The LCT-DSite Link
LCT and Jason Geosystems propose optimum depth-velocity modelling through the synthesis of geophysical and geological data.
Jason Geosystems and LCT recently developed a close software link between Jason's T-D conversion tool DSite and LCT's gravity and magnetics software. This link makes it possible to integrate a whole range of different data like time interpretations from seismic data, stacking velocities, well tops, pre-stack data, well velocities, velocity gradients, density logs, gravity and magnetic data and geological information into one optimum depth-velocity model.
Depth-velocity models generated in DSite can be compared and, if necessary, updated using gravity and magnetic data in LCT. For depth models generated in LCT, quality control and model updates are carried out in DSite by means of offset raytracing.
A clear benefit of combining these distinct modelling methods is the ability to cope with complex plays like salt domes and thrusts. Furthermore, the resulting, high quality depth-velocity model is the ideal starting point for expensive pre-stack depth migration.
