1. A method for the automated prediction of locations of hydrocarbon producing areas and non-producing areas directly from seismic data gathered in an area comprising the steps of:

  • developing a neural network using seismic training data relating to one or more hydrocarbon producing areas and seismic training data relating to one or more hydrocarbon non-producing areas; and

    applying the neural network to at least a portion of the seismic data to generate predictions of locations of hydrocarbon producing areas and hydrocarbon non-producing areas of the area.
