Abstract Currently advances in seismic data interpretation have been observed, given the quantitative tendency to achieve the determination of reservoir properties. Impedance seismic volumes along with petrophysics allow the
... w the characterization of petrophysical properties of rocks for building a reservoir model. The objective of this research was to generate a rock physics model to be used as a liaison for the interpretation of petrophysical properties in terms of the elastic response of a field in the Gulf of Mexico. 7 wells were used, whose reserves are located within the Middle Pleistocene. Petrophysical evaluation was performed and a theoretical model of rock physics was developed in order to synthesize the density, compressional and shear sonic logs, being the self-consistent model, which best reproduced the elastic properties of the rocks in this study. Subsequently, through cross-diagram analysis, the relationships between the elastic properties (P and S impedance, Vp/Vs ratio) and rock properties (porosity, clay content, water saturation) were analyzed. The effect of fluid replacement in the elastic properties was modeled. It is conclude that the synthesized curves provide a better understanding of the influence of petrophysical variables on the elastic properties of the rock, the poroelastic model generated allows discrimination of lithologies present.
