One of the first AVO discoveries in the Yegua trend is described in the following paper. An AVO anomaly was mapped on a seismic line across a combination stratigraphic/structural trap in an area where thick reservoir-quality sands had been drilled. AVO analysis contributed to the low risk perceived by the operators of this successful gas well. We include the paper because of the methodology used: detailed work was done to understand the seismic response, and AVO analysis was not the only geophysical tool used.
