The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) is one of most prominent offshore exploration regions and has become known for its salt associated discoveries and mega oil finds
The GOM has a long and complex depositional history and is extensive in size, attracting explorers from around the world. Abundant salt pillows and diapirs populate the subsurface of the GOM resulting in a need for thorough and modern processing sequences to obtain accurate seismic imaging.
The GOM contains multiple, thick, source rock intervals resulting in multiple petroleum systems throughout the region. The area continues to remain one of the most successful exploration provinces despite maturity as the drive for understanding the complex area and the hunt for the large variety of undiscovered play types continues.
