How do we map and understand the spatial variability in our reservoir properties? Does seismic data have important spatial information to inform our geological understanding between our well control? In order to unlock that information we need to understand the rock physics.
Seismic reservoir characterisation of the Miocene carbonates of Southeast Asia (SEA) faces a number of challenges: the heterogeneous nature of the carbonates at many scales, the relatively low elastic property sensitivity of carbonate rocks to fluids and the limitations of the seismic data in terms of bandwidth, angle range and signal to noise.
A recent well drilled into a carbonate, the Papuan basin, Gulf of Papua provides a useful case study to assess these challenges.
