Chapter 8: A Subtle AVO Anomaly

January 01, 1993


In this example, AVO analysis successfully identified a gas effect in a subtle, poorly defined amplitude anomaly on a line with acquisition difficulties. AVO analysis correctly predicts the contents of several wells on the seismic line.

Cose history lessons
  • AVO can be successful in distinguishing pay sands from wet rocks.

  • Iterative surface-consistent amplitude balancing revealed an AVO anomaly not apparent after one pass of balancing.
