Abstract

Seismic-derived elastic properties may be used to help evaluate hydrocarbon production capacity in unconventional plays such as tight or shale formations. By combining prestack seismic and well log data, inversion-based volumes of elastic properties may be produced. Moreover, a petrophysical evaluation and rock physics analysis may be carried out, thus leading to a spatial distribution of hydrocarbon production capacity. The result obtained is corroborated with the available well information, confirming our ability to accurately predict hydrocarbon production capacity in unconventional plays.
