Title: Introduction to Seismic Imaging in Oil and Gas Exploration
Global oil and gas industry has a bright future even in the backdrop of uncertainty and volatility in the market. There is everlasting need of energy demand in the light of prosperity and industrialism. The oil and gas follows a Petroleum System where the oil is generated from organic matter, migrates to the structure where is trapped inside a reservoir. Seismic imaging is the most important and crucial step in recovering the geology with hydrocarbon (See Fig 1) from the seismic response.
