Seismic amplitude, classical (two-parameter) AVO analysis, and impedance inversion are exploration tools used by geoscientists with varying degrees of success in basins all over the world. It is only natural to apply these technologies to offshore Brunei. Yet the exploration challenge in the more distal sediments of offshore Brunei is finding clean, porous, reservoir sand. If successful in this quest, the hydrocarbons tend to follow. Then what is needed is an exploration technique to find sand in the distal portions of a hydrocarbon-saturated basin. The classical seismic-analysis tools are not the best solution. This article discusses why classical procedures have...
