Abstract

The first multi-coverage, low-frequency deep reflection surveys in the Pannonian Basin were initiated in the late eighties and were focused to SE Hungary where hydrocarbon and geothermal reserves were known. Deep seismic profiles (Pannonian Geotraverse transects) were shot according to the standards of hydrocarbon exploration data acquisition parameters to get information from the deep crust and the upper mantle. At the turn of the millennium, the international CELEBRATION 2000 deep seismic survey provided a large scale velocity model of the Pannonian Basin and its surroundings. The substantial coverage of the collected data set enabled to carry out a detailed 3D velocity tomography study in NE Hungary. In recent years, deep reflection data recorded in SE Hungary became available from the oil and gas industry and several regional profiles were reprocessed and interpreted which are intersecting the Pannonian Geotraverse transects. Along those lines, amplitude preserving data processing with Pre-Stack Depth Migration was utilized to integrate new information into the existing geological model. The aim of this study is to present the recent results obtained from the previous and new deep reflection data as well as from the 3D velocity tomography implemented beneath the eastern part of the Pannonian Basin. The mapped crustal scale features were incorporated into the previous geological model. The updated model may help to get a better understanding of the peculiar crustal characteristics of this part of the Pannonian Basin and also provide information for hydrocarbon and geothermal potential assessments.
