Reservoir Lithology Determination from Seismic Inversion Results: Using Markov Processes. Promotor: Prof.dr. S.M. Luthi (CiTG).

For reservoir characterization, subsurface heterogeneity needs to be qualified in which the distribution of lithologies is an essential part since it determines the location and migration paths of hydrocarbons. Preliminary analysis of well-log data could help to identify various lithologies in a one-dimensional direction (depth), while the lateral information ismissing because of the sparse locations. On the other hand, a larger areal coverage of the target reservoir could be provided by seismic data, and from the inversion thereof, inferences of lithologies could be made. Thus, the main motivation for this thesis is to investigate the usage of geological prior information in the classification of reservoir lithologies from properties obtained from seismic inversion. Different methods have been tried in this process in order to fully understand their performances and to make comparisons.
