TUNBRIDGE WELLS, UKShearwater GeoServices has supplied a 3D fasttrack pre-stack depth migration (PreSDM) product for Edison International from a new 3D SHarp broadband dataset in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Simon Telfer, VP Processing and Imaging at Shearwater, said: “Edison required a PreSDM volume within weeks of completing the 3D acquisition. Our Onboard Processing and Depth Imaging groups worked closely to draw up a plan and deliver…

“We delivered to Edison a full 3D pre-stack depth migration product, including broadband processing and iterative model-building in just over four weeks from the final acquired shot record.”

Bruno Garcea, Seismic Supervisor of Edison’s Egypt branch, said: “Depth imaging and broadband technology are key elements to achieve a better seismic image of subsalt plays in the Eastern Mediterranean. So, we required, for the first time, to obtain a quick depth volume immediately after acquisition.”

Davide di Biase, Exploration Manager MENA Area of Edison, added: “Early interpretation, through an accelerated turnaround of seismic processing, is important factor to better planning and targeting exploration projects.”
