Seismic data is routinely used for mapping geologic structure and reservoir architecture. In the last few decades, however, geophysicists have elevated the role of seismic data to a higher level by relying more on elastic properties. Consequently, reservoir properties extracted from advanced seismic analysis are used by interpreters for prospect evaluation and reservoir characterization.
The main challenge in reservoir characterization, both conventional and unconventional, is to properly integrate seismic data into a robust geo-cellular model that captures the intra-well spatial distribution of the reservoir properties. The key to overcoming this complexity has always been an effective integration of diverse data and technologies.
Your Home Away from Home in the Heart of Manama
This iconic destination in Manama is 15-minutes away from Bahrain Airport. Wake up in a spacious room to views across Bahrain Financial Harbour. Buy spices at Manama Souq or shop at Bahrain City Centre, a 10-minute drive. Indulge in Spa InterContinental or soak up the sun by the outdoor pools. Savour the variety of six food and beverage outlets.

In the industry, seismic data, in a quantitative sense, is not optimally utilized in reservoir modeling and characterization. The Quantitative Seismic Reservoir Characterization Workshop will focus on a more pragmatic strategy by translating seismic inversion results, using an advanced probabilistic approach with the integration of geological information e.g. sedimentology, structural interpretation and sequence stratigraphy to produce 3D volumes exhibiting facies with associated fluid predictions. This provides a powerful 3D framework for swift asset decisions and integration with geo-modeling workflows.
