Abstract: Most hydrocarbon absorption attenuation studies are based on poststack seismic data processing but, because of multiple stacks at full angle, poststack data will lose some lithology and hydrocarbon-bearing capacity information. To overcome this disadvantage, a prestack angle-domain absorption attenuation analysis technique can be performed for seismic data stacked at various angles to obtain angle-domain-dependent absorption profiles. The absorption anomaly reflects the gas-bearing reservoir and also decreases as the angle increases. Actual data from the Sulige gas field, Ordos Basin, have been processed, and the hydrocarbon predictions match very well with actual drilling results, validating the method's effectiveness.

Abstract: Subtle reservoir is an important area of hydrocarbon exploration in Qiongdongnan basin. The reservoir hydrocarbon-bearing potential is one of the cores of this research, and the geophysical technology is the main research tool. In this paper, AVO, AVD, DR and seismic attenuation gradient techniques are carried out to evaluate the hydrocarbon-bearing ability. Taking the JY area of eastern Qiongdongnan basin as a case study, the results show that the characteristics of gas-bearing reservoir in JY area are the 3rd AVO anomaly, high AVD and DR, and low attenuation gradient. Furthermore, multi-information fusion technique is used to qualify the gas resource scale and provide decision-making advice for the future exploration. It shows that the seismic anomaly sand body of the first member of Sanya Formation in JY area has large gas resource potential and good exploration prospect.
