In the Gulf of Mexico, the main deepwater depositional environment consists of turbidite channels.

Given the meandering and compartmentalised nature of this type of deepwater reservoir, a comprehensive understanding of their architecture plays a key role in efficient development of the field.
Imaging turbidite channels in sub-salt locations is particularly challenging, especially when working with vintage seismic data. Click here to read the case study in full.
