On the basis of high-resolution sequence stratigraphy, this paper establishes a sequence stratigraphic frame, and predicts reservoirs by analyzing velocity field, seismic inversion, and seismic attributes. In the case study of the Jurassic Toutunhe Formation braided river delta reservoir of Shinan 21 well block, middle of the Junggar Basin, space variant velocity field inversion and reservoir prediction were carried out based on the sequence stratigraphic frame and the reservoir prediction accuracy was improved. Comparing the prediction results with the real drilling shows that, when the burial depth of bed of interest is 2 500 m, the maximum prediction error of depth is only 10 m, and the average relative prediction error is 0.16%; for appraisal wells with an average effective sandstone of 13 m, the maximum prediction error of sandstone thickness is only 5 m. The structure mapping and reservoir prediction constrained by the sequence stratigraphic frame achieved success. © 2009 Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration & Development, PetroChina.
