Meeting the Decommissioning Challenge

How can you safely reduce the biggest expense in decommissioning? Decommissioning is a major project that offers only the downside of huge costs and risks. What can the industry do to make the process safer, more secure and cheaper? So far, technology has driven savings in top... Read More.

Extending Field Life and Maximising Economic Recovery

Governments around the world are encouraging operators to improve efficiencies, decrease operational costs, increase production and extend field life and they’re revising their tax-take to promote that. The result is that mature basins still offer the chance of attractive... Read More.

Seal Breach in the Danish Sector, North Sea

Regional effective stress maps were produced for key Jurassic horizons (see Figure 3) as well as BCU and Base Chalk. Naturally, the effective stress maps reflect the depth structure in each overpressure cell to some extent, while the general level of effective stress varies from ... Read More.

Optimisation of Pre-stack Scaling Prior to Seismic Inversion

When interpreting seismic reflection data, a common problem is the uncertainty in the representation of a reflecting interface — is it a peak, zero crossing or trough? This uncertainty itself leads to different qualitative interpretations by different geoscientists and ulti... Read More.

Structural Dip, Migration and Quantitative Interpretation,

1D convolution has been one of the key concepts of seismic acquisition, processing, inversion and quantitative interpretation (QI) developments. Convolutional modelling states that the migrated image is linearly related to the reflection coefficients which are then approximately ... Read More.
