PreStack Pro – Data conditioning for quantitative interpretation

PreStack Pro – Data conditioning for quantitative interpretation 

Intermediate | 4 half day | Online | Hands-on


In this course you will experience the benefits of using a high-performance computing (HPC) setup to quickly test, iterate and QC data. In hands-on exercises you will learn how you can perform QC techniques at every step to tell you if you are moving in the right direction and improving the data. You will use the complete toolkit to QC, process and analyze seismic amplitudes straight from imaged gathers, all the time considering the AVA based analysis and/or prestack inversion that may follow in a QI study.

This is an online hands-on course where you will be working with the application on a North Sea data set.

Session 1
  • Introduction to the Johan Sverdrup dataset
  • Prestack synthetic vs seismic
  • Seismic QC
  • Gather flattening using RMO
Session 2
  • RMO (continued)
  • Impact on health checks
  • Commonly used conditioning workflows
  • Gather flattening using trim statics
Session 3
  • Coherent noise attenuation
  • Impact on health checks
  • Q filters
Session 4
  • Random noise attenuation
  • Spectral balancing
  • Impact on health checks

Exploration and production geoscientists, seismic interpreters, QI geophysicists, processing geophysicists.

  • Understanding the overarching processing ideology in PreStack Pro
  • Quantitatively validation of data
  • Implementation of commonly used algorithms
  • Creating and editing workflows
  • Ensuring amplitude integrity which is key to seismic reservoir characterization

We recommend that users with no or limited experience in PreStack Pro complete the PreStack Pro Getting started course.

General knowledge of geophysics, seismic interpretation and rock physics is recommended.
