This paper focuses on the detection of fracture zones within volcanic reservoirs using seismic attributes, and their calibration using well data. The work was done to understand observed field production behaviour, and for the use of these attributes to optimize future well placement during the field development programme. The Raageshwari Deep Gas (RDG) Field is located in the southern Barmer Basin in Rajasthan, India, within the RJ-ON- 90/1 contract area operated by Cairn India Limited (Figure 1). The field was discovered in 2003 with the drilling of exploration well Raageshwari-1. The field contains gas condensate with excellent gas quality of approximately 80% methane within tight volcanic reservoirs. Subsequent to discovery and appraisal drilling, the RDG field is currently being developed. To date, 30 deviated development wells have been drilled, with multi-stage hydraulic fracturing to increase production to economic rates.
