Geological Classification of Seismic-Inversion Data in the Doba Basin of Chad Carl Reine
The Mangara field in Chad produces from Lower-Cretaceous Sequences of the Doba Basin. The reservoir units consist of interbedded sands and shales of different thicknesses, and the resulting variability in properties makes accurate characterization important for field development.

Insights into converted-wave AVO and its use in inversion Carl Reine
This presentation is a tutorial, and a series of examples, on the use of converted-wave data for AVO analysis, with the goal of improving inversion results. We discuss some of the processing considerations for converted-wave AVO, and also show examples of how changes in S-impedance and density influence PP- and PS-amplitudes differently.
Session: Insights – Inversion and Attributes
Presenter(s): Carl Reine, Rob Tilson
Date: Tuesday, March 8, 2016
Time: 9:15am - 9:40am
A rock-physics based classification of the Doba Basin of Chad Carl Reine
Rock-physics models provide the means to translate the elastic properties obtained from seismic inversion, into geological attributes that carry more intuitive meaning for reservoir development. In this presentation, we create a rock model that initially is based on x-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, fluid analysis, and engineering parameters. We then extend the model to account for the interbedded nature of the reservoir, using net-to-gross ratio (N:G), along with porosity, to create a geological model of the field.
Session: International Case Studies I

Western Canada Resource Plays: The Slightly Smaller Fruit! Meridee Fockler
Resource plays using horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing technologies continue to dominate the Canadian oil and gas landscape outside of the oil sands areas. Canadian Discovery Ltd. continuously analyzes western Canada resource plays, spanning Cretaceous to Devonian reservoirs and extending across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. This analysis highlights potential trends the industry is pursuing.
