Seismic and Rock Properties

May 28, 2017

Written by: Jeremy Gallop


Full field unconventional reservoir characterization employs elastic properties from seismic to image pay zones, calculate stresses and understand rock strengths in order to optimize development plans. The link between seismic data and the subsurface properties of interest often relies on a few calibration wells, in which many competing petrophysical factors influence the elastic logs which in turn govern the seismic response. Statistical methods generally form the basis of the connection between elastic data and petrophysical properties. These can range from simple crossplots to neural networks or more complicated statistical models, but all rely on having sufficient data to create a robust and trustworthy link.
