The availability of a 3D seismic dataset allows for the review of a preserved full cycle shelf-to-slope-to-basin setting from near water bottom Neogene deposits in the West of Shetlands, UK. This goes beyond the 2D interpretations that proliferate most previous technical papers. The use of 3D seismic data visualisation allows a comprehensive review of imaging and interpreting of the key geomorphologies associated with shelf, slope and deep water basin settings. The resolution of the Neogene sediments is enhanced by creating and analysing the principal seismic attributes Sweetness and Spectral Decomposition that are conducive for optimal stratigraphic interpretations. The Neogene analogue has invaluable reference material to pursue potential reservoir systems of the older Palaeocene Vaila sands in the West of Shetlands, and also worldwide.
