Liuhua 11-1 Field is 130 miles southeast of Hong Kong in 1000 ft of water (Figure 1). The field, discovered in 1987, is being developed by the consortium of BP Amoco, China National Offshore Oil, and Kerr-McGee. The reservoir zone at 3850 ft subsea is producing 16–22° API oil through 25 long-radius horizontal wells. Success depends on limiting bottom-water production, which in turn makes accurate reservoir description critically important.

To better define reservoir heterogeneity, an ultrahigh-resolution 3-D seismic survey was acquired in July 1997. Acquisition was conducted during calm seas with short (1500 m) streamers and shallow (3.5...
