RMS amplitude 17 ms time-slice and inverted data coherence are shown in Figures 7b and 7c, respectively, where the RMS image shows an N-S sinuous continuity pattern to the east, interpreted as being a small meandering distributary channel which was consistent with the ICP palaeoenvironmental interpretation (2006) and supported by core analysis of well P33 drilled in the channel.
The method was tested on synthetic and log data and applied to seismic data for interpreting thin distributary channels deposited in a deltaic environment having a tidal influence.
Reservoir rocks in BB field are interpreted as fluvial channel, distributary channel, crevasse splay, shoreface and delta front deposits that tend to be discontinuous over short distances.
The channel body at the 580 m level is interpreted as a large distributary channel, based on its incised nature and aggradational style, whereas the Coal Mine Point channel body represents a meandering river that advanced over bayfills, much as the modern Atchafalaya River of Louisiana advanced rapidly once it had filled Atchafalaya Bay (Tye and Coleman 1989).

The authorised discharge of the distributary channel is based on the sum total of CCA of the individual watercourses of the distributary, alter adjusting for the seepage losses.
As the delta constantly built out to the south-west, changes in water depth and migration of the distributary channels produced a very complex set of inter-digitating point bar and channel sands with intervening shales and mudstones.
