Seismic Image Processing Ltd (SIP) has been awarded a significant research grant from the Oil and Gas Technology Centre to expand the development of eGWM.
eGWM is a leading-edge, AVA compliant, one-way equation depth migration that provides significant run-time efficiency. It overcomes limitations of ray-based solutions (e.g. Kirchhoff) and is up to 30 times faster than RTM.
"eGWM represents a step change in depth imaging. We firmly believe it will replace Kirchhoff and become the standard choice for imaging and fluid studies. We welcome this funding from OGTC and the confidence in our technology".
-Jagat Deo, CEO
