AVO and Seismic Inversion Print E-mail

AVO is the analysis of pre-stack seismic data for the purpose of evaluating and modelling Amplitude Versus Offset anomalies. Fluid system is modelled where seismic tied with wells and then propagated through the whole volume.
Inversion can be done both on the post and pre-stack seismic. This process tries to extract fluid related properties of rocks from seismic amplitude and phase response.
AVO or seismic inversion normally helps identify unswept reservoir blocks or identify new prospects in the vicinity of data calibration points.
