3.3D Seismic Lines


The 3D seismic lines are read into Petrel in a specific
General Lines/Points (ASCII) (*.*) format as shown in
Fig. 5.1.

How to import a seismic lines file


To insert the seismic lines to the project:

1. Click the Insert

menu command and choose New


Interpretation Folder.
2. A new interpretation folder will be added, Right-click on
this item, then select Import (on Selection).
3. The Import File form appears as shown in Fig. 5.2. Select
General Lines/Points(ASCII) (*.*) format from the Files of
type combo box, and specify location and name of the seismic
data files to be inserted into the project.

4. Make sure that the X, Y, and Z-columns are correctly


numbered, in this case, 1, 2, and 3 as shown in Fig. 5.3.
There exist two options for reading seismic lines, the
Points and Lines options. For faster display, the Lines
option is selected. However, for more accurate display of
seismic data, the Points option is selected. Once done, the
Ok button is clicked.

5. The Input data dialog form appears. Make sure that the
correct domain is selected; in this case, the Elevation Time
option should be selected from the Template combo box, as
shown in Fig. 5.4. Press the Ok for All button, and press OK.
