Revue de presse
'This will be a welcome addition to the library of any geoscientist wanting a firm foundation in state-of-the-art seismic reservoir characterization. Simm and Bacon cover all of the important topics, in a style that is not overly mathematical, and also illustrate each method with well thought out and illustrated geological examples from around the world. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to understand this important area of geoscience.' Brian Russell, Vice President, Hampson-Russell Software
'The authors have provided a coherent, comprehensive and, above all, practical guide for interpreters to exploit the information contained in the amplitudes of seismic data. They compare different approaches, highlighting advantages and potential pitfalls, and also explain the terminology. This book will be an invaluable guide for both beginners and experienced professionals and I'd recommended it for all geoscientists working with seismic data.' Patrick Connolly, Senior Advisor, Geophysical Analysis, BP
Présentation de l'éditeur
Seismic amplitudes yield key information on lithology and fluid fill, enabling interpretation of reservoir quality and likelihood of hydrocarbon presence. The modern seismic interpreter must be able to deploy a range of sophisticated geophysical techniques, such as seismic inversion, AVO (amplitude variation with offset), and rock physics modelling, as well as integrating information from other geophysical techniques and well data. This accessible, authoritative book provides a complete framework for seismic amplitude interpretation and analysis in a practical manner that allows easy application - independent of any commercial software products. Deriving from the authors' extensive industry expertise and experience of delivering practical courses on the subject, it guides the interpreter through each step, introducing techniques with practical observations and helping to evaluate interpretation confidence. Seismic Amplitude is an invaluable day-to-day tool for graduate students and industry professionals in geology, geophysics, petrophysics, reservoir engineering, and all subsurface disciplines making regular use of seismic data.
