In this study, a certain zone of Libra oil field of the pre-salt region was selected to be analyzed for didactic purposes in order to simulate AVO responses. The region was modeled using seismic data, setting up a typical oil system with source rock (shale), reservoir rock (sandstone), and seal rock (salt). Thus, a set of parameters such as seismic wave velocity, density and Poisson's ratio for the studied zone was proposed. The AVO analysis allowed the classification of reflectors and the
