Onshore Croatia Reprocessing

Spectrum’s Egyptian joint-venture, Spectrum-Geopex have many years of experience in processing land seismic data. Their attention to detail and expertise enabled this successful seismic reprocessing project to be delivered to Spectrum’s Multi-Client department in time for the 1st Croatia Onshore Licensing Round.

The survey consists of over 11,500 km of mixed Vibroseis & dynamite data from over 22 different vintages, dating from the 1970’s through to the 1990’s.

Key challenges to this project:
• Building correct geometries from incomplete or erroneous observers reports
• Tying and matching all the different surveys
• Building a unified 3D static model
• Detailed noise suppression which was assessed on a line by line basis
• Horizon consistent velocity picking , using a smooth 3D field

Geological input and QC was supplied by Spectrum’s Geoscience group throughout the processing stages.
