Illuminate the subsurface in deepwater US Gulf of Mexico

SLB (Exploration Data) in collaboration with TGS have completed acquisition of Engagement 3 a 2,602-km2 ultralong-offset, full-waveform inversion (FWI) ocean bottom node (OBN) Multiclient project in the US Gulf of Mexico. This new project extends the successful Engagement 1 and Engagement 2 footprint into the south of Green Canyon and northern Walker Ridge and is supported by industry funding.

Data processing and imaging is being performed by SLB utilizing the latest signal processing techniques, together with enhanced template-matching full-waveform inversion (ETM FWI) on ultralong offsets, to create a step change in velocity model accuracy. Engagement 3 is the integration of OBN data and velocity model with SLB legacy E-Octopus and Revolution survey streamer data to deliver completely new subsurface images to the industry. First FWI products will be delivered to underwriters in August 2023 and final products are scheduled for Q1 2024.

Andrea Lovatini, SLB Director of Exploration Data, commented: “Engagement 3 extends the successful application of this next-generation seismic technology in the central US Gulf of Mexico that is delivering new subsurface and subsalt insights. SLB EXD and TGS are very pleased to see E&P companies supporting technology change in this geologically complex area”.
