The success of salt imaging requires accurate delineation of salt boundaries and faults around the salt. It is essential to define accurate salt boundaries for drilling updip hydrocarbon potentials at salt boundaries and to delineate small faults around the salt due to the compartmentalization of hydrocarbon traps by these faults around the salt.

However, the success of salt imaging largely depends on whether an accurate 3-D velocity model can be built. An accurate 3-D velocity model is required for seismic imaging and accurate depth prediction. A reasonable way to build such a model is to make sure that it incorporates...
