Time-lapse (4D) seismic has been proven as a reservoir management tool. By acquiring successive seismic images on the same producing field, geophysicists can identify by-passed oil, optimize exploitation drilling investments, and better manage injection programs. The key to 4D seismic is repeatability, and the keys to repeatability are owned by ION.
To ensure that your 4D surveys successfully meet your reservoir development goals, ION offers a suite of solutions for 4D seismic programs, including:
- Asset assessment and feasibility study services
- Survey design services
- Streamer acquisition technologies
- Seabed acquisition technologies
- Data management software and services
- Seismic data processing
Our 4D solutions are even more powerful when coupled with our full-wave technologies. ION's digital, full-wave sensor, , gives us a natural advantage in monitoring fluid movements from the ocean bottom (using VectorSeis Ocean, our redeployable seabed acquisition system). For 2D and 3D , , , and support highly repeatable time-lapse acquisition using towed streamers.
Given our toolkit and experience, the ION family of companies is the partner of choice for designing and executing critical 4D programs.
