Philippines Sulu Sea & East Palawan Basin

Reprocessed multiclient 2D seismic data

Newly reprocessed multiclient 2D seismic data from the Philippines Sulu Sea and East Palawan Basin are now available. The reprocessing project was conducted in association with MultiClient Geophysical (MCG).

The data coverage and quality are appropriate for

  • establishing a regional geologic framework  
  • identifying, mapping, and predicting source, reservoir, and seal of various plays
  • evaluating prospectivity
  • optimizing exploration work programs.

Steps included in the reprocessing workflow

  • Noise attenuation
  • 2D surface-related multiple elimination (SRME)
  • Radon demultiple
  • Postradon isolating multiple algorithm (PRIMAL)
  • Isotropic Kirchhoff prestack time migration (PSTM)
  • Postmigration radon demultiple
  • Dense spatially continuous velocity analysis (SCVA)
  • Mute and final stack
