How to estimate pore pressure from seismic velocities ///

Pore-pressure prediction has applications in analysis of hydrocarbon migration and seal capacity, determination of reservoir drive and connectivity, analysis of drilling hazards (i.e., shallow water flows) and well casing design. Given the water depths, drill depths and well costs that challenge operators in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world, pore-pressure prediction should be an integral part of prospect evaluation and well planning.
