Abstract: Time-Lapse seismic attributes has been showed as a promising tool to be used in the history matching process. The most common seismic attribute used to integrate these data is P-impedance. The procedure usually made is a minimisation of the differences between the seismic P-impedance and the synthetic P-impedance computed from the flow simulation data through a forward modeling. On this paper, we propose a methodology that goes in the opposite way. We invert the seismic data to pressure and saturation and then incorporate these results in the history match procedure in order to integrate the inversion process with the flow simulator, using the results of the reservoir simulation to guide the process. Another feature is that instead of using only the P-impedance in our inversion procedure we are also taking into account a second seismic attribute the S-impedance, which is more sensitive to pressure than saturation variations. A discussion is presented regarding the results obtained using a model with characteristics similar to the Brazilian offshore fields and synthetic seismic data. The main contribution of this work is the integration of the seismic attributes inversion and reservoir simulation processes. We also show the advantages of the inversion procedure to obtain pressure and saturation considering prediction of petroleum production and the details used in the methodology to avoid multiple combinations of saturation and pressure in the inversion process.
