Ocean Bottom Node acquisition is known to improve seismic velocity model building and imaging, especially for deep and complex targets. Due to cost considerations, OBN surveys are typically only acquired around the production field, using a relatively dense receiver grid. At the exploration phase ...

The Atlantis Field has gone through more than two decades of continuous seismic imaging efforts, during which time many innovative technologies were incubated, the most recent one being the successful application of full-waveform inversion (FWI) in salt environments. This technique led to a significant ...

The increasing focus on de-risking near-field exploration in the Northern Viking Graben area demands data with improved imaging. This has led to CGG initiating a new multi-year acquisition programme to acquire east–west triple-source multi-sensor seismic data over a 24,000 km2 area, adding a second ...

Full-waveform inversion (FWI) has become the centerpiece of velocity model building (VMB) in seismic processing in recent years. It has proven to significantly improve the velocity model, and thus the migration image, for different acquisition types and different geologic settings, including very complex environments ...

Although the resolution of a seismic image is ultimately bound by the spatial and temporal sampling of the acquired seismic data, the seismic images obtained through conventional imaging methods normally fall far short of this limit. Conventional seismic imaging methods take a piecemeal approach ...
