GX Technology introduces broadband results from conventional seismic streamers

HOUSTON – The ION Geophysical Corp. (NYSE: IO) data processing group, GX Technology, has introduced a seismic data processing technology to deliver broadband results for conventional “flat” streamer data.

Named “WiBand,” the technology produces high-resolution images that help make more accurate and reliable technical decisions. WiBand tackles both the source and receiver ghosts to recover full-spectrum data acquired using conventional towed streamers.

Source and receiver notches in the frequency spectrum resulting from free surface reflections, or “ghosts,” traditionally limit resolution in the marine environment. WiBand delivers increased structural and stratigraphic detail and has the potential for advanced processing with enhanced low frequencies.

“The unique combination of algorithms and workflows offered by WiBand processing allow our clients to get broad bandwidth results from conventional streamer data,” says Nick Bernitsas, senior VP, GX Technology. “WiBand offers a tremendous opportunity to improve image quality by reprocessing legacy data or by application to new acquisition, as well as to enhance the value of our GeoVentures marine offerings.”
