Press Release Schlumberger Launches Two New Full-Azimuth Multiclient Surveys in the US Gulf of Mexico
Latest technologies for survey acquisition and imaging employed to support operational decisions.
The Revolution surveys comprise high-fidelity dual-coil multiclient seismic data from more than 36,260 km2 of diverse deepwater Gulf of Mexico locations, each sharing characteristics of complex salt geometries and structures.
Surveyed basin areas
Combining ultralong offsets with high-end processing technologies like full waveform inversion and anisotropic reverse time migration, Revolution surveys improve visualization in the most complex subsalt geometries, including complex salt structures, rugose salt tops, shallow salt bodies, and steeply dipping sediment areas.
Revolution surveys were designed to enable you to make better-informed, cost-effective strategic decisions during the exploration, development, and production phases. With integrated technology and geoscience expertise, these surveys deliver improved imaging in and around challenging structures, providing
The full Revolution survey dataset was acquired using dual-coil multivessel full-azimuth acquisition, which employs four vessels—two source and two recording boats—equipped with a point-receiver marine seismic system. Recording boats continuously shoot in a series of interlinked circles with 6,250-m radius, and data are acquired over the full-azimuth, 360° and over the full offset range to deliver a 14-km long-offset dataset.
