Chapter 4: Rock Properties

ABSTRACT

A knowledge of local rock properties is necessary before AVO analysis can be conducted in an area. In this chapter we discuss three wells in the case study area. Measurements of Vs in the case study area are compared to calculations of Vs for shales, wet sands, and gas sands. Measured S-wave velocities are closely matched by calculated velocities for shales but not for sands.
