Imaging in basins next to large bounding faults can have its challenges. We show here a case study where a combination of new broadband data, pre-conditioned with an extensive multiple suppression sequence, and using the most recent techniques in velocity model building has helped to improve seismic data. This update helped to confirm which geological model was correct in the vicinity of the fault.
