Prestack Data Enhancement toolkit

Prestack Data Enhancement toolkit

The Sharp Reflections PRO toolkit, built for high-performance computing, brings processing professionals and interpreters together to seamlessly QC and condition huge volumes of seismic data for specific interpretation purposes.

The PRO processing tools operate on full prestack gathers and on stacks, and let you quickly and flexibly optimize the reliability of your full-area seismic data—data that will be used throughout the life of the reservoir. No need to limit your working area.

Process, condition and QC full-fidelity prestack or poststack seismic data, and integrate with advanced interpretation tools, all on a single HPC-powered platform.

 

Working on a single software platform that integrates inversion, azimuthal or 4D time-lapse data, you have the power to run multiple conditioning iterations, and see for yourself the impact on your final results, in minutes or hours rather than days or weeks.

Extract and explore the amplitude on any event throughout the processing workflow, without compromise. Link stacks, full-fold gathers and map viewers, and explore all angles of new prospects. In development and producing fields, calibrate to new well data and remove noise on repeat seismic surveys to track fluid movement with greater precision.

Unlocking the value of multi-dimensional data

Sharp Reflections offers a suite of interactive tools on a single platform, coupled with a unique, flexible multidimensional data model powered by high-performance computing (HPC). The model collects data into single objects for exceptionally fast multidimensional data computations and interactions.

How does our unique HPC engine help you optimize the reliability of your seismic data?

The built-in power of HPC takes the PRO toolkit well beyond a standalone processing tool.

Post-migration conditioning is no longer a separate, invisible process for final users, including quantitative interpreters and reservoir engineers. Sharp Reflections offers an integrated toolkit that allows everyone to see the impact of conditioning on the final attributes. With this interaction, end users can build the optimal conditioning sequence for their specific project. All algorithms have been extended to azimuthal (wide azimuth datasets), time-lapse data, onshore and offshore, providing a smooth experience, whatever the challenge. In addition, quality control baselining lets you check terabytes of full-area data at any stage, before and after conditioning. 

Generate complex processing workflows and automate execution

Make repetitive tasks easy and efficient. When exploring a huge dataset, you want to try different parameters, and “what if” scenarios. The workflow manager makes it easy to set up and repeat tasks.

Try, try again—until you are satisfied that you have the best results.

Dive into the details

Sharp Reflections software equips users to explore complex, multidimensional data volumes interactively using five toolkits. Users move smoothly across the entire spectrum of workflows, from data processing and conditioning through to 4D time-lapse interpretation, all on one platform.

All the data for the best decisions

Sharp Reflections turns huge datasets into assets instead of roadblocks. Our software helps clients explore their seismic data—every terabyte—to develop deeper, purer views of their reservoirs.

Sharp Reflections is the industry’s only software platform built on a powerful compute and display engine designed specifically for high-performance computing (HPC), on premises or in the cloud.

Our integrated platform enables users to start analyzing and interpreting seismic data as soon as processing begins. No information is wasted as users reduce uncertainty and fine tune their reservoir characterization to help achieve trustable exploration, drilling and production decisions.
