Rapid Sub Salt Full Waveform Inversion - Revealing Untapped Sub Salt Prospectivity

4 passes to define the salt geometry from scratch using only FWI

S-Cube X-Wave Toolbox

X-Wave FWI Core Differentiators

A step change in automation and accuracy provided by:

  • AWI cost functions to tolerate lower quality starting models
  • RWI cost functions to extract updates from the deepest reflection points
  • EWI propagators to simulate complete physics efficiently
  • FTC cloud infrastructure to scale to high frequencies on the Spot Market 

Breakdown to show the base of salt reconstruction by FWI 

The critical step to determining accurate sub salt reflectivity

Pass 2 Start | Pass 2 Final | Pass 4 Final | Legacy

NW Shelf Australia - Blind Test

From raw data to reservoir definition - bypassing conventional workflows

Legacy streamer acquisition - no long offsets or low frequencies

FWI which cuts turnaround time and also cuts the need for new data

Model corrections leading to improved imaging in obscured zones

No ultra long offsets | No ultra low frequencies | No manual intervention
