Fault imaging of Hibernia 3-D seismic data using edge-detection and coherency measures

Nicholle Carter and Laurence R. Lines


"Coherency cube" and fault detection technologies have evolved rapidly in recent years as important tools for seismic interpretation. The following paper, developed as a joint project between investigators at Memorial University and the University of Calgary, compares several of the fault detection methods for data from Hibernia field. The results, which are outlined in detail in the Memorial University M.Sc. thesis of Nicholle Carter, support the usefulness of coherency measures prescribed by Marfurt et al. (1998).
