A 'new age' of subsurface geological mapping that's simply as some distance ranging in scope because the frontier floor geological mapping campaigns of the prior centuries is rising. it's the direct results of the appearance of second, and for this reason 3D, seismic info paralleled through advances in seismic acquisition and processing during the last 3 a long time. Subsurface mapping is fuelled through the industrial force to discover and get well hydrocarbons yet unavoidably it is going to result in significant conceptual advances in Earth sciences, throughout a broader variety of disciplines than these made through the second seismic revolution of the Nineteen Seventies. Now that 3D seismic information insurance has elevated and the expertise is greatly on hand we're poised to mine the total highbrow and monetary merits. This e-book illustrates how 3D seismic know-how is getting used to appreciate depositional structures and stratigraphy, structural and igneous geology, in constructing and generating from hydrocarbon reservoirs and likewise what contemporary technological advances were made. This technological trip is a fast-moving one the place the remainder medical strength nonetheless a ways exceeds the scope of the advances made so far. This booklet explores the breadth of the possibilities that lie forward in addition to the inevitable accompanying demanding situations. additionally to be had: the way forward for Geological Modelling in Hydrocarbon improvement - targeted book no 309 - ISBN 1862392668 South Caspian to critical Iran Basins - detailed book no 312 - ISBN 9781862392717 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the planet, and one of many biggest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes quite a lot of top quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable overseas recognition for the standard of its work.The many components within which we post in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reports and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications

2000), Demyttenaere et aL (2000), Moraes et al. (2000), Sullivan et al. (2000) and Winker & Booth (2000). What has emerged from these studies is that 3D seismic imagery of near-seafloor features play an increasingly key role in linking different scaled data sets and providing valuable information to develop sophisticated deepwater reservoir and basin-fill models (Fig. 1). From a shallow drilling hazard perspective, recent trends show that 3D seismic data often supplement or replace traditional 2D-based site surveys in many deepwater basins around the world.

Potential reservoir bodies on the slope-steps and slope minibasins are characterized by highly discontinuous reflectors, in a strike and dip direction. The discontinuity of reflectors is the result of intense channelization. On the slope where there is topographic confinement through erosion, channels are dominantly erosive and channel complexes are therefore amalgamated. Vertical and lateral connectivity may be good at the scale observed but will be reduced by plugging of erosive channels with clay grade material.

The individual reflectors of basin floor fans are continuous and lateral connectivity appears to be excellent at the scale observed. Many of the reflectors have a broadly erosional lower contact but the degree of vertical amalgamation is reduced when compared to confined systems on the slope. Apparent vertical connectivity is therefore reduced. Connectivity, both vertical and lateral, will also be affected by lithofacies variations on the margins of distributary channels and inter-channel areas.
