A newly acquired 3D seismic dataset over the Tengiz Field, Kazakhstan, has been interpreted to better understand the heterogeneity and complexity of carbonate margin, slope, and basinal environments. Initial iterative plan-view and cross-sectional mapping approaches coupled with better seismic imaging revealed features that are novel and impact reservoir characterization. New observations on stratigraphy and geomorphology are integrated with concepts from outcrop analogs, well data and provide critical new insights that support modify new generation of geological models including the sequence stratigraphy framework, lithofacies distribution and presence and occurrence of fractures and cavernous porosity.
