Paper Summary

We present an advanced velocity model building and imaging methodology that resulted in significant enhancements in defining the salt flanks with overhangs and subsalt structures. The key technologies used were (a) True Azimuth Multiple Elimination (TAME), (b) Tilted Transverse Isotropy (TTI) model building (FAN), (c) TTI Reverse Time Migration (RTM), (d) RTM Delayed Imaging Time (DIT) scans and (e) post-migration multiple attenuation.
