Keathley Canyon & Garden Banks Area - USA - 2006
Wide-azimuth acquisition technology with modern imaging deliverables
This was the first PGS survey in the Gulf of Mexico to use wide-azimuth towed streamer technology.
Exploration efforts in this area have historically focused on deep subsalt Paleogene (also known as Lower Tertiary or Wilcox) sediments. The deliverables provide clients with superior imaging products for interpretation in the Deep Water Gulf of Mexico which is great exploration interest.
PGS addresses the challenges of subsalt imaging in the Crystal area with state-of-the-art processing, including PGS hyperTomo® for velocity model building and anisotropic PSDM with an RTM algorithm.
