Analog modeling provides the exploration and production industry with one of the most powerful and visual tools to understand the 4D structural evolution of sedimentary basins and individual or families of structures within those basins. Knowledge of the model setup and timing of syn-kinematic sedimentation combined with closely spaced serial sections of the completed models allows for the identification and understanding of structural processes within basins as well as providing possible geometries of poorly imaged structural geometries (e.g., subsalt and presalt structures, steep structures, thrust systems, structure, and stratigraphic geometries associated with diapir flanks) in seismic data. The recent application...
