Swift Energy deploys Prima in-house processing

TGS-Imaging’s seismic processing package part of Linux cluster-based turnkey solution.

Houston-based Swift Energy has bought a full-suite, corporate-level license for the Prima seismic processing package from TGS-Nopec’s TGS Imaging unit. The complete software package includes interpretation, standard processing, gather conditioning and advanced AVO analysis and processing modules. The Prima package is a component of a TGS Imaging turnkey seismic processing solution that includes a high capacity Linux cluster.


Scott Scholz, Geophysical Special Projects Coordinator at Swift Energy said, ‘As a long-time user of Prima, it made sense to implement the same advanced data processing technology at our company that TGS uses daily to process their own seismics. Our decision was due largely to Prima’s state of the art algorithms, ease of use and customer support criteria.’


Richard Barren, TGS Imaging Manager Sales & Marketing, added, ‘Swift’s adoption of Prima’s advanced processing technology means that it is now running our top of the range pre-stack migration package in house’. Last year TGS used Prima to perform prestack time and depth migration of its 20,000 square kilometers Gulf of Mexico non exclusive dataset.
