Abstract

Ray-tracing 3D geologic earth models reduces the risk of seismic exploration by providing quantitative measures to assist 3D survey design. Optimized survey geometries achieve balance between cost and illumination capability based upon known prospect data. The cost of performing the modeling work is minimal and cycle time is rapid. Post-acquisition studies provide additional benefit in verification of amplitude and AVO anomalies, target oriented data selection, as well as a more intimate understanding of the prospect.
