AVO Analysis & Modeling
The HRS-9 AVO module is used for pre-stack seismic analysis and reservoir reconnaissance work. Within the module are the tools necessary to condition pre-stack seismic data to produce optimum attribute volumes, along with the cross-plotting and interpretation functions necessary to locate AVO anomalies, as well as AVO modeling tools for calibration.
Benefits of the AVO Module:
- Provides a single comprehensive module for data conditioning, attribute calculation and analysis
- High-grades pre-stack seismic data for inversions
- Calibrates seismic data with model data
- Enables simple navigation and comparison of multiple attribute volumes with seismic gathers
Seismic Data Conditioning
The fundamental assumption made in AVO studies is that the pre-stack data has been optimally processed. This means that the data is noise-free, with preserved amplitudes and correct time positioning for the angle range being studied. The AVO module in Hampson-Russell offers data conditioning tools needed to prepare data for attribute analysis.
AVO Attribute Volume Calculation
Once the amplitudes observed in the pre-stack data are stable and robust, AVO attributes can be calculated as volumes and maps.
