4-D seismic data, acquired using conventional towed streamers, have been successfully applied to the Paleocene reservoirs of the North Sea. Importantly, AVO applications enhance the 4-D difference signal in this reservoir. We tested a new multivariate solution to predict shear-wave slowness against field data, and used this to establish an integrated rock physics model of the Forties Sandstone....
