Abstract: Reservoir Characterization by Using 3-D Seismic Attributes with Log Properties

Benoit Magnier

Maps that are generated from seismic data alone, or well data only, often lead to further uncertainties in delineation drilling. This paper describes a technique that makes concurrent use of seismic and log data to produce seismic-derived reservoir properties. A statistical correlation is attempted between several seismic attributes including, amplitude, acoustic impedance, velocity, etc., that are combined over the reservoir interval with log properties such as porosity and saturation. This technique is applied to the Mahakam delta in eastern Indonesia. The traditional amplitude displays are correlated with this reservoir modeling technique and differences/refinements in their interpretation are addressed.
