Reservoir characterization based on amplitude variation with offsets/angles (AVO/AVA) is the core of geophysics, which focuses on the quantitative prediction of lithology and pore geofluid properties. In this study, we have proposed one simultaneous stochastic inversion approach for discrete fluid-facies and continuous geofluid parameters based on differential evolution Markov Chain Monte Carlo (DE-MCMC) algorithm and Gaussian mixture model. The Gaussian mixture model influenced by reservoir pore fluid-facies is assumed to be the prior probability density distribution of elastic parameters in Bayesian inference. The likelihood probability function is first established with time-frequency joint domain seismic data. Then, the standard posterior probability distribution expressed with a multi-dimensional Gaussian mixture model is derived. Due to the superiority of multi-solution global optimization in DE-MCMC model, the DE-MCMC model is first introduced into the optimization of mixture posterior PDF. The fluid-facies is predicted effectively through the posterior probabilities of discrete facies. The main advantage of DE-MCMC AVO inversion is that the probability distributions of estimated parameters can be easily built based on the multiple-solutions optimization. Thus, the uncertainty and reliability of geofluid parameters and fluid-facies are assessed effectively. Model and field application examples demonstrate the feasibility and stability of the proposed methodology evidently.
