problems which arise during the gas-oil exploration process and require high-performance computing resources can be divided in two groups.

The first group is seismic data processing, the second group is 3D reservoir simulating for the exploration process optimization.

For the each group of problems typical applications used in real technological process were chosen, and their behavior was examined on different computational architectures.

Performed analysis shows that the applications of the first group have good scalability potential on the studied computational platforms, meanwhile for the applications of the second group the limit of the performance increasing is reached relatively fast.
