Book title: 3D Seismic Interpretation

by M. Bacon, R. Simm and T. Redshaw

Cambridge University Press, 212 pages, Hardback, ISBN 0-521-792037 (Price £80.00),

3-D seismic data have become the key tool used in the petroleum industry to understand the subsurface. In addition to providing excellent structural images, the dense sampling of a 3-D survey can sometimes make it possible to map reservoir quality and the distribution of oil and gas. This book covers basic structural interpretation and map-making; the use of 3-D visualisation methods; interpretation of seismic amplitudes, including their relation to rock and fluid properties; and the generation and use of AVO and acoustic impedance datasets. Also included is the increasingly important field of time-lapse seismic mapping, which allows the interpreter to trace the movement of fluids within the reservoir during production. Written by professional geophysicists with many years experience in the oil industry, the book will be indispensable for geoscientists learning to use 3-D seismic data, including graduate students and new entrants into the petroleum industry.

Book review by D. G. Roberts is available from Marine and Petroleum Geology, Volume 21, Issue 3 , March 2004, Page 422.
