Shearwater GeoServices has signed a contract to join the Full Wave consortium as a late participant.
The 3D anisotropic FWI code will be incorporated into Shearwater’s OpenCPS seismic processing software for use in advanced model building and depth imaging, the company explained.
The OpenCPS FWI interface will be made available to Imperial College London and oil company participants within the consortium.
Professor Mike Warner of Imperial College said: “We are pleased to have another industry partner join our consortium. The FWI interface and other tools provided by OpenCPS will greatly enhance our ability to test and develop the FWI more efficiently.”
Gareth Williams, chief geophysicist of Shearwater added: “Offering 3D FWI as a service is the next step in our continuing progress towards providing the highest imaging technology to our clients.”
