In a nutshell, SpotLight provides reservoir/production engineers with a dynamic detection of subsurface changes on strategic subsurface areas (spots*) using seismic measurement (without any limitations regarding distance from wells). SpotLight’s innovation relies on the survey design and data processing, so that the acquisition is easy and requires standard equipment.

*a spot corresponds to a 50 – 300m in lateral direction and 5 – 30m as vertical resolution area (which may vary with the local geology).

A few years back we started working together. One survey design done added to 7 months of monitoring in the field, well, the loop is closed : proud to present our 1st scientific paper at #EAGE2020. A warm thank you to our very 1st trusted partner who jumped onboard !
