We introduce a simplified way of using 4D seismic amplitude differences, without explicit full-physics modelling, in a history matching workflow that includes conditioning to both well production data and flooded-zone patterns derived from time-lapse seismic surveys. This approach reduces the complexity of the integration workflow, and speeds up the integration cycle. Examples from both synthetic and field cases demonstrate the success of the workflow.
