IsoMetrix marine isometric seismic technology enables accurate imaging not only of target formations but also of the overburden, potential shallow drilling hazards, and often even seabed morphology. In the Barents Sea, high spatial resolution has made it possible to auto-track a fault system independent of orientation and highlight small-scale fluvial geomorphological features. In a survey over the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea, significant coherent data such as diffractions was observed on the IsoMetrix Py (i.e. crossline) data. Compared to previous datasets, the survey provided enhanced temporal and spatial resolution for detailed interpretation at multiple levels.
