Velocity modeling is a critical step in accurate time-to-depth conversion and hydrocarbon volume estimation. Consequently, a comprehensive and intuitive solution fully integrated into the main interpretation platform is crucial for workflow productivity.

The velocity model is required in several steps of typical G&G workflows, such as time-to-depth (interpretations and seismic trace data), QSI activities, well log data domain conversion (depth-to-time), and well planning.  To support these multiple objectives, a single and shared window implementation is required to build velocity models consistently, combining different velocity sources in a more straightforward way. 

This Lunch and Learn session will show how the Global Velocity Model can enable velocity workflows that use many different kinds of velocity information, spanning simple to complex geology, in cases where there are few or no wells to many wells, and from a single seismic survey to multi-survey cases.


A high-velocity layer with lateral velocity changes is easily inserted into a lower velocity background velocity trend using the Global Velocity Model builder
