Much of the world's conventional oil and gas production comes from fluvial-deltaic reservoirs. The ability to accurately interpret the architectural elements comprising these systems greatly reduces the risk in exploration and development in these environments. We have evaluated methods for using spectral decomposition attributes to improve the visualization in fluvial-deltaic environments using data from the Middle Pennsylvanian age Red Fork Formation of Oklahoma. We determined how spectral phase and magnitude attributes can be effectively combined using an hue-saturation-value color map to produce images that have considerable interpretational value. Incorporating our methods in the interpretation process has the potential to improve the exploration and development in these systems.
