Presented paper addresses to a problem of the seismic analysis of fault damage zones. Statistical approach is applied by employing fault facies modelling technique which allows the detailed description of complex structure of fault damage zone. At that, the geometry and spatial distribution of petrophysical properties inside fault zone are described by categorical random fields. The comparison of main statistical properties of original facies model and the corresponding seismic images is carried out. Our study allows to estimate the resolution accuracy of seismic modelling for fault zone characterization.
