Abstract

Reservoir saturation changes can be detected by repeat 3-D seismic surveys. These rely on some seismic attribute such as travel time, amplitude or velocity changing with saturation, either gas, oil or water. Rock physics measurements show that rocks with a high compliance or low stiffness have the greatest sensitivity of Vp to saturation changes. Stiff rocks may only exhibit small changes in Vp with saturation, which may be undetectable on repeat surveys. However other seismic attributes, such as signal amplitude may show large variations.
