Submarine fan channel and levee complexes have long been recognized as an integral component of deep-sea depositional systems (Buffington, 1952). Ancient channel/levee complexes show promise for oil and gas development and production (Imperato and Nilsen, 1988, 1990), particularly in an era where exploration is moving into deep-water and more distal depositional setting targets. We need to achieve a better understanding of the internal arrangement of channel, levee, and distal overbank facies within deep-sea depositional systems. This knowledge may lead to more refined basin analyses, more detailed reservoir characterizations, and more accurate reservoir models.
