In spite of publicised benefits, inverted data is not routinely generated. Inversion of seismic data to Acoustic Impedance (AI) is seen as a specialist activity. To overcome this obstacle this algorithm provides a quick, easy to use and stable method which can be routinely included in the exploration geoscientist’s workflow. It performs significantly better than traditional fast track methods.
  • Enables the inversion of 3D seismic data.
  • Allows the geoscientist to generate relative acoustic impedance in a time frame previously thought impossible.
  • Provides a true real time seismic view of colored inversion data.
  • With immediate feedback you will have the time to do many “what-ifs” allowing you to determine the optimum colored inversion operator.
  • Provides a globally optimised inversion consistent with the observed behaviour from well logs.
  • The SCI process is rapid, robust, and inexpensive which eliminates the need for expert users.
  • De-trend and normalisation allows the relative amplitude changes observed in the impedance volumes to be interpreted quantitatively.
  • The derived colored inversion operator can be applied within the SCI process
  • Additionally the colored inversion operator can be applied via the Workflow Manager
SCI provides a set of customisable charts and a seismic view window. Both are updated in real time allowing the geoscientist to quickly determine the parameters for generating an optimum operator. Using seismic directly from the Petrel software the analysis can be performed rapidly. The saved SCI operator can be applied to the input seismic volume via the SCI process or the Workflow Manager.
