PDO Multiple Attenuation Technique: Potential Business Impacts

M. Retailleau1, H. Farran2, J. Shorter2, and B. Michels2



PDO (Petroleum Development Oman) has been exploring for more than 50 years in Block 6 in Oman but for the last 10 years exploration activity in the South Oman Eastern Flank area has been minimal due to the low exploration success rate . The Land 3D seismic data acquired over the past 30 years is heavily contaminated by sub-horizontal high energy multiples which mask the (acoustically weaker) primary targets. Without a step change in seismic image quality, exploration will not be able to pursue the potential in this very rich oil province.
