Use of Previous HitInversionNext Hit for Reservoir Delineation Within a Fluvial Depositional Environment, Eromanga Basin, Queensland, Australia

R. C. Mummery

Reservoir delineation within fluvial deposits has been a source of concern and disappointment to both exploration and development groups. Seismic Previous HitmethodsNext Hit have greatly enhanced the ability to predict the location of reservoir units within clastic sequences. Conventional seismic processing and displays of Previous HitdataNext Hit still fail to adequately define these subtle reservoirs in many cases. Within a complex stratigraphic sequence, detailed information concerning the nature and distribution of reservoir units can be obtained through reprocessing and Previous HitinversionNext Hit of seismic Previous HitdataNext Hit. The reprocessing requires frequency enhancement, detailed velocity analyses, and phase adjustment (using well Previous HitdataNext Hit as a standard). The Previous HitinversionNext Hit process involves quantification, calibration, and careful selection f display parameters. Some well information is essential for Previous HitmodelingNext Hit and calibration. Color displays of the well Previous HitdataNext Hit Previous HitmodelingNext Hit are called Earthlogs. This paper will discuss the application of seismic Previous HitdataNext Hit Previous HitinversionTop and Earthlog models within the Jurassic clastic sequence located in the Eromanga basin, Queensland, Australia. One of the main reservoir units (Hutton formation) was deposited within a braided-stream depositional environment.
