Seismic data processing and imaging is concerned with the reconstruction of the subsurface image of the earth from measured seismic data. The quality of the reconstruction is highly dependent on the quantity and quality of the acquired seismic data and the skillful representation and processing of the data for imaging. Recent advances in wide-azimuth data acquisition and processing have amply demonstrated that better input data can dramatically change the exploration potential of subsalt plays in ways that improved imaging and velocity estimation methods on traditional data would not have been able to provide.
