Seismic Feature Enhancement

A powerful flat-spot utility

The ARK CLS Seismic Feature Enhancement plugin is a flat-spot utility that enhances the signal of consistent flat events and reduces the "noise" of the channel reflections.


Features

  • A powerful flat-spot utility that enhances the signal of consistent flat events and reduces the "noise" of the channel reflections
  • Seismic resolution of fluid contacts within potential reservoirs is a key risk-reducing factor in exploration prospects
  • Occasionally, seismic data clearly resolves obvious fluid contacts prior to drilling
  • Frequently though, subtle flat spots are only recognised after discovery
  • Recognising flat spots at an earlier stage enhances the interpretation and reduces the risk of dry holes
  • A technique has been developed and tested to enhance the signal of flat events within 3D seismic volumes
  • The technique involves steering a traverse down a recognised channel axis
  • The signal to noise of flat events is improved by the square root of the number of relevant input traces
  • SFE allows explorationists on their own workstations to build an enhanced seismic traverse by specifying a swath of data from a 3D survey
  • This data may then be processed using various control parameters supplied by the explorationist, who can then invoke the SFE traverse-building algorithm in the program and create the flat spot enhanced traverse.
