Time-lapse seismic monitoring necessitates integrated workflows that combine seismic and reservoir modeling to enhance reservoir property estimation. We present a feasibility study of an end-to-end inversion framework that directly inverts for permeability from prestack time-lapse seismic data. To assess the method’s robustness, we design experiments focusing on its sensitivity to initial models and potential errors in modeling. Our study leverages the Compass model to simulate CO2 storage in saline aquifers, which is derived from well and seismic data from the North Sea, a candidate site for geological carbon storage.
