The next topic in the Paradigm Education Series for the Americas is "Extract More from Your Seismic for Better Reservoir Models." Aymen Haouesse, Product Manager for Reservoir Modeling at Paradigm, will walk you trough the workflow demonstrating new ways to expand the use of the seismic data .

There will be 2 live sessions, on March 29 at 8:30 AM CST and on March 31 at 11:30 AM CST. If you cannot attend in person, consider joining these sessions via Go-to-Webinar. 


Seismic data is commonly used when building reservoir models. Integrated with well data, it provides abundant information to characterize the boundaries and internal architecture of the reservoir, resulting in more predictive models.

A typical reservoir modeling workflow includes interpreting the reservoir boundaries (faults and horizons) from the seismic volumes, creating the structural model and its associated 3D geocellular grid from the interpretations, and then filling it with lithology and petrophysical properties, such as porosity and permeability.

In this session, we will demonstrate new ways to expand the use of the seismic data in each of these steps of the workflow.  We will demonstrate: 

  • A new seismic attribute that enables more automation when interpreting faults, resulting in faster and more accurate interpretations
  • A new volumetric interpretation approach, which goes beyond the traditional interpretation limited to reservoir boundaries. Intra-formation events are automatically interpreted and used to extract stratigraphic features from the seismic data.
  • 3D geologic grids with internal layering constrained to seismic stratigraphy.  This ensures accurate mapping between the seismic scale and the geological model, for more accurate property and flow models.
  • A multi-scale data integration workflow to calibrate seismic and well data and ensure better characterization of the reservoir lithology and heterogeneities.
