Traditional practice separates seismic data processing and further interpretation. However the most efficient processing methods utilize a-priori information about medium to explore.

2 Medium model definition Geometry of the model is defined as a set of points laying on sectionally smooth bounds. For next calculations smooth bounds are approximated by parametric cubic splines which allows to describe ambiguous bounds. The criteria of approximation is a curvature restriction. The bound is defined as a set of points on the spline between special end points – break points or another bound intersection. Maximum deviation of the chord between two consequent points from the spline is limited by preset value. Physical parameters of the model are defined on the bounds. The pressure, shear wave velocity and density are interpolated between bounds producing gradients.

3 Observation system For a case study the observation system with non-straight well and two shot points was defined. Distance between receivers in the well is 20 meters. Both shot points are located with offset 2500 meters.

4 Raytracing in gradient medium with sectionally smooth bounds The method of raytracing from arbitrary point in arbitrary direction was developed for the considered model. In general velocity gradient is not a constant so raytracing is performed step by step. Direction and length of a step is set according to parameters of the medium in origin point. The step defines chord H i of a circle which is a true ray trajectory. The first step is made along the chord which has F angle to the ray direction. The F value is a parameter of the method and it defines accuracy of a solution. The less F value is the better the chord fits the circle. A chord value are calculated by given formula:, where: (i=0,1,….N) - origin point of the i-th chord - origin point of the i-th chord - pressure wave velocity - pressure wave velocity - absolute value of velocity gradient - absolute value of velocity gradient - direction of the tangent to ray trajectory - direction of the tangent to ray trajectory - direction of the velocity gradient - direction of the velocity gradient

5 From the law of tangential component invariance: its easy to represent orthogonal component of refraction vector of the reflected/refracted ray: Thus we have complete vector of wave refraction (and the ray direction) just after bound instersection. Refraction-reflection effects are considered at a chord intersection with a bound by the following algorithm: Refraction-reflection effects are considered at a chord intersection with a bound by the following algorithm: A tangent to the bound in intersection point is drawn. Then the tangential component of refraction vector of incoming ray with defined type is calculated. This component is used for calculation of orthogonal component of refraction vector of outgoing reflected or refracted (converted or non-converted) ray. A tangent to the bound in intersection point is drawn. Then the tangential component of refraction vector of incoming ray with defined type is calculated. This component is used for calculation of orthogonal component of refraction vector of outgoing reflected or refracted (converted or non-converted) ray. Refraction vector of incoming ray of wave type and vector of tangent Refraction vector of incoming ray of wave type and vector of tangent to the bound in intersection point and orthogonal vector of the bound. Lets separate refraction vector of incoming ray to the orthogonal and tangential components: Lets separate refraction vector of incoming ray to the orthogonal and tangential components:

6 Calculation of model wave fields Model wave field was calculated by the method of finite differences on the grid with 2m step. The source was calculated analytically in the 100m radius. High-frequency noise on the grid was no more than 10% in the frequency range – 125Hz. Inverse wave scattering on model boundaries was no more then 0.5%.

7 Calculation of the wave parameters To calculate parameters of the wave with given type, its necessary to determine the source angle of the ray which hits exact receiver. In case of all such rays are found its possible to calculate travelling time, amplitude and polarization of the wave in the receiver. Thus the method allows to obtain amplitudes, polarization parameters and arrival times for every type of the wave. Example of reflected wave raytracing

9 To illustrate accuracy of polarization parameters calculation, initial XYZ field was rotated to the polarization of converted transferred PS wave from the first bound: R component P component

10 Amplitudes of the direct wave calculated by the ray-tracing (red) and finite difference (green) methods.

11 Wave detection and subtraction When hodograph and polarization parameters of the wave are known, its possible to subtract it from initial wave field without influence of the interference effects. Thus, by the sequential wave subtraction in the order of amplitudes decreasing, its possible to reach full wave field analysis up to multiple reflection/refraction ray paths.
