AVO and Seismic Attribute Services - Integrated Services

RSI offers its clients a full complement of prestack (AVO and inversion) and poststack (Hilbert Transform) seismic attributes in Attrib3D®. AVO and seismic attributes are generated to derive seismic facies, used in areas without well control where seismic inversion isn't feasible and are used to compliment seismic inversion results.

The majority of the seismic attributes listed below were developed at RSI by Dr. M. Turhan Taner as part of the Seismic Attributes Consortium and for a full description of each attribute and include their projected use in interpretation, please refer to Attributes Revisited.
