In this presentation we examine the benefits of full-cycle iterative processing and its impact on both quality and turnaround using a North Sea 4D case study. We show that by providing interpretation ready volumes from an early stage of processing, and at various stages during subsequent processing, we reduce risk and improve quality in a cost neutral approach. We also show that these early deliverables can potentially be used to make business decisions ahead of the delivery of final products from processing.
