Amplitude variation with offset techniques are used by exploration, development, and production teams to assist hydrocarbon identification in clastic depositional settings. While exploration groups tend to use AVO attributes for detection and risk quantification, exploitation and production groups use AVO attributes for reservoir characterization and even fluid-front monitoring. Accurate geoscience and engineering reservoir charcterization (parametrization) improve prediction of hydrocarbon reserves and reservoir production. It is therefore essential to understand which seismic attributes will best contribute to the characterization of the reservoir. This paper focuses on the accuracy of AVO attributes commonly used in reservoir characterization. In particular, the effectiveness of...
