S-Cube delivering breakthrough Full Waveform Inversion capability

Use XWI to gain a step-change in the resolution of your velocity model

XWI

XWI Model

  • XWI is a fully automated data-in model-out technique - surpassing conventional processing and conventional FWI for velocity model building. 
  • XWI integrates AWITM, ATV and RWI with FWI to gain a considerable edge over codes applying industry-standard FWI alone.

Case Studies

A set of examples requiring XWI where industry-leading FWI alone gives a spurious result. 

Chevron

Chevron XWI

Starting from a 1D model, XWI was able to achieve a broad-band inversion of reflection dominated data without the need for tomography.

Statoil

Statoil AWI

Starting from a 1D model, AWITM was able to avoid cycle-skipping and fully characterise a gas cloud overlying the North Sea field. 

Woodside

Woodside AWI

Starting from a featureless model, Woodside could successfully identify a new low velocity gas prospect thanks to S-Cube AWITM.

Woodside FutureLab

Woodside discusses S-Cube FWI technology and its application in Myanmar.
