This paper presents a case history of the pilot 3D seismic processing of the ultra high-density and full wide-azimuth 3D seismic survey across the Dukhan field for Qatar Petroleum (QP). The acquisition of the survey commenced in early in 2009 and took 2 years to complete. The pilot processing was carried out in parallel over a small 85 sq km area as a test to parameterize the 860 sq km production processing. The pilot test was completed in early in 2011. The VSP and uphole data processing and analysis has been initiated. The production surface seismic processing is expected to be completed by mid-2012. This paper focuses on the pilot test processing.
