Well Tie for Broadband Seismic Data

March 28, 2017

Written by: Ehsan Naeini, James Gunning, and Roy White


The seismic industry is increasingly acquiring broadband data in order to reap the benefits of extra low- and high-frequency contents. At the low end, as the sharp lowcut decay gets closer to zero frequency, it becomes harder for a well tie to estimate the low-frequency response correctly. The fundamental difficulty is that well logs are too short to allow accurate estimation of the long-period content of the data. Three distinctive techniques, namely parametric constant phase, frequency-domain least squares with multi-tapering, and Bayesian time domain with broadband priors, are introduced in this paper to provide a robust solution to the wavelet estimation problem for broadband seismic data.
