Monitoring reservoir changes with time-lapse seismic holds the promise to significantly improve reservoir characterization and reservoir management. Relating time-dependent changes in seismie to the underlying flow processes requires inputs from: (1) geological modeling/geostatistics, (2) flow simulation, (3) rock physics, and (4) seismic imaging. This paper documents the results from a project that brings these disciplines together. In this study we have considered the forward problem for a 3-D reservoir monitoring problem: creating a detailed geological model, performing flow simulation, relating the dynamic rock properties to seismic properties, and, finally, imaging the reservoir at multiple times.
