Re: Calibration of CHECKSHOTS with INTERVAL VELOCITIES
I know how to do it in Petrel, so here's the workflow. In other software there might be other routes...
First sample the stacking velocity datapoints into a regular 3D grid. Use upscaling process to do this.
Then use the petrophysical modeling tools to interpolate the velocity values. Krigging with a 1D trend along Z might be the way to go.
You can then also sample the checkshot into this grid and co-krig these checkshot velocity to the interpolated stacking velocities. Use a high correlation factor of 0.95.
The checkshot velocity will now be interpolated away from the well usign the variations observed in the stacking velocity. You can then pass this velocity property directly into the velocity modeling in Petrel.
There are other routes, but this is probably the most robust and most appropriate.
Note that you will be gridding average velocities so you need to ake sure you have a 1D vertical trend applied through data analysis. Petrel velocity modeling can only take in average velocities and therefore it's best to work with these velocities and to not
use interval velocities (although you can convert them).
Let us know how you get on!
