Summary

Detailed, 3D seismic based structural studies of approximately 20 Previous HitsaltNext Hit domes in the Gulf of Mexico illustrate the complexities of the Previous HitsaltNext Hit-sediment interface and the geometric and kinematic relationships between the Previous HitsaltNext Hit and adjacent faults. Fault patterns adjacent to Previous HitsaltNext Hit domes are primarily controlled by sub-regional Previous HitsaltNext Hit evacuation and/or flexing of the sediments above the Previous HitdomeNext Hit. Faults that intersect Previous HitsaltNext Hit Previous HitdomeNext Hit flanks typically curve and intersect the Previous HitsaltNext Hit tangential to the Previous HitsaltNext Hit-sediment interface.
