Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE credits
Seismic reflection surveying is a powerful method to explore the structures of the Earth’s
crust and describe it is layers. It is also used extensively in the oil industry.
Offshore seismic profiles were acquired in southern Sweden (Skane area) for petroleum exploration
purposes, but no productive fields were discovered in that area. The seismic reflection data were
collected and processed in the 1970s.
The purpose of this thesis is to reprocess some of the seismic profiles from the 1970s with new
processing programs to improve the results and compare it with the previous results. Offshore lines
208, 206, 212 have been selected in this project because they cross each other and are close to a
borehole with sonic data. The borehole lies close to lines 208 and 212 as seen from the Skane area
Also this report can be used to introduce the reader to fundamentals of seismic data processing.
The processing was done using Claritas software by applying standard processing steps to produce
migrated stacked sections for every line as a final product.
