Lamda (λ) Mu (µ) Rho (ρ) seismic inversion method has been applied to identify the distribution of conglomerate reservoir in Melandong Field, Northwest Java Basin. This research used 3D pre-stack time migration seismic dataset with one well data and a checkshot data. A sensitivity test analysis was done to see the validity of the dataset and well seismic tie has been applied before generating a background model for the inversion processes. The outcomes of this research show that Lamda Rho (λρ)

Besides that, Mu Rho (µρ) inversion can indicate the rock type and it shows that conglomerate has higher value (26-32 (GPA*(Gr/cc)) than claystone (20-26 (GPA*(Gr/cc)). By combining both Lamda-Rho and Mu-Rho inversion results, the distribution of the reservoir rock and hydrocarbon can easily be detected and mapped.
