Synthetic seismogram from a well in deepwater Nigeria.
Proper display should always:
1.- start with the caliper curve (tells the audience how reliable are the logs),
2.- continue with the display of the time-depth table the synthetic is using,
3.- show essential geologic logs i.e. SP/GR and resistivity
(tells the audience something about the geology),
4.- clearly display the sonic and density logs the synthetic is based on
5.- show the Acoustic impedance curve (AI)
(tells the audience how the seismic data sees the gerology)
6.- show the reflection coefficient curve (tells the audience where
prominent soft kicks and hard kicks will be,
7.- show the wavelet (essential that it has the same bandwith, polarity and phase
as the field seismic data,
9.- show a trace extracted from the field seismic data at the well in blue
10.- show a scale on the left or right, showing both time and depth.
In this case, the sonic and density logs required some editing for washouts prior to modeling.
