Depth imaging, once too costly and difficult for commercial use, is now the preferred seismic imaging tool for today's most challenging exploration and reservoir-delineation projects. In structurally complex areas, especially where faulting and salt intrusions lead to complicated seismic-velocity models, traditional time-domain processing gives misleading results; only depth imaging reveals the true location and shape of subsurface features. This article shows how depth imaging improves seismic images and presents examples demonstrating how oil and gas companies use it to improve their success rates.
