Quantitative interpretation (QI) is an important part of successful Central North Sea exploration, appraisal and development activities. Accurate determination of hydrocarbon facies is particularly vital as the oil and gas industry currently faces low oil prices and fewer subsurface opportunities. This paper presents an integrated workflow on a recent North Sea discovery using broadband seismic data and a new joint-impedance and facies based inversion. The focus was, in particular, on analyzing the best and worst case scenarios for the distribution of facies to help optimize future appraisal and development decisions.
