VelCube 3D Velocity (GOM) Database

View VelCube Version V Maps

VelCube3 is a 3D velocity database covering the Gulf of Mexico Continental Shelf. The database consists of a series of velocity layers beginning at 200 milliseconds, and incrementing in 100 millisecond steps down to 13000 milliseconds. Each layer consists of a series of 0.5 x 0.5 mile grid nodes. VelCube was created using over 11,000 check-shot surveys and compaction rate predictor locations. Independant tests have shown VelCube to be the most accurate earth velocity model available today.

VelCube makes it easy to...

  • Convert a series of Time Horizons to depth
  • Extract a Pseudo Check Shot from any location within the VelCube Database.
  • Create a Time-Depth Chart for the extracted CheckShot
  • Convert a series of Depth Horizons to Time
  • Compute Interval Velocity between horizons
  • Create a SEGY image file based on velocity
  • Model Velocity

For any database to be productive, you need easy access. Using our Velocity Database Extraction Program (VDBX), you have an easy-to-use set of tools that allows you to make full use of the VelCube database. The VelCube 3D database comes with VDBX and is available in UNIX, using an OSF/Motif interface, LINUX, or MS Windows for PC users.
