PeruPetro Trujillo 98-ON-05
complex tectonics, fault plane reflections, subtle fault details
This example is from PeruPetro’s Trujillo project. Although it is mid-90’s acquisition and processing, the data quality is excellent.
The main feature in this example are the highly detailed subtle faults that would be either missed or dismissed as noise trains on greyscale images.
PeruPetro Trujillo Line 98-05
This was the line that started my research into visualization. The fine scale fault details got my attention because I had dismissed them as noise trains on the greyscale images.
Fine Scale Subtle Faulting
Observe the subtle interbed faults on the StratiScape image. They are important if you have to drill through them but they would likely be missed or dismissed on the greyscale image.
Dual Polarity Comparison
Note how distinct the fault plane reflections are on the dual polarity image. The darker green amplitudes are negative polarity events.
The colors are the same on both images. The comparison highlights how inefficient variable density displays are at imaging complex amplitudes.
Fault Plane Reflections
What impresses me about this set of images is the fault plane reflection detail that you can observe on the StratiScape image.
We are located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and are on Mountain Standard Time.
