Llanos Basin is well known for its hydrocarbon potential and proven reserves. One of the main Imaging challenges is the fault shadow zone impact on the the geological targets and therefore its reserves. This presentation highlights the positive contribution of PSDM Imaging to the mitigation of the fault shadow zone impact applied on Entrerrios 3D survey. the mapped hydrocarbon reserves increased by a significant factor.
