Today in deep water and new frontiers, the ability to understand what is below complex structures is critical in defining the subsurface and better understanding the petroleum system of an area. Make or break risk and economic project decisions can depend on understanding this complexity.

In this first edition of Insights, we highlight, in four categories, a selection of recent publications meeting the challenges of imaging complex subsurface structures.

  • Wavefield reconstruction based on multicomponent data
  • Full-azimuth data acquisition
  • Full waveform inversion for velocity model building
  • Seismic-guided drilling
