This paper aims at demonstrating how we may account for variability of the spatial distribution of sediment loading rates to establish a continuum between offset wells and the prediction area. We will show how this information may be used, along with seismic velocities, either in 2D or 3D, to provide beyond the desired to-be-drilled location, an understanding of the spatial evolution of pressure at the basin scale accounting for spatial variation of burial history.
