Chimneys are vertical chaotic disturbances in seismic sections related to the propagation of fluids (especially gas) through fissures and fractures in rocks. They can be indicative of mud diapirism, active gas seepage, migration pathways or hydrocarbon reservoirs themselves (Aminzadeh et al., 2002).
