A35 MULTICOMPONENT PROCESSING AND ANALYSIS OF A 3D/9C SURVEY OVER AN ALGAL MOUND CARBONATE RESERVOIR IN THE PARADOX BASIN: ROADRUNNER FIELD COLORADO Summary 1 The Paradox Basin in southwestern Colorado contains several isolated carbonate reservoirs created by algal limestone buildups. These algal mounds are relatively straightforward to locate on conventional P-wave seismic data. The reservoirs however are generally not internally homogeneous and ultimate recovery depends on locating zones of increased porosity and permeability. In 2003 a nine-component (9-C) 3-D survey was acquired over the Roadrunner Field in the Paradox Basin northwest of the town of Tawaoc (Figure 1) in order
