All the Right Tools: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Subsurface E&P Success

In the Barents Sea, accurately imaging flanks and the bottom of the salt is a challenge. This webinar highlights how a range of multidisciplinary information and data sources can help you optimize illumination of complex structures, better assess prospectivity, and more accurately detect potentially hydrocarbon-bearing geological units.

Webinar: The Role of Surface Seismic

The Role of Surface Seismic:
Water Avoidance, Landing, and Sweet-Spotting, Solutions for the Permian Basin

In the Permian Basin, well performance was negatively impacted because of landing 200 ft or more too low, fracking into poor reservoirs, producing excessive water associated with faulting either above or below target stratigraphic levels, or a combination thereof. In this talk, we demonstrate how seismic data helped mitigate risk and ensure economic success for wells in the region.

Improving Subsalt Images Using Advanced Image Enhancement Techniques

Despite significant advances in imaging technology and processing, subsalt image interpretability remains a major challenge. Join this webinar to learn about recent technologies developed by WesternGeco that markedly improve subsalt images by boosting the desired signal and suppressing unwanted noise: IGIE interpretation-guided image enhancement, converted wave attenuation (CWA), shot selection migration, and interpretation-guided selective stacking (IGSS).

Addressing 3D Seismic Illumination Challenges: Improved Imaging and Quantitative Interpretation

Inadequate subsurface illumination resulting from complex geology or the limitations of the acquisition geometry has detrimental effects on the amplitude and phase of the migrated image and in turn on both the structural and quantitative interpretation. Join this webinar to learn how least-squares migration implemented in the image domain and depth domain inversion efficiently mitigate illumination effects, as demonstrated with synthetic and field data examples.
