Fluvially deposited reservoirs are very lithologically heterogeneous in nature. Net/Gross maps are an important interpretative tool for the development of these type of reservoirs. In this paper, the architecture of such fluvially deposited reservoir sequences is used to derive a seismic modified equivalent wedge model. A new method is presented to estimate the Net/Gross from seismic data with the use of this modified equivalent wedge model. The method is described and tested on a synthetic seismic 3D-data set.
