The Schlumberger EDGE project provides a detailed regional view over the prolific deepwater Central Gulf of Mexico through the combination of the most advanced seismic acquisition techniques, earth model building, and imaging technologies.

One unified earth model

Our geologically-consistent earth model leverages the inline image clarity of wide-azimuth acquisition (WAZ) and the azimuthal coverage and long-offset velocity of dual coil shooting multivessel full-azimuth acquisition (FAZ).

This is the first time public geological and borehole data and proprietary multiclient data has been integrated into the modeling process. With one unified earth model, you can see the underexplored subsalt structures of the Central Gulf of Mexico like never before.

Building on the conventional multiclient offering, EDGE gives you the knowledge to make informed decisions from exploration through appraisal and development.

More than unique—affordable

The EDGE project is not only unique to the market but is competitively priced, providing you unprecedented data and knowledge to

  • minimize subsalt uncertainty
  • efficiently locate hydrocarbons
  • reduce environmental risks while maximizing recovery.

The more complete your picture, the greater likelihood of success. With EDGE, you can adapt your investment strategy—across exploration, appraisal, and development—to optimize your success in the upcoming lease sales.
