Sterling’s depth solutions provide a timely, cost-effective method for enhancing precision drilling and geo-steering of long lateral wells. Optimizing drilling in unconventional reservoirs requires both an accurate and high resolution image in depth.

Depth Imaging Services

Our robust Pre-stack Depth Imaging Services, utilizing proprietary reflection tomography coupled with state-of-the-art Tsunami™ Kirchhoff based depth imaging tools will maximize your investment and enhance drilling performance.

 With migration from surface, sophisticated anti-aliasing, and fast runtimes utilizing our parallel clusters, we are able to leverage Sterling’s precise time processing to produce superior depth images. Enhanced algorithm capabilities improve phase stability, tuning and thus increase reservoir resolution. Our “data driven” solution leads to more geologic velocity models with higher spatial resolution.
