VISTA® V12, Full Seismic Processing

This two day course presents basic tools and advanced VISTA features required to fully process 2D and 3D datasets. Highlights include:


-          Amplitude Recovery testing and application (Tpower, ExpGain) and Amplitude Equalization (Scaling, AGC, Time Variable Scaling, SC scaling).

-          Refraction Statics picking, Editing and QC (Elevation Statics, Refraction Statics, Refraction based residual statics, True Surface and Floating Datum concepts)

-          Autocorrelations and Cross-correlations.

-          Linear Noise Attenuation (FK filtering, Radial transform filtering, Fk-Fx, Tau-Pi basic concepts and advantages).

-          Deconvolution (Surface consistent and trace by trace).

-          Time Variable Spectral Balancing.

-          Interactive Velocity Analysis (Creation of Semblance, Common Offset and Common Velocity Stack gathers); Velocity QC and display.

-          Residual Statics.

-          Pre-stack Random Noise Attenuation (THOR).

-          Stack and Post-stack migration.

-          Pre-Stack time migration PSTM

o    PSTM data preparation

o    PSTM Trace Response test.

o    PSTM Image Velocity picking (movie and panel modes).

o    PSTM Aperture definition (angle analysis).

o    Final PSTM Migration.

-          Post-Stack Random Noise Attenuation (4D-DEC, 5D-DEC).

-          Multiples attenuation using SRME and Radon (Optional topic).

-          5D Interpolation (Optional topic).

-          Converted Wave processing [Separation and Rotation of data components, PS-wave NMO, CCP Binning, Receiver Statics, etc] (Optional topic).
