eHR-275 HampsonRussell Basic Seismic Reservoir Characterization Virtual Workshop


Geoscientists, explorationists, and those wanting to understand the theory behind essential reservoir characterization techniques


This course covers the theory and practical use of STRATA, AVO, LithoSI and RockSI interactive
programs that are fully linked to the HRS suite of software

• Seismic Inversion - Provides a detailed overview of current seismic inversion methods
• AVO Modeling & Analysis - Provides a comprehensive look at the theory and application of the AVO
• Rock Physics Modeling and Facies Probability Analysis – Provides an introduction to interactive rock physics
modeling to construct robust elastic property logs for seismic inversion, and supervised Bayesian
classification technique to predict facies probabilities from combinations of inverted elastic properties

Learning Objectives

• Covers both pre-stack and post-stack inversion
• Provides a comprehensive look at the theory and application of the AVO method
• Introduces AVO Inversion methods: Simultaneous Inversion, LMR and EI
• Explains both the advantages and potential pitfalls of the AVO method
• Basic introduction to rock physics theory, modeling, and uncertainty analysis
• Basic introduction to Bayesian classification, multivariate Probability Density Functions (PDFs) and their
optimization, and Kernel Density Estimation
