3D seismic data predict Al-Khafji reservoir attributes

A recent study using data from the Al-Khafji oil field, in the Arabian Gulf off Kuwait, shows how seismic attribute data can predict reservoir properties, such as porosity, and its lateral variations and extensions if the attributes are calibrated accurately with the respective petrophysical data.The study explored reservoir quality and its spatial distribution and examined the stratigraphic trapping mechanism with 3D seismic imaging. The Al-Khafji field had available 350 sq km of 3D seismic and data from 62 wells.In the study, the geological marker was flattened along a calibrated time horizon helped define a prospective regional Wara lithozone between Wara and Mauddud formations.
