Rock Physics

Statistical rock physics models, correlated with seismic responses influenced by elastic rock properties, to discriminate lithology variations, porosity, pore-fluid type, water saturation and pore pressure. The statistical rock physics model can then be used in quantitative seismic interpretation to extract geological information from the seismic data.

Stochastic Forward Modelling

Can answer questions such as:

  • What type of AVA and amplitude response should I expect?
  • Does AVA aid in the discrimination and prediction of fluid and lithology?
  • What amplitude responses do we expect to see on full stack data?
  • What is the range (uncertainty) in the expected response?
  • Given the observed inherent scatter in end-member rock properties, can we discriminate between different lithology and fluid combinations in rock property space?
  • How do all of the above change with depth, fluid and lithological variations?
