Seismic reservoir characterization is usually based on the interp retation of seismic attributes that relate to the geological feature or reservoir property of interest. If we are interested in fault geometries, a variety of geometric attributes can be used to map the details of fault distributions and constrain discontinuities and flow barriers in geological and flow-simulation models. If we are interested in reservoir properties, however, the usual approach is to estimate seismic attributes that are qualitatively related to such properties. The interpretation of the attribute focuses on the identification of “good” and “bad” areas depending on how the attribute relates to the property of interest.
