Land Seismic Data Processing
ION is a leader in advanced seismic processing for challenging onshore environments. We have the tools, knowledge, and global experience to take on land imaging projects including fracture detection in tight sands, shale plays, and carbonate reservoirs throughout the world.
We partner with E&P operators to help them better understand the geology of unconventional reservoirs throughout the world, including shale and tight gas plays, enabling them to maximize exploration and production of their reservoirs.
Key services we offer in the land environment include:
- Data Conditioning
- Velocity Model Building
- Azimuthal Anisotropy (AZIM) and Offset Vector Tiling (OVT) PreSTM
- AVO Inversion
- Multicomponent imaging
Unconventional Reservoir Processing Experience
Our team has extensive experience processing data from unconventional reservoirs including over 325 projects and 36,000 square miles (93,000 3D km2) in North America alone. We apply state of the art technology, including azimuthal anisotropy (AZIM) and offset vector tiling (OVT) PreSTM, to the most pressing onshore challenges.
