Robust near-surface velocity modeling
Generate a near-surface velocity model for reflection tomography iterations in a depth migration workflow or for statics calculations.
Acquire insights from La Fourche, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, and more
The Mississippi Delta Depth I–IV and Cameron-Vermilion Depth 1 surveys are of areas with well-established production, but both offer further exploration opportunities, especially at greater depths than explored by previous drilling (deeper than 20,000 ft).
Improved imaging around salt flanks and overhangs should also lead to identification of new targets.
The Cameron-Vermilion Depth 1 survey of ultradeep structures at the Lower Tertiary Frio and Wilcox levels also suggests additional opportunities.
To address the extreme statics found in traditional transition zones, these surveys were processed with
Once the preprocessing has been completed, we can begin depth imaging with full-azimuth tomography for improved anisotropic velocity model building and with improved multiple attenuation that results from better near-offset coverage.
