The goal of this study is to present a survey evaluation and design (SED) methodology that will determine an optimum acquisition geometry to properly image complex subsalt structures such as that in the Red Sea area. The key objectives are to analyze the impact each survey design has on the illumination of the target horizons, to quantify the improvements in seismic data quality and establish which strategy provides an optimum and cost effective acquisition scenario.
