Summary:

We present a framework for performing end-to-end seismic inversion of reservoir facies models under complex geostatistical models of prior uncertainty. In our methodology, we directly learn the end-to-end inverse mapping between 3D seismic data and reservoir facies using deep 3D convolutional neural networks. Our training dataset is simulated from the forward generative model comprising of the geostatistical prior on facies and geophysical model relating seismic to facies through elastic properties. To ensure reliability during prediction with real data, a method for performing data-based falsification of prior uncertainty is presented. Using a real case study from an offshore deltaic reservoir, we demonstrate the efficacy of our approach by inverting a large-scale facies model from 3D post and partial stack seismic data.
