Hydrocarbon Production from the South Ellwood Field and the Effects on Naturally Occurring Oil and Gas Seeps


Refraction statics are typically thought of in terms of resolving long-wavelength statics that can cause false time structures or if not solved adequately simply degrade the final stacks. This paper shows how determining a near-surface, low-velocity model resulted in superior refraction statics. These statics dramatically enhance the resolution of deep structures in the pre-stack migration of data from the deformed fold belt on the west side of the San Joaquin Basin, Kern County, California.
