This webinar discusses, ‘What is Multi-Scenario Inversion?’ and why is it important. Seismic inversion has seen industry-wide adoption as the tool of choice for subsurface characterization at and away from well control. We propose a two tiered inversion strategy that aims to address and better explore the solution space during seismic inversion and reservoir characterization.
We will look at some of the challenges in Seismic Quantitative Reservoir Characterization, an overview of the Facies Based Inversion Scheme, and will demonstrate how this works through a real world case study.
