Title: Horizontal Seismic Sections and Their Utility in Petroleum Exploration: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Alistair R. Brown

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Horizontal seismic sections are one type of product from a three-dimensional seismic survey. Three-dimensional surveys have been performed in every type of environment worldwide and have contributed to many exploration, appraisal and development successes.

Horizontal, or Seiscrop, sections display the spatial extent of subsurface features and are particularly valuable for direct mapping. Three dimensional data from several areas, including the Mid-Continent, will be used to demonstrate the utility of Seiscrop sections for structural mapping, and for the delineation of hydrocarbon flat spots, carbonate features, stream channels, and sand bars.
