In addition, 4D seismic is used to update seismic interpretation, provide a better understanding of internal architecture of the reservoirs units, and, thereby, yield a morerobust reservoir model.

The 4D seismic in this field is a key tool for field-development optimization and reservoir management.

Description Time-lapse seismic in reservoir management EPUB

Abstract. “This book, prepared for use with the first SEG / EAGE Distinguished Instructor Short Course, discusses Â"time-lapse seismicÂ" and enables geoscienti. Time-Lapse Seismic in Reservoir Management by Ian Jack.

This course is intended to appeal to a wide audience (most attendees are geophysicists, but a significant number are geologists, reservoir engineers and petrophysicists).

How 4D seismic data can be used to impact reservoir management. How 4D seismic data have been applied in a number of case studies.

Recent advances in time-lapse geophysical technology. Who should attend. 4D seismic interpretation is inherently integrative, drawing upon geophysical, geological, and reservoir engineering data and concepts.

Time Lapse Approach to Monitoring Oil, Gas, and CO2 Storage by Seismic Methods delivers a new technology to geoscientists, well logging experts, and reservoir engineers, giving them a new basis on which to influence decisions on oil and gas reservoir management. Time-lapse (4D) seismic provides a vital tool for reservoir monitoring and Time-lapse seismic in reservoir management book serves as a multi-disciplinary platform for efficient reservoir development.

Reservoir management requires an all-round identification, quantification and management of reservoir uncertainties, which stem from limited and sparse reservoir data and the use of models. Practical Applications of Time-lapse Seismic Data (SEG Distinguished Instructor Series No.

16) shows how 4D seismic data are used for reservoir surveillance, how they provide valuable insight on dynamic reservoir properties such as fluid saturation, pressure, and temperature, and how they add value to reservoir management.

Time-lapse (4D) seismic analyses can be used to better understand subsurface fluid flow behaviour, improve hydrocarbon reservoir performance, and assist in reservoir management decisions.

petrophysical properties of the reservoir rock. Thus reservoir monitoring by repeated seismic or time lapse surveys can help in reducing the uncertainties attached to reservoir models. Reservoir models, optimally constrained to seismic response as well as flow response can provide a better description of the reservoir and thus more reliable.

Seismic Amplitude is an invaluable day-to-day tool for graduate students and industry professionals in geology, geophysics, petrophysics, reservoir engineering, and all subsurface disciplines making regular use of seismic by:   For dynamic reservoir characterization, hydromechanical reservoir models are built using field observations and used to simulate the stress and strain changes over time, where time-lapse seismic observations as well as reservoir engineering data are applied to calibrate and update the hydromechanical by: 3.

Time-lapse seismic data, for example, help to determine reservoir changes that occur over time and can be used as a new dimension in history matching since they contain information about fluid movement and pressure changes between and beyond the well.

Online Learning of 4D Seismic Data for Real Time Reservoir Management by Dr. Mariette Awad. Today, 4D or time-lapse seismic programs are an essential part of the global reservoir management strategy for many companies.

Developments in 4D seismic technology Two principal factors influence whether we can successfully detect the 4D signal in the reservoir and the. The Edinburgh Time Lapse Project (ETLP) is an industrially-sponsored, university-based research consortium specialising in the development and application of analysis tools for engineering-consistent quantitative interpretation of 4D seismic data.

Due to its location in a Petroleum Engineering Institute, the consortium has a strong emphasis on. The way that time-lapse seismic studies are analyzed has an important effect on the results. In general, time-lapse seismic studies can be integrated both qualitatively and quantitatively with reservoir engineering studies.

In qualitative analysis the normal approach is to visually interpret the time-lapse seismic results to track the anomalies. The deformation of the reservoir layers is coupled to the adjacent rocks and leads to changes in the stress and strain fields that extend a great distance away from the reservoir.

Time-lapse seismic measurements through these rocks show large variations that are useful for monitoring the distribution of deformation within the reservoir. Book Editor(s): Keith R. Holdaway. Search for more papers by this author Time‐Lapse Seismic Exploration.
