A successful seismic-based reservoir properties estimation effort has three steps: accurate seismic inversion in 3D to obtain relevant reservoir parameters, rock physics transformation to relate reservoir parameters to the seismic parameters, and mapping these parameters in 3D. This problem is nonunique and thus any available information—specifically geologic interpretation—should be used to improve our ability to infer the reservoir properties of interest with confidence. Moreover, uncertainty associated with the different predicted values (i.e., confidence interval and estimate of misclassification probability) must be provided as well, so that proper decisions can be made. Thus, it is evident that this involves interdisciplinary effort...
