An inverse rock-physics modelling strategy was used to provide estimates of reservoir parameters. Reservoir predictions made irrespectively of their spatial location, can have dissimilar ranges of variability. For instance, estimations of reservoir quality independently of their depths produced wide ranges of solutions, e.g. for lithology and saturation. Also a rock-physics calibration and model selection procedure using clay-rich siliciclastic data showed sets with wide ranges of solutions. Interdependency of parameters as porosity, lithology and saturation is expected and it can be used to constrain the model predictions, reducing the range of solutions and the uncertainty of the estimations. In this study, we use spatial correlation and observations which we have a higher level of confidence in to constrain predictions of the reservoir properties.
