Abstract

An approach to model the detailed 3-D distribution of lithofacies and porosity constrained to seismic data is presented. The simulated annealing-based approach explicitly honors the relatively coarse vertical resolution, from a reservoir modeling perspective, and the less than perfect correlation of seismic with lithofacies proportions and effective porosity. Conventional geostatistical procedures such as co-located cokriging or the Markov-Bayes model assume that the seismic attribute has the same volumetric support as the geological modeling cells. The conventional techniques are reviewed, details of the proposed methodology are presented, and a reservoir case study is shown.
