The reservoir characterization of Marrat carbonates in the Mingaish field has been challenging due to high reservoir heterogeneity, poor seismic imaging, sparse well spacing and compartmentalization. KOC implemented a multidisciplinary field development study to address these challenges.

Geostatisitical seismic inversion has been integrated in the multidisciplinary study. Compared with conventional deterministic inversion, geostatistical, or stochastic, inversion delivers multiple realizations of acoustic impedance correlated to porosity consistent with the available well and seismic data.
