This presentation will demonstrate the use of image processing technology applied to seismic interpretation. Two sets of tools are available for this purpose: (1) Processes to improve the perception of geological attributes of the seismic image. (2) Processes to extract, analyze and quantify information to construct geological models. These tools reproduce the intuitive work performed by the interpreter during the elaboration of a geological model (visualization, analysis, recognition and extraction of information). Our objective is to facilitate routine tasks, and not to replace the interpreter in his specific functions. It must be noted however that the distinction between routine and special tasks is constantly evolving. In an operational environment, three criteria must be met for these tools to be accepted: reliability, speed of execution and cost effectiveness.
