LONDON -- Geotrace has completed an onboard data processing project for BP’s Sirt basin concession, offshore Libya.

The 3D marine survey in Libya’s Gulf of Sirt covered 17,500 sq km (6,756 sq mi). The contract split the area into four tracts and covered onboard processing, including 2D SRME and full pre-stack time migration with velocity model picking, within six weeks of last shot for each tract.

In addition to the conventional pre-stack time processed data, Geotrace processed and delivered a high resolution shallow hazard cube onboard the vessel, and conducted a multiple-azimuth test run over a subset of the full survey area.

The company used its proprietary ANSER and Diamond software systems and a high capacity PC cluster based on a Dell M600 blade cluster with 2048 CPU’s for quality control and processing services including pre-stack imaging and advanced demultiple techniques.
