All rocks are anisotropic to some degree. Sedimentary basins worldwide comprise 80% of shales. Shales are anisotropic usually with vertically transverse isotropy (VTI). The rocks in many of the basins of the Asia Pacific region have been measured to have strong anisotropy...
One of the key exploration risks along the margin is to understand the pressure regime. This understanding is both vital for well design but also for de-risking of traps for hydraulic breach for instance.
Clearly pressure prediction h...
Sweet spot identification for source rocks involve detection of organic rich, high porous facies combined with brittleness, which is prone for hydraulic fracturing for optimized production. The current study focuses on identifying the best shale out of three shale plays (...
Successful exploitation of unconventional shale reservoirs depend on the integration of multi-disciplines between geoscientists and engineers. Here, we applied an integrated approach for Green River and Irati shales characterization. Understanding of micro-structu...
Seismic data are uniformly sampled images of geologic structures, and they spatially cover a big area as opposed to well log data, which are often scattered sparsely within the seismic cube. A common strategy to extend the coverage of the well log data is to int...
Exploration initiatives over the past 4 years have led to renewed interest in exploration in the Slope and Deep Water Regions of the Flemish Cap and Labrador Sea areas, offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. New multi-client regional 2D seismic su...
