In oil and gas exploration, the seismic data can provide the information of the earth’s subsurface structure and detect where oil can be found and recovered. To get a geological model of the earth, the complex iterative processing is being done. So, the need for computing power increases with the oil and gas exploration and development. And the new high-performance computing (HPC) technologies are used in seismic processing. We use NVIDIA’s CUDA programming language to accelerate seismic attributes extraction technology. By comparing the same work in the CPU and GPU, GPU is about 6 times faster, it shows that GPU can effectively shorten the processing time.
