An accessible guide to using the rock physics-based forward modeling approach for seismic subsurface mapping, for researchers and petroleum geologists.
Jack Dvorkin is a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Geophysics at Stanford University, California. His primary research interests are theoretical rock physics and its practical applications as well as computational rock physics, and he has taught dozens of industrial rock physics short-courses worldwide (USA, Canada, Colombia, Brazil, India, China, Japan, Norway, Germany, Italy). Dr Dvorkin has published around 150 professional papers and has also co-authored two books including The Rock Physics Handbook (Cambridge, 2009). Mario A. Gutierrez is a Principal Geophysicist at Shell Exploration and Production Inc., working primarily on the application of seismic- and rock physics-based methods for evaluating and risking the presence of reservoir rocks and hydrocarbons to support business decisions and recommendations on oil and gas exploration projects worldwide. Dr Gutierrez holds a PhD in Geophysics from Stanford University, California, and has previously held leading applied research and operations positions at Shell, BHP Billiton Petroleum, Ecopetrol and various seismic contractors, working on rock physics and seismic attributes modeling, reservoir characterization, shallow geo-hazards and pore pressure prediction. Dario Grana is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wyoming. He worked for four years on seismic reservoir characterization at Eni Exploration and Production in Milan, then moved to Stanford University, California, where he received his PhD in geophysics in 2013 - during which time he also published six peer-reviewed journal papers and presented at several international conferences. Dr Grana's main research interests are rock physics, seismic reservoir characterization, geostatistics and inverse problems for reservoir modeling.
