In this paper we use combined burial history and rock physics modelling of sand and shale, in order to predict expected AVO signatures for a given burial history. The advantage with this approach is that we can extrapolate away from wells in areas with complex tectonics. We can also simulate expected AVO signatures as a function of geologic time. Finally, we can use burial history to create AVO pdfs for calibration and classification of AVO attributes in a given field. We demonstrate the use of these techniques on the Myrsildre and Skalle wells in the Barents Sea.
