Abstract

A major difficulty in processing seismic data from the Regina Trough in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, is the disturbance of a low velocity zone buried in it. The correlation datuming method was developed to solve this problem. The method uses a stratigraphic interface, the Colorado Gp top, as the datum to recorrelate the stacked section. Based on the recorrelated section, called an ST image, the Trough time shift and velocities were measured. Consequently, the second ST image maps the Regina Trough clearly. The Regina Trough is a buried valley developing on a salt dissolution during the late Cretaceous to early Tertiary time.
