Fugro Seismic Imaging uses Paradigm's SKUA for GOM subsalt modelling

Friday, August 24, 2012

Fugro Seismic Imaging, a seismic processing provider, has decided to use Paradigm's "SKUA" system for 3D modelling under salt bodies in the Gulf of Mexico.

Fugro will use the technology to build detailed velocity models for the Gulf of Mexico.

'With SKUA, we can build detailed velocity models more quickly in areas such as the Gulf of Mexico, while providing details that were not achievable with prior technologies,' said Steve Cole, chief geophysicist for Fugro Seismic Imaging.

'Accurate depth mapping below salt is one example of the benefits of SKUA and is vital for the assessment of potential oil and gas prospects.'
'SKUA's capacity to properly handle salt-sediment interfaces, fault-sediment interfaces, and to incorporate stratigraphic velocity detail provides geophysicists a tool to generate 'sealed' velocity models for both exploration and development with substantive improvements in turnaround time," says Duane Dopkin, executive vice president for Technology at Paradigm.
