Land seismic technology is advancing rapidly on many fronts. There are challenges in assimilating all the changes and new opportunities. A technical viewpoint may be to analyse each of the component technologies, both acquisition and processing, on their separate merits, but how are we to put it all together in the most technically effective manner, while maintaining cost-effectiveness and, ideally, reducing the overall time to which business decisions are made from the data? Technical development and tighter integration across the full design-to-interpretation workflow should go hand-in-hand and the more we improve our technical capabilities in multiple areas, the greater the imperative to act to integrate those technologies for maximum gain. The presentation will discuss WesternGeco’s several years of practical experience with integrated land seismic acquisition and processing technology delivering high-density, broadband full-azimuth data as a key enabler for improved reservoir characterisation.
