IMRIII™ is a well established process for the removal of depth artefacts caused in layer cake depth conversion by structural anomalies in the overlying horizon. These depth artefacts are commonly caused by fault shadows, salt diapirs, shallow sedimentary channels, and sea floor canyons amongst others.

The IMRIII™ process has been developed from successful research into the specific causes of the depth artefacts. This understanding has led to a highly effective, and robust proprietary process which will compute and remove the depth artefact. IMRIII™ has the specific advantage over more commonly used techniques in that it does not filter the data whatsoever. As a consequence, it will reveal the ‘true structural detail’ as illustrated below.

This data includes a depth artefact. This unwanted artefact can be removed.

This is the map of the extracted artefact.  It shows no geologic structure, but a precise reproduction of the artefact.

Now after the IMR III processing, we have removed the artefact, a deterministic and precise process.
