Abstract

Advances in 3D visualization and volume detection have greatly improved our ability to find stratigraphic targets in areas of complex structure. In this paper we apply volume sculpting, seismic facies analysis and prediction of rock properties from seismic data to resolve a potential reservoir channel from a highly faulted setting in offshore Indonesia. These techniques use computational power to search for patterns in the data. These patterns may be presented to the interpreter or may be used to transform seismic and well data into estimates of rock properties. Such techniques should improve development efficiency in areas where complex structure has previously precluded the use of these techniques.
