Abstract

Seismic interpretation is the end game to our seismic data experiment. This is where all the hard work from seismic theory, modeling, acquisition, processing, and analysis comes together at the desks of the interpreters. They now have the ultimate task of making sense of these data to create and interpret geologically sensible models; build a coherent story regarding the trap, seal, and timing; find the in-fill target with enough remaining resources to be economical; and design the simplest and lowest-risk wellbore. In general, the interpreters provide a better understanding of the subsurface rocks and the risks and uncertainties associated with the interpretation.
