In the late 1960s-early 1970s, seismic stratigraphy revolutionized the petroleum industry by providing an objective, meaningful technique for describing the stratigraphic record and predicting the distribution of potential reservoir, source and seal facies. Within the last 10 years, the uses of seismic data have evolved from sequence interpretation and qualitative assessment of reservoir trends to evaluations that include more quantitative prediction of reservoir properties. Throughout the industry, seismic attribute analysis has become a commonly utilized tool for quantitative evaluation of reservoir properties from seismic data.

Seismic attribute analysis can require that the interpreter defines an interval for which seismic attributes...
