Carbonate reservoirs are often significantly more demanding to explore and produce than<br>siliciclastic reservoirs. The reasons for this are typically complex depositional facies with intense<br>fracturing and diagenetic effects as compaction induced subsidence.<br>Time-lapse seismic monitoring of carbonate reservoirs might identify subsidence and the flow<br>properties of the fracture network, which often make up migration paths for hydrocarbons or<br>injector fluids. Knowing these dynamic components of the reservoir behavior helps the asset<br>team to improve the management of the produced water and detect by-passed pay.<br>In this paper we present a set of new timelapse seismic analysis tools, for mapping these dynamic<br>reservoir features and demonstrate their performance at hand of a couple of real data examples.
