A depth domain inversion workflow was applied to part of a 3D seismic dataset from the Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico that features thick salt sheets with complex morphology. Because of the geological complexity of the overburden, the target had variable levels of illumination that led to detrimental effects on amplitudes and phase, which conventional amplitude inversion techniques do not compensate for. The depth domain inversion workflow produced a reflectivity image and acoustic impedance volume corrected for the imprint of the acquisition geometry and complex overburden, enabling an improved structural and quantitative interpretation.
