Direct hydrocarbon detection by wavelet energy absorption

WAVELET ENERGY ABSORPTION—1The quest for the reliable direct detection of hydrocarbons from seismic data is probably as old as seismic data processing and interpretation itself.Over the years a few different methods have been developed. But it seems that most, if not all, of the approaches are going along the same line of thinking.The attention is primarily focused on studying in greater and greater detail the properties of the sound-reflecting boundaries present in the earth's interior. These methods are founded on the existing theoretical conclusions and experimental observations that the strength of the sound reflection (or acoustic impedance (AI) contrast) from the boundary ...
