A geostatistical modelling technique called cokriging is used to describe the lateral variations of porosity, f, in a synthetic and a real reservoir. Using this method, an error-qualified porosity model is estimated for each of the two reservoirs from sparse well porosity measurements and seismically derived velocities. The method capitalizes on the high spatial density of the seismic measurements and on their correlation with f. Compared with conventional reservoir models derived solely from sparse well control, the seismically consistent models are better spatially constrained and, hence, provide more detailed and accurate reconstructions of the porosity variations.
