Conventional Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit interpretation is often inadequate for mapping stratigraphic-Previous HitstructuralNext Hit features and complexities that have a direct bearing on characterizing reservoir geometry. An example of this challenge is represented by the depositional sequences of the carbonate and clastic reservoirs of northern Kuwait. To characterize these sequences more unconventional techniques and work-flows are required to accomplish the task. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate an unique workflow using multi-attribute analysis and visualization techniques that were Previous HitappliedNext Hit to selected carbonate and clastic reservoirs to delineate their stratigraphic/Previous HitstructuralNext Hit features. We targeted the problems in two steps. The first was to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the available Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit using appropriate processing steps to better image the depositional geometries and Previous HitstructuralNext Hit features. The second step was to highlight and isolate those specific geological features in Previous Hit3-DNext Hit using different Previous HitseismicNext Hit attributes. By integrating these approaches with subsurface Previous HitdataNext Hit it was possible to speed-up the interpretation. The results showed that reprocessing, multiple-attribute analysis and Previous Hit3-DNext Hit visualization significantly improved the Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit quality. This helped resolve stratigraphic-Previous HitstructuralTop uncertainties leading to a more accurate characterization of the reservoir geometries.
