Seismic interpretation data and applications are the key element of a rapid technological evolution in the remote sensing of the subsurface maps that has resulted in geoscientists movement from data poor to data rich Stewart, S. A. 1999. The proliferation of subsurface data has profoundly affected the productivity of oil exploration of industry within last two decade. This is radically improved of the ability to predict what lies beneath the earth surface, exploration and production. Log in construction maps (well) are the supplemented by 2-D data (seismic section and maps) in the 1950s and by 3-D seismic data from the 1970s onwards Davies R. I., Bell B. R. and shoulders S. (2002). However, the evolution of the point are the essentially dealt with a seismic constructions maps without the used of fourth dimension-time and the advent of a recent recorded change in the subsurface due to hydrocarbon extraction overtime. Today, exploration involves the extraction of more geological information from the seismic signals than ever before (Leadholm et al 1985).

Subsurface maps: A case study from Geofizika in Southeastern Cameroon Area.






    Subsurface maps are perhaps the most important vehicle used to explore for undiscovered hydrocarbons and to develop proven hydrocarbon reserves. However, the subject of subsurface mapping is probably the least discussed of interpretation and the construction of structure/Isopach maps, yet most important aspect of petroleum exploration and development. As a field developed from its initial discovery, a large volume of well, seismic and production data are obtained. With these data, the accuracy of the subsurface interpretation is improved through time.

    The most accurate interpretation for any specifics oil and gas field can be prepared only after the field has been extensively drilled and most of the hydrocarbons have been depleted. However accurate and reliable subsurface interpretations and maps are required throughout all exploration and development activities.


1.    Surface mapping: Is a way to visualize various geologic and hydrologic features in any dimension for a 1-D cross section to a 4-D production map.

2.    Seismic data: is a method of exploration, geophysics that used the principles of seismology to estimate the properties of the earth subsurface from reflected seismic waves.

3.    Seismic interpretation: Is the determination of the geological significance of seismic data.

4.    Seismic stratigraphy: Is a techniques for interpreting stratigraphic information from seismic data.

Summary and conclusion

    As well as subsurface maps and the their application in the oil industry is concern, the petroleum exploration development and other component such as geoscientist and engineers are expected to understand the actual types of subsurface maps for the insufficient formal training by the use of fundamental principal or method that underline must detail construction of subsurface maps in the oil industries weather the data source is a seismic interpretation or well log correlation Schlumberger 1998. Or thus seismic interpretation data & applications are the key element of a rapid technology evolution in the remote sensing of the surface maps that resulted in geoscientist movement from the data poor & to data rich, Stewart S. A. 1999.

    I hereby commend that, oil industries should enable to produce adequate training for the benefit of applicant for the work done in construction productivities and oil exploration under subsurface maps.
