Understanding depositional architecture in deepwater clastic reservoirs

Rock physics inversion in the Okume field, Equatorial Guinea

This case study is presented to show the application of Rock Physics Inversion (RPI) as an interpretation tool used in conjunction with other disciplines to better understand the internal reservoir fabric in a weakly confined deepwater slope channel-levee system offshore west Africa. The incorporation of 3D/4D RPI products with other subsurface data assist in providing a better understanding of flow paths and discontinuities within reservoirs as well as refining the calibration of history matching in simulation models.
