We demonstrate 3D high-resolution seismic modeling and RTM imaging using velocities derived from the Eldfisk geologic model. Using calibration parameters for chalk, the Differential Effective Medium (DEM) method is used to derive P- and S-wave velocities from the imported porosity model. Once the velocity models are constructed, we run 3D finite-difference modeling followed by RTM imaging focused on the reservoir characterization and advanced acquisition design over the seismically obscured area (SOA) on Eldfisk.
