Pore pressure prediction using 2D seismic data, is it possible?

Saad Akber (Drilling Engineer at Halliburton)

I want to know about the pore pressure prediction through seismic data, in our region 2D seismic is much more common than 3D specially in the exploratory areas. And it is in these areas it is where you need this information the most for well designing, however it has been learnt that most 2D seismic data sets are not able to give the required info due to the poor quality. What are the quality control factors, and is there a way to calculate the close to actual pore pressure and fracture pressure gradients using 2D data. I will be grateful if it is discussed for my guidance here.
