Georgian Project Re-interpretation of the Mukhiani-1 seismic data supported by the Vertical Seismic Profile ("VSP") results has indicated that the well encountered previously unrecognized faults that led to possible basement being encountered far earlier than predicted.
The well also produced a high resolution, three-dimensional vertical seismic profile survey that should help researchers pinpoint the geological strata that identifies the presence of hydrate in the area.
In addition, GXT has implemented RTM for wide-azimuth (WAZ) acquisition geometries, on full-wave (multicomponent) imaging projects, in the presence of anisotropy, and as part of vertical seismic profiles (VSPs).
Data obtained from the vertical seismic profile recently run in the well indicates that there is a seismic reflector some 300 metres (984 feet) below the current depth of the well which may be the primary target.
