The Eocene-aged Claiborne Group of central-southern Louisiana has produced significant amounts of oil and gas since the early 20 th century. Most of the production occurs around topographical highs associated with the emplacement of salt bodies in the subsurface. Alongside these highs, the hydrocarbon bearing formations have been targeted immensely, leaving fewer opportunities to produce any substantial and economical reserves. Comparably, the productive formations of the subsurface away from the highs have historically produced poorly, leading to underexplored and underdeveloped sections. These underdeveloped areas justify the acquisition of 3D geophysical data for exploration. 3D geophysical data can reveal prospects that have gone undiscovered through the application of older techniques of exploration. The Bonanza 3D seismic survey was acquired specifically for these reasons. Using modern techniques, attribute analyses were applied to the geophysical dataset and relevant intervals within the data. Interpretations have revealed possible accumulations of unproduced hydrocarbons.
