Seismic Rock Properties and Rock Physics

Published:
January 01, 2016

Abstract

The essence of seismic-related rock physics consists of finding relationships between seismic rock properties and their petrographic and petrophysical parameters, including their mineralogy, texture, diagenesis, reservoir properties, and effective stress. These problems are discussed in Chapter 3. The chapter also addresses certain controversial issues, such as parameterization and appropriate model selection. The outcomes of this discussion are several rock-physics templates that feature the key petrophysical groups of siliciclastics in velocity-versus-porosity space and acoustic-impedance-versus-shear-impedance (AI-SI) space. Those templates naturally incorporate the effect of rock compaction and diagenesis and therefore are essential in modern seismic inversion interpretation.
