Well tie for broadband seismic data

The seismic industry is increasingly acquiring broadband data in order to reap the benefits of extra low- and high-frequency contents. At the low end, as the sharp low-cut decay gets closer to zero frequency, it becomes harder for a well tie to estimate the low-frequency response... Read More.

Thermal Rock Physics Modelling of Shales

Thermal oil production introduces elevated temperatures in the subsurface, leading to deformation of the porous matrix. In the near-borehole environment, an elevated temperature in shales can cause a pore pressure pulse that diffuses outward from the wellbore, creating a measurea... Read More.

Facies Classifications for Seismic Inversion

Identifying facies for classification for a seismic inversion project is an important step where one balances computational effort and the quality of the results. We propose a new measure to quantify the suitability of a given facies partition based on information theory. The res... Read More.

The role of the Geoscientist in Decommissioning

The new Oil and Gas Authority and the Oil and Gas UK have set out clear guidelines for the decommissioning of oil and gas infrastructure and wells following the effect of low oil prices on our maturing North Sea reserves. There have been conferences and presentations on the subje... Read More.

Understanding Uncertainty in Pore Pressure Prediction

Robust pre-drill pore pressure models are typically obtained using offset well data and seismic velocities. Recent feedback from the industry seems to suggest that there is no general consensus on the impact of uncertainty on well design in terms of risks and costs, and the metho... Read More.
