Four main groups of parameters influence the seismic response in carbonate rocks: (1) petrophysical properties, such as porosity, pore compressibility, fluid saturation, and fluid type; (2) lithologic parameters, such as mineralogy and shaliness; (3) measured conditions, such as effective stress, temperature, and frequency; and (4) geometric factors such as bed thickness and anisotropy. Knowledge of porosity variations over any carbonate reservoir has significant engineering and economic implications for production development activities. Because porosity is the most important factor determining the seismic response in carbonate rocks, quantification of its variation over a reservoir becomes a critically important task. Thus, before...
