Reflectivity of P-Wave Analysis for Fractured Reservoir Characterization in HTI Medium
Soni Satiawan, Hilfan Khairy and T.H. Zuhar Zahir

Abstract:
Nowadays, fracture is crucial issues for reservoir characterization because it is a main factor to control the fluid flow and has a correlation with permeability of the rock in the reservoir. Reflectivity of P-wave or known by, AVO analysis is a popular method that is used in industry to characterize the reservoir. However, for reservoir with fractures (fractured reservoir), AVO analysis for isotropy medium will give the inaccuracy result because fractures induce anisotropy so anisotropy parameter should be considered to characterize the fractures. AVOZ analysis was applied for fractures characterization including its parameter (orientation, intensity and fluid-filling) to know the behavior of fracture in HTI medium. In this study, we get that AVOZ analysis is more accurate than AVO for isotropy medium to characterize the fracture in HTI medium. In addition, by using AVOZ analysis fractures, its parameters could be characterized. Fractures that have same orientation with symmetry axis of plane will have lower anisotropy reflectivity and it will increase until the azimuth angle is perpendicular with symmetry axis.
