Segmentation is a fundamental feature for all kinds of faults at different scales. It has a significant impact on hydrocarbon migration and flow for nonsealing faults, and on resevoir fluid estimates and compartmentalization for sealing faults. In spite of these benefits, application of the knowledge of fault segmentation to hydrocarbon exploration and production is limited due to poor seismic data quality, resolution, and lack of understanding of how this knowledge can be applied. Here is a case study from the Niger Delta of a normal fault seen on 3-D where we apply a methodology to visualize fault segments and their...
