Paradigm has opened a seismic center in Mumbai, India, dedicated to dealing with the challenges associated with processing, imaging, interpreting, and modeling of multi-line 2D seismic surveys.
The center is part of the geoscience service business offered by Paradigm for oil and gas exploration.
Services include full azimuth seismic imaging and characterization, diffraction imaging, seismic inversion, velocity modeling, structural modeling, facies modeling, fracture modeling, pore pressure prediction, model uncertainty, well log management and other projects that require deeper insights into the subsurface.
According to Paradigm, although high density 3D seismic data offers orders of magnitude of subsurface insights for both exploration and field development, 2D seismic data is still routinely used for field and basin reconnaissance where operational complexity makes it impractical or too costly to deploy 3D seismic methods.
The sparseness of multi-line seismic surveys requires special skills, experience, and software to generate a 3D perspective of the subsurface from spatially-limited data.
“With its 3D perspective of 2D seismic data, Paradigm has a huge advantage in providing operators with more value from multi-line 2D seismic surveys,” said Shiv Singh, VP of geoscience services at Paradigm.
“The combination of our Echos, GeoDepth, SKU-GOCAD and SeisEarth solutions provides the ideal processing, imaging, interpretation, and modeling platform to support the challenges of the multi-line 2D seismic method. By carrying out these processes in a 3D setting, the resultant model ambiguities and uncertainties are reduced, line ties guaranteed, and well ties dramatically improved,” he said.
