Interactive Imaging (aka Scenario Testing or Localized Imaging) is a proprietary Pre-stack Depth Migration Workflow developed by In-Depth.
Even when imagers do what they can to deliver the best possible results, uncertainties can arise when trying to decide between multiple possible geological scenarios. With In-Depth’s Interactive Imaging workflow, your company can eliminate some of the guesswork from the equation. Our Interactive Imaging allows clients to draw several scenario models and quickly turn them into depth images, allowing interpreters to evaluate the possible scenarios with much more certainty.
Here we show a simple real data example where there is a subsalt event in the left panel that suspiciously bends upward in the highlighted area. Due to the lack of angle coverage under the massive salt bodies, this area is most likely poorly imaged. To verify this suspicion, you can create a few possible scenarios and run In-Depth’s Interactive Imaging workflow. The right panel displays a properly imaged area produced by Interactive Imaging using the scenario models.
To further verify this, you can also QC (quality control) the PSDM gathers, as shown below. On the left panel, we showed the offset image gathers that correspond to the image on the upper left, and the right below we showed that correspond to the image on the upper right. Clearly, the scenario on the right is more likely to be true than the one on the left.
