This investigation was undertaken to evaluate the processing flows needed to obtain vertical and radial post-stack-migrated seismic sections from a heavy-oil reservoir in eastern Alberta. Converted-wave seismic processing flows have been previously investigated and documented by Harrison (1992) and Isaac (1996). Of particular importance to converted-wave processing is the analysis of receiver statics. Isaac (1996) and Cary and Eaton (1993) showed that S-wave receiver statics can be extremely large and variable compared to P-wave receiver statics. It is not uncommon to have S-wave receiver statics on the order of ±200 ms, whereas P-wave receiver statics are commonly small, typically...
