Maximizing Carbonate Potential with Rock Physics Modeling

A substantial amount of the world’s hydrocarbon resources are located in carbonate rocks; therefore, it is critical to develop a robust approach for quantitative interpretation of these reservoirs. Carbonate pore microstructure can be complex, and we see a need to move beyond ellipsoidal inclusion assumptions to account for this complexity. In this webinar, we will do a review of our latest developments in the theory and application of rock-physics modeling in carbonates. We focus on the effects of mineralogy, porosity, pore shapes, and effective stress on elastic properties of limestones and dolomites in a wide range of depositional environments. We show that a modern theoretical model can be successfully used for AVO-based reservoir characterization efforts worldwide.
