By generating fault maps, isochron maps, and applying restoration techniques to 3D seismic data acquired over the Elward area of Syria, we have built a suite of cross sections that represent the tectonic evolution of the area. Fault maps and time structure maps reveal structural deformation, whereas isochron maps define areas of fault-controlled depocenters. Seismic attributes delineate fluvial channels formed during the Late Triassic period. The main rift phase in the study area is the Upper Cretaceous (Coniacian). Our analysis explained the absence of the Judea and the upper part of the Rutbah Formations from the stratigraphic column of the Elward north field.
