What is it about?

Rock-physics inversion has been widely used in reservoir prediction. However, the prediction and evaluation of source rocks still predominantly rely on data-driven inversion methods. In order to directly incorporate the rock-physics relationship into the seismic inversion of source rocks, we first proposed an AVA inversion of low-maturity source rocks by rock physics linearization and Seismic reflectivity parameterization.

Why is it important?

Comparative analysis against data-driven inversion results reveals that the essential physical parameters predicted by the proposed amplitude versus angle inversion method possess enhanced rock-physics support and significance.


Geophysics is a prestigious journal in the industry. It is my pleasure to publish this paper in Geophysics to attract more attention to hydrocarbon source rock prediction.
