Post stack seismic Inversion is being used in the industry for better understanding of the reservoir and realistic assessment of oil in place. As a part of integrated study a comprehensive seismic interpretation and inversion study were carried out in the Minagish field for the deeper carbonate reservoir. Here most of the wells were drilled over the present day structural high and it shows a moderate to good porosity development. Seismic inversion and porosity modeling study suggest that the best developed reservoir zone is away from the established field. Paleo structural analysis was carried out to gain a better insight of porosity development in the area.
