National oil company of the Republic of Turkey Turkish Petroleum (TP) has added Paradigm Reverse Time Migration (RTM) to its product portfolio.

The RTM imaging solution is used in subsurface areas that have complex geology and complementary complex wave propagation phenomena.

Paradigm said the RTM handles the severe combinations of structural dip with high velocity contrast, which are identified in several exploration basins of Turkish Petroleum.

TP already uses other Paradigm seismic imaging solutions.

Turkish Petroleum data processing manager Mehmet Mutafcilar said: "We have been using Paradigm solutions for many years in our data processing center, and we trust its technology.
