Abstract

This study explores the use of well logs and seismic derived rock properties to predict hydrocarbon potentials. Crossplot analysis of well log data and seismic attributes extracted and captured over some depth windows from the vicinity of the prolific hydrocarbon zone was the main methodology. This made it possible to develop relationships through cross-plotting of different log types and different seismic attributes. Emphasis was placed on petrophysics based properties from well logs while the stratigraphic, complex and signal based seismic attributes were computed and analysed. Combination of one or more attributes was attempted in deriving a correlative relationship typifying the reservoir property. The well log derived properties predicted the hydrocarbon potential of the reservoir better as it gave better correlation of above 70% on the crossplots made. While seismic properties crossplots had poor correlation except those of signal based and complex attributes that gave negative correlations.
