SEAM Phase I: Challenges of Subsalt Imaging in Tertiary Basins, with Emphasis on Deepwater Gulf of Mexico has been a resounding success! Research gathered from Phase I is already being put to use in additional research, having generated 11 SEAM-related Expanded Abstracts from the 2011 SEG Annual Meeting.

Primary goals and accomplishments of SEAM Phase I:

  • The numerical SEAM Earth Model, representative of a 60-block area of the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. This model has been constructed in a form that easily enables extension to other complex imaging challenges by adding the rock properties necessary for elastic, nonseismic, anisotropic, and viscoelastic.
  • Simulation of approximately 65,000 shot records, containing as many as 450,000 traces each, for an acoustic dataset.
  • Development and adoption of a data compression scheme.
  • Development of multiple "classic" data subsets for broad usage by the global research and academic communities.
  • The initiation of complementary geophysical simulations (e.g., CSEM, gravity, and magnetic modeling) over the SEAM Earth Model.
  • Establishment of a process for efficient storage and distribution of the data and the "classic" datasets.
