Integrated Seismic Structure, Stratigraphy, Magnetic Basement Interpretation: Offshore Louisiana Shelf


This example provides a further rationale for using an integrated approach to seismic structure/stratigraphy interpretation and magnetic basement structure interpretation. The integration incorporates use of a 2D seismic/magnetic model whose basic sedimentary geometry was established by time-depth conversion of a seismic profile from a 3D survey. An important end-result of a model that fits all data sets is the visual demonstration of relationships between potential reservoirs in seismically mapped sedimentary structures, their gross stratigraphy, the faults required for trapping and/or providing migration pathways, a potential hydrocarbon “kitchen”, and the magnetic basement.
