F024 Application of Contact Mechanics to Hydrocarbon Prediction in Shallow Sediments P.A. Avseth* (Rock Physics Technology) R. Bachrach (Western-Geco Schlumberger) A.J. van Wijngaarden (Norsk Hydro Research Center) T. Fristad (Norsk Hydro Exploration and Production) & E. Ødegaard (Norsk Hydro Exploration and Production) SUMMARY Recent efforts in rock physics have included a better understanding of the seismic properties of hydrocarbon reservoirs at shallow depths. Rock physics models based on contact theory have been used successfully to predict lithology and pore fluids from well log and seismic data in poorly consolidated Tertiary sediments (Mavko et al. 1998; Avseth et al. 2005). However
