An integrated study involving advanced seismic attribute and reservoir characterization tools in Macuspana Basin of Mexico provided an understanding of the structure, reservoir continuity, and quality of three mature reservoirs that optimized new drilling locations for exploration and development and generated a reservoir model for simulation purposes.

Conventional and advanced technologies were integrated after a feasibility analysis to generate several attribute cubes over a 3D seismic volume; these included acoustic impedance, amplitude variation with offset (AVO), porosity derived from artificial neural network (ANN) schemes, and spectral decomposition. These attributes, added to the structural and stratigraphic analysis and to a J-function...
