Reverse Time Migration
Advanced two-way wave-equation prestack migration
Accurately image in and below areas with great structural and velocity complexity.
3D multiclient full-azimuth, long-offset data from Central Gulf of Mexico
The Schlumberger South Timbalier 3D multiclient survey comprises high-fidelity full-azimuth acquisition from over 118 OCS blocks in the Central Gulf of Mexico.
This survey covers areas from
Combining full-azimuth and long offsets with high-end processing technologies like anisotropic deghosted reverse time migration (DRTM), the South Timbalier survey improves visualization of complex salt structures and steeply dipping sediment areas. With integrated technology and geoscience expertise, this survey delivers improved imaging of complex structures like diapiric salt in the Lower Miocene/Oligocene plays, by providing
The South Timbalier 3D multiclient survey was acquired using multivessel full-azimuth acquisition, which employed two fleets of two vessels—one source and one recording boat—equipped with a point-receiver marine seismic system. Recording boats continuously shoot in a series of interlinked circles with a 5,500-m radius, and data are acquired over the full-azimuth (360°) and over the full offset range to deliver a 10-km long-offset dataset.
