In 2008, the Virgil Kauffman Gold Medal was awarded to Carl Regone and John Etgen for their work in demonstrating the value of wide-azimuth towed-streamer acquisition for deepwater subsalt imaging, and for their role in bringing it to commercial reality. This demonstration was largely done by computing synthetic seismic data with different acquisition geometries and processing the data using depth migration software. This movie shows the complex wave propagation caused a high velocity salt body based on the geology at the Mad Dog Oil and Gas prospect in the deep water Gulf of Mexico.
