Common Contour Binning (CCB) is an approach, based on the principles of the CMP method, to reorganize and filter post- and pre-stack seismic data. It is a very powerful technique to highlight subtle hydrocarbon-related amplitude effects on both pre- and post-stack data. Pre-requisite is that such effects are structure conformable with available interpretation, and that they are flat in the domain of investigation. Under these conditions, CCB can identify fluid contacts which are not or hardly visible on conventional seismic displays. As CCB can also highlight subtle AVO effects on raw pre-stack data, it is a very effective technology for interpretive use of unconditioned pre-stack data early in the exploration cycle. © 2010, European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers.
