Chapter 7: A Processing Comparison

January 01, 1993


AVO exploration leading to the discovery of a field is described in this case history. Processing of the subtle amplitude response at the prospect using three different processing streams led to different results.

Case history lessons
  • Field analogs can determine the type and strength of the AVO anomaly expected at a prospect in the same trend.

  • AVO anomalies that are not strongly developed can be changed and even eliminated by variations in the processing stream.

  • Good communication between the processor and interpreter is needed to incorporate acquisition and processing information into AVO interpretation.

  • Dip filters applied to CMP gathers to remove multiples can change relative amplitudes.
