Nasser Bani Hassan,Senior Geophysicist at ERCE, presented results of a seismic inversion generated using cutting-edge seismic technology at the London Petrophysical Society technical conference on 27th September 2018. His talk was entitled 'Incorporating FWI velocity in simulated annealing based acoustic impedance inversion - Jansz gas field case study'.

In this work, he introduced a high quality low frequency component from data driven  Extended waveform inversion (XWI) velocities as an alternative to the conventional Low frequency component (LFC) models in absolute impedance solutions that highly correlates blind well data. The outcome of this study is the construction of seismic products that can accurately characterise petrophysical attributes of the rock layers away from well control. This study was conducted in collaboration with S-Cube, the company that constructed the FWI velocity model.

Having decades of experience in the quantitative interpretation, ERCE provides high-quality, world-class deterministic and statistical impedance inversion services in many petroleum basins across the world. Contact us for more information about our geophysics services and how they can be customised to provide solutions on your projects.

The London Petrophysical Society (LPS) are the local chapter of the SPWLA and hold regular evening meetings at the Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly in London. 

The LPS exists to promote for the public benefit education and knowledge in the scientific and technical aspects of formation evaluation. This is done through meetings and seminars, University student support grants, Petrophysics Open Days and other educational support.

ERCE is proud to sponsor the LPS.

S-Cube is an industry-leading technology company dedicated to advancing the Full Waveform Inversion (FWI) solution to the problem of extracting the velocity model from seismic survey field data in order to:

  • reduce subsurface risk
  • improve appraisal performance
  • enhance hydrocarbon recovery

The S-Cube team has extensive experience in the area of developing large-scale parallel optimisation algorithms, having been key players in the theoretical and practical development of FWI, and are internationally recognised as leaders in the field.
