Even though seismic methods have been successful in explorations for hydrocarbon resources, they have been used very little in hydrocarbon recovery assessment. A major problem in reservoir evaluation and production is the complexity of most reservoirs, leading to large uncertainties in estimated total recovery, recovery rates, and recovery methods. Unquestionably, in the future seismic methods will play a major role in helping solve production and recovery problems. Before that role can be realized, we need to understand more fully what seismic waves especially in 30 surveys can teil us about reservoir rocks, and how to extract the desired information from seismic data.
