6. Seismic Spectral Blueing (SSB)

Observed behaviour of reflectivity data obtained from wells shows that, in a global sense, the higher the frequencies the higher the amplitude. We refer to this as the spectrum being blued. During the processing of seismic data the amplitudes are often whitened. Spectral shaping of seismic data using SSB can enhance resolution without boosting noise to an unacceptable level.

SSB sections are usually easier to interpret and reveal more information about the subsurface. Small scale faulting, not seen on the original section, is often observed. Such additional information can be useful during well planning. SSB is rapid, easy to use, inexpensive, robust and does not require expert users. SSB seamlessly connects with third party seismic and well data repositories (including SeisWorks, OpenWorks, GeoFrame and OpendTect) using our client/server technology. This allows SSB analysis, operator design and processing to be performed without separately importing or exporting data.
