Abstract

This chapter describes a study of the Rotliegend gas field in Germany in which impedance-constrained facies and property models were constructed to reevaluate the field and guide future development.

Three-dimensional (3-D) stochastic seismic inversion produces a highresolution acoustic impedance volume by integrating well data with fine vertical sampling and seismic data with dense areal sampling. This acoustic impedance volume can be used as soft data in geostatistical reservoir property modeling. The dense areal sampling in the 3-D seismic grid provides valuable information in interwell areas. Impedance data are particularly useful where well data are sparse.
