We first review some of the definitions of “brittleness index” (BI) that have been used in the recent literature concerning oil and gas exploration and production from low porosity low permeability rocks. We will then argue that the definitions ...
Seismic inversion is routinely used in the delineation of drillable leads and prospects; however the algorithms and techniques that are most widely used today suffer from a number of shortcomings. In this paper we demonstrate how a new...
This paper focuses on the North Sea Palaeocene, in particular the Forties Formation, where the Shelley 22/2 and 22/3 and Huntington 22/14 fields are present. It highlights the detailed and careful approaches required to establish the hydrodynamic spill point (inde...
Broadband seismic data will only deliver its full reservoir value if a quantitative interpretation is possible; I discuss some challenges and solutions to achieve this goal. Enabling a quantitative Broadband well-tie is a vital and the fundamental part of ...
The Northern Carnarvon Basin has a complicated geological history, with numerous sub‐basins containing varying formation thicknesses, lithology types, and structural histories, which make pre‐drill pore pressure prediction problematic. This peer-reviewed paper foc...
Drilling conditions involving high mean and deviatory stresses and natural fractures in the Cooper Basin pose difficulties in drilling and introduce wellbore rugosities, leaving a damaged wellbore subject to a stress cage effect. Fracture initi...
