Accurate monitoring of the movement of reservoir fluids is essential for optimum reservoir management. The role of seismic data in this process is shown in Fig 1. An initial reservoir description stage provides a detailed model of the reservoir based on reservoir geology, well data and seismic data. This model is then refined in a second stage to match pressure tests, production history and seismic monitoring data, in order to predict the future behaviour of fluids in the reservoir later in the field's life.
