    Abstract

    The accuracy of estimating reservoir pressure using seismic amplitudes is studied using simulator to seismic modelling. To capture the physics of the reservoir process, the simulation involves coupled geomechanics and flow. Properties from a compacting chalk reservoir are used to guide the analysis. The study provides evidence that the amplitude-pressure relationship is strongly influenced by thickness variation, structure and overburden strain changes, and these must be adequately understood before accurate pressure estimates can be made. © 2005 Society of Exploration Geophysicists.
