This investigation was undertaken to evaluate the processing flows needed to obtain vertical and radial post-stack migrated seismic sections from a heavy oil reservoir in Eastern Alberta. The radial filter was found to successfully attenuate shot-generated linear noise on both the vertical and radial components. Gabor deconvolution was found to successfully boost signal to noise in low fold areas of the data. The depth-variant stack has shown to have greater frequency in the near surface data compared to the CCP stack for the radial component.
