This paper describes the results of an empirical one-dimensional model for toe thrust structures that enables both fluid pressure expectations and seal integrity to be evaluated. The growth of a deepwater thrust anticline is forward modelled with calibration made to a present-day structure. Two locations are used to describe the structural evolution: the crest of the anticline and the floor of the adjacent syncline. These locations are followed through structural growth and burial. Pore pressures in the evolving toe thrust are modelled by employing a centroid model for a pre-tectonic target reservoir interval, with shale pressures modelled using the...
