Rio - Field Acquisition QC and Data Management Service

Rio, an integrated service and software solution, helps ensure a timely and accurate seismic dataset is produced from any land or ocean bottom seismic acquisition project. With Rio, field data is QC’d during acquisition and corrected immediately. Rio improves the quality of seismic data coming out of the field, while reducing the time spent preparing data for processing.

Rio speeds up the data processing workflow by making seismic data ready for processing faster. Rio finds corrupted or duplicate field data. It efficiently finds and fixes problems with source, receiver, and patch positioning. Rio analysts can generate near surface models for calculating refraction or tomography. Finally, Rio can be used to generate a true, processing-ready seismic data set with correct geometry and statics in the trace headers with the data sorted into any desired gather type in a variety of output formats.

Benefits of Rio

  • Assures data integrity thorough field-level quality control, analysis and correction
  • Improves the quality of SEGY data coming out of the field
  • Shortens cycle time for data processing

In-field Geometry QC Technology

Currently offered as a service, Rio consists of three components: hardware, software, and trained personnel. Using specialized software, the technician implements quality controls at various intervals throughout the acquisition. Rio locates corrupt or duplicate field data, and fixes problems with source, receiver and patch positioning. Analysts can generate near surface models for calculating refraction statics or refraction tomography. Finally, Rio can be used to generate a true, processing-ready seismic data set with the correct geometry and statics.
