Quantum computing could be a potential game-changer in industry sectors relying on the efficient solutions of large-scale global optimization problems. Exploration geoscience, is full of optimization problems and hence is a good candidate for application of quantum computing. It was recently suggested that quantum annealing, a form of adiabatic quantum computer, is a much better suited quantum computing platform for optimization problems than gate-based quantum computing. In this work, we show how the residual statics estimation problem can be solved on the quantum annealer and present our first results obtained on a quantum computer.
