Full-Azimuth Differential Seismic Facies Analysis for Predicting Oil-Saturated Fractured Reservoirs
This work presents a novel technology for azimuth-dependent facies analysis (Facies Analysis versus Azimuth – FACIVAZ) to improve the prediction of hydrocarbon-saturated permeable fractures in terrigenous carbonate reservoirs. The analysis is performed in the depth domain along high-resolution, full-azimuth, angle domain common image gathers created by the Aspen EarthStudy 360™ imaging system.
Improved Seismic Images through Full-Azimuth Depth Migration
A seismic survey was conducted in a production oil field in Serbia. It was assumed that significant reserves still exist in the field, as well as additional undiscovered reservoirs. An advanced seismic imaging technology was required to further characterize the existing reservoirs and identify and characterize new ones.
CRAM Gathers Enhance 3-D Inversion
Elastic inversion from common reflection angle migration (CRAM) gathers can accurately capture lithology-driven lateral variations in reservoir properties, particularly in a strongly deformed and faulted geologic environment.
Geologically Constrained Velocity Models Improve Field Development
Seismic processing, imaging, characterization and interpretation are preferably executed as a continuous workflow to maintain seismic data integrity and consistencies. Geophysicists must construct a workflow from hundreds of applications and algorithms, and thousands of parameters, to achieve desired project outcomes. Almost all these applications and algorithms are based on assumptions about the underlying geological model complexity and subsurface conditions.
Article by Oil Review: Meeting Business Goals with Autonomous Agents
In today’s VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) marketplace, it is important for manufacturers to identify and understand the impact of impeding disruptions and minimize safety, while at the same time meeting their profit objectives. In this Oil Review-Middle East article, AspenTech APM Sr. Director Mike Brooks explains how Autonomous Agents can help a plant identify unexpected events and processes that are out of the norm.
A Sense of What is to Come
In the upstream oil and gas industry, multiphase metering is a central part of many processes, such as reservoir management, field development, operational control, flow assurance and production allocation. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems unlock online production monitoring and allow field operators to monitor their wells continuously and in real-time.
