Improving Seismic Quality

The advent of the individually steerable streamer has lead to the development of WesternGeco’s ‘Over/Under’ seismic recording technique, resulting in a dramatic improvement in seismic quality and the ability to visualise sub-salt and sub-basalt.

A Simple Guide to Seismic Amplitudes and Detuning

Seismic amplitude changes may tell us something about reservoir lithology, porosity, and/or fluids. However, seismic tuning effects are potentially much larger than amplitude variations due to geological changes. Understanding this key concept is critical to effective seismic interpretation.
