Full-wave imaging addresses the E&P industry's most challenging seismic acquisition and processing situations, including:
- Time-lapse (4D) reservoir monitoring, where high resolution images (of both lithology and fluid location) is required and ambient noise from production operations can interfere with the quality of the acquired data.
The near-surface velocity imaging challenges of the desert and Arctic lend themselves to full-wave imaging. VectorSeis is a key enabling technology, but full-wave is about more than just the sensor. It's also about designing a tailored survey for long-offset, wide azimuth data acquisition, taking into account the nuances of planning a survey to enhance the P-wave signal and, perhaps, acquire converted wave data, and processing the data to account for azimuthal velocity and anisotropy.
Challenging environments represent unique challenges whose potential can best be unlocked through cutting-edge, integrated solutions that incorporate full-wave technologies.
