Book description

Seismic amplitudes yield key information on lithology and fluid fill, enabling interpretation of reservoir quality and likelihood of hydrocarbon presence. The modern seismic interpreter must be able to deploy a range of sophisticated geophysical techniques, such as seismic inversion, AVO (amplitude variation with offset), and rock physics modelling, as well as integrating information from other geophysical techniques and well data. This accessible, authoritative book provides a complete framework for seismic amplitude interpretation and analysis in a practical manner that allows easy application - independent of any commercial software products. Deriving from the authors' extensive industry expertise and experience of delivering practical courses on the subject, it guides the interpreter through each step, introducing techniques with practical observations and helping to evaluate interpretation confidence. Seismic Amplitude is an invaluable day-to-day tool for graduate students and industry professionals in geology, geophysics, petrophysics, reservoir engineering, and all subsurface disciplines making regular use of seismic data.


'This will be a welcome addition to the library of any geoscientist wanting a firm foundation in state-of-the-art seismic reservoir characterization. Simm and Bacon cover all of the important topics, in a style that is not overly mathematical, and also illustrate each method with well thought out and illustrated geological examples from around the world. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to understand this important area of geoscience.'

Brian Russell - Vice President, Hampson-Russell Software

‘The authors have provided a coherent, comprehensive and, above all, practical guide for interpreters to exploit the information contained in the amplitudes of seismic data. They compare different approaches, highlighting advantages and potential pitfalls, and also explain the terminology. This book will be an invaluable guide for both beginners and experienced professionals and I’d recommended it for all geoscientists working with seismic data.’

Patrick Connolly - Senior Advisor, Geophysical Analysis, BP

'… this book is well written and nicely organized. The authors provide a comprehensive, detailed, yet practical reference for interpreting seismic amplitudes in terms of lithology and fluid presence, which are crucial in detection, characterization and evaluation of hydrocarbon reservoirs. … The book contains a plethora of high-quality illustrations, all in color, that effectively convey the concepts presented. The authors also include numerous examples of real data that demonstrate the methods and potential issues, which have been discussed within the text. This book has many levels of reading, being reachable to beginners and graduate students, but also valuable to experienced researchers and professionals in various fields, such as explanation seismology, structural geology, hydrocarbon engineering, petrology and petrophysics.'

'Unlike traditional handbooks which provide concise, ready reference, this is in fact an influential, comprehensive and interdisciplinary piece of work in a relatively young field of geosciences about the use of seismic amplitude for hydrocarbon detection. It is a self-contained attempt comprising everything that is needed to do and know about the topic, covering from essential to specific issues encountered in the field … the authors confidently demonstrate their expertise in the field. … this book broadly cites past work conducted in the field as it contains more than 450 references throughout its ten chapters, providing a complete and particularly didactic treatment of seismic amplitude for hydrocarbon detection. As the book is multidisciplinary in nature, it can be of interest for beginners as well as experienced practitioners and researchers in geology, geophysics, geotechnics, engineering seismology, petrophysics, reservoir engineering, and even other engineering fields dealing with seismics, such as structural and earthquake engineering.'

'This is arguably one of the most helpful handbooks on seismic amplitude interpretation published to date. The book was written by and for seismic interpreters who have experience in academia and the petroleum industry. The quality of the color figures are outstanding and are key when interpreting seismic attributes and in highlighting amplitude anomalies … This book is primarily recommended to geologists and geophysicists either working on exploration or development/production projects. This is a book that I will keep on my office desk at all times.'
