It is a common workflow in commercial software packages to identify stratal features through flattening techniques. However, classic and proportional flattening methods have inherent drawbacks because they do not allow for use of physical laws and rock properties. The use of common mechanical-based restoration methods is also limited because of their low performance. In this paper, we propose use of a mechanical deformation technique based on the finite element method (FEM) to balance seismic data to a hypothetical domain. The conversion makes the interpretation process more reliable for quality control (QC) of structural analysis in an interpretation-friendly environment.
