Introduction Results & Discussion

Another approach for better hydrocarbon prediction and
reservoir characterization Elastic Properties Analysis
Objectives of this case study are: AI SI
(i) Predict the lithology and fluid distribution in X field Adopted from Goodway, et al., 1997

(ii) Obtain a reliable estimation of P wave velocity (VP), S-

wave velocity (VS), and density (). Vertical Scale

to predict lithology and fluid distribution.
Well group wavelet is yielding better inversion results compared to
Methodology statistical group wavelet.
Simultaneous inversion is feasible to be conducted in complex reservoir
