By the end of the 20th century, the geology of the Moravian part of the Vienna Basin was fairly well known from hydrocarbon exploration; nevertheless, recently acquired seismic data have provided important new information. Some of the most interesting geological features derived from 3D seismic interpretation are presented in this article. The main focus is on the Badenian deposits which comprise the most important sedimentary succession in terms of thickness, rock volume, tectonic evolution, and hydrocarbon accumulations. Examples from other Neogene stratigraphic stages are also presented. 3D seismic data analysis has contributed to a better understanding of the basin’s geological development in terms of the temporal and spatial relationships between tectonics, depositional environment, and sedimentation. The 3D data have enabled interpreters to identify new potential structural, stratigraphic, and combination hydrocarbon traps, some of which have been confirmed by wells.
