Turkish Petroleum Expands its Paradigm Software Portfolio with Reverse Time Migration

The acquisition will help maintain the company’s processing facility as a center of excellence for seismic processing in the region.
(HOUSTON: March 23, 2015) Paradigm® ( today announced that Turkish Petroleum (TP), the national oil company of the Republic of Turkey and a long-time Paradigm customer, has added Paradigm Reverse Time Migration (RTM) to its product portfolio. The Reverse Time Migration is often the imaging solution of choice in subsurface areas characterized by complex geology and complementary complex wave propagation phenomena. This selection complements other seismic imaging solutions from Paradigm used by TP.

“We were very impressed by the high quality of the seismic images attained using the Paradigm Reverse Time Migration, as well as by its ease of use”, said Mehmet Mutafcılar, Data Processing Manager of TP.  “We have been using Paradigm solutions for many years in our data processing center, and we trust its technology.  We have great confidence that Paradigm RTM will give us the same high quality results as the rest of our Paradigm products.”

Paradigm RTM is a preferred solution for imaging seismic data in areas of complex wave phenomena. It easily handles the most severe combinations of structural dip with high velocity contrast that are found in many of TP’s exploration basins.   

“For close to 30 years, TP has been an important user of our processing and imaging solutions,” said Edip Baysal, Paradigm chief geophysicist and one of the inventors of Reverse Time Migration.  “We’re pleased that we were able to provide them with an optimal solution for their complex imaging challenges, and for validating velocity models with its forward modeling capability.”
