Proper elimination of surface related multiples is an important -and often necessary step - in processing marine seismic data. Despite the wide variety of methods and algorithms for Surface Related Multiple Elimination (SRME), the making of a 3D SRME algorithm that would satisfy a sequence of standards remains to be a challenge. In our poster, we demostrate Saudi Aramco experience in running SRME algorithm on Red Sea data, using High Performance and Grid Computing resources. Our results show that SRME is a feasible algorithm when considering the right resoureces and proper HPC designs.
