Heloise Bloxsom Lynn; Overlap! OTC 2000 and the 9th International Workshop on Seismic Anisotropy—16 years in the making and a cast of thousands. The Leading Edge ; 19 (8): 874–876. doi: https://doi.org/10.1190/1.1438731
After 20 years of working with seismic anisotropy and multicomponent reflection data (and attending 16 years of workshops on seismic anisotropy), I am convinced that 2000 is the watershed year!
Now, many geophysicists know that:
Various and sundry companies have claimed over the years that they have taken advantage of these phenomena and that their “correct” use of anisotropy and/or multicomponent data has improved the efficiency of their exploration and development. But this is the first year that a major oil company, Elf, supported its claim by releasing reserves estimated with the use of anisotropy and the change in reserves...
