SAAM facilitates the systematic and uniform grading of amplitude anomalies. Through an innovative interview process the team answers questions about the target amplitude in relation to the geologic setting, AVO classification, data quality, rock property analysis, analogs, and potential pitfalls.
Through the consortium-derived parameter weighting system, SAAM registers the impact of the data quality and seismic observations to generate an estimated prospect chance of geologic success.
In addition to the main module, which produces a calibrated Final Pg, SAAM also has modules on CSEM and Initial Pg. A separate SAAM Toolbox offers worksheets and helpful guidance on a variety of DHI-related issues, such as volumetric parameter ranges (area and NFP), tuning, AVO Class determination, prospect tracking, and other topics.
- Improved risk assessment, more-informed decisions, and a more reliable portfolio.
- SAAM stores an archive of analogs and tested prospects to guide and calibrate future work.
