2. Benefits of Seismic Inversion

Listed below are some the benefits of seismic inversion.

  1. More geoscientists understand the concept of impedance and geology than the seismic trace. Thus, working in the impedance domain is a great mechanism for integrating with the various disciplines in a multidisciplinary asset team.

  2. Removes the effects of the wavelet within the seismic bandwidth.

  3. Forces well ties to be made and understood.

  4. Reservoir properties are separated from the overburden.

  5. May provide quantitative predictions on the reservoir properties.

  6. Stratigraphic interpretation may be improved.

  7. Interpreting in the impedance domain is frequently easier than in the seismic domain.

  8. Possibility of extending beyond the seismic bandwidth.
