1. Application Overview

Seismic Net Pay (SNP) estimates net pay from seismic attributes. More generally SNP can be used to make estimates of either net pay or net rock volume depending on the input data and the calibration. The documentation will refer to net pay throughout but interchangeability with net rock volume should be inferred.

The application interfaces directly with Seisworks or GeoFrame to read and write horizon data.

The basic steps of the algorithm are:
