The interest in seismic stratigraphic techniques to interpret seismic datasets is expanding continuously. The advent of sophisticated subsurface reservoir studies and 4D monitoring, for optimizing the hydrocarbon production in existing ﬁelds, do demonstrate the importance of the 3D seismic methodology.
The added value of reﬂection seismic has clearly been proven in the last decades and it was especially beneﬁcial on the petroleum development side. Seismic reﬂection proﬁles form a vast and solid data source of information on the structure of the subsurface. The seismic dataset gets nowadays explored in ever greater detail. These kind of investigations provide a vital tool for delineation of subtle hydro-carbon traps and are essential in regional basin analysis.
The big advantage of seismic stratigraphy in basin studies lies in the fact that the methodology combines two very diﬀerent scales of observation: the seismic and well-control approach. This explains why many work-ers are using seismic stratigrahic principles to evaluate their seismic observations.
