Seismic-based Earth model is a significant source for decision making for both exploration and appraisal stages of global exploration and production (E&P) workflow. Uncertainty analysis of seismic imaging process provides model-based estimates of possibility ranges (lateral risk indicators) for impacts on exploration objects. The paper discusses a technique for geological and drilling object’s optimization based on tomography-driven seismic uncertainty analysis
