Interpretation and Modeling
E&P projects require the interpretation of different seismic datasets. In complex structural and stratigraphic environments, interpreters spend a lot of time interpreting and correlating seismic reflectors across tectonic deformations. They look for the most appropriate technology to improve the speed and quality of their seismic interpretation, in order to extract more detailed information from seismic volumes. One solution is a workflow that introduces the concept of volume interpretation and geologic modeling while interpreting. This innovative workflow is based on the unbiased automatic extraction of unlimited seismic horizons from a 3D seismic volume or vertical focused window, and on validating the interpretations in paleo-chronostratigraphic space.
The presentation will address the challenges and show how this workflow increases productivity by ensuring that the interpretations are geologically valid, plausible and consistent. In this way, they accelerate the prospectivity and well planning decision-making processes.
