In Saudi Arabia, seismic data have played an indispensable role in exploration and production. The most significant impact has been structure mapping via traveltime information.

A desirable goal is to make more use of all of the seismic information, realizing that this goal is complicated by the fact that the seismic data and reservoirs in Saudi Arabia are primarily in challenging land environments.
