S-Cube delivering breakthrough Full Waveform Inversion capability

Use XWITM optimisation to gain a step-change in the resolution of your seismic velocity model


XWI Model

  • XWITM is a fully automated data-in model-out technique not relying on a conventional ray-based tomography stage in the workflow. 
  • The toolbox integrates CWI and RWI with AWITM and FWI to gain a considerable edge over codes applying industry-standard FWI alone.

Case Studies

A set of 3D field data deployments comparing the resolution achieved by AWITM relative to standard velocity model building techniques.


Chevron Data

Starting from a 1D model, AWITM was able to achieve a broadband velocity optimisation of reflection dominated data without the need for tomography.


Statoil Data

Starting from a 1D model, AWITM was able to avoid cycle-skipped miscovergence and resolve a gas anomaly overlying a North Sea target reservoir. 


Woodside Data

Starting from a featureless model, Woodside could pre-drill identify an untapped low velocity gas prospect thanks to S-Cube AWITM.

Woodside FutureLab

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