ProMAX® VSP Vertical Seismic Profile Software
Description | Features | System Requirements
ProMAX® VSP software is a seismic data processing system that allows easy processing and quality control of near, offset, walkaway and reverse vertical seismic profile data.
VSPs may be recorded for a variety of reasons. The software is flexible enough to handle boreholes of any shape, combined with any number of sources or receivers in a radial geometry.
ProMAX VSP tools provide comprehensive quality control capabilities for both geometry specification and trace data processing, including 2D graphs and 3D crossplots. It also offers an interactive processing environment that allows for thorough testing and rapid parameter selection.
Flexibility to handle myriad problems
Over 500 available processes provide the flexibility to handle all of the organizational and geophysical problems that may surface for VSP data processing
Process seismic data at borehole
Provides comprehensive QC capabilities for both geometry specification and trace data processing, including 2D graphs or 3D crossplots
Provides an interactive processing environment that allows for thorough testing and rapid parameter selection
Create optimum output
Many different wavefield separation techniques can be independently tested – the best results can be compared to select the optimum output.
Final products like the corridor stack can be inserted into surface seismic sections or compared to synthetic seismic traces generated from well logs. VSP-CDP transform is easily generated to present a high-resolution image of the reflectors near the borehole.
VSP data are typically recorded using multi-component recording where there are vertically and horizontally oriented receivers. The horizontal phones may be used for geophone rotation or re-orientation analysis as well as for working with horizontally oriented shear waves.
Hodogram analysis are used to determine the actual orientation of the horizontal phones as the data were recorded as well as having the capability to rebuild the data as if the receivers were at a constant azimuth. This is accomplished either in batch or by using the interactive hodogram analysis tool.
Allows you to generate synthetic VSPs recorded through velocity models using different geometries and shot and borehole placement. This technique can be used to help understand events on recorded VSPs and to help plan actual VSP projects.
