Depth domain facies based inversion

Ask geoscientists, drillers, etc., and they will tell you, unsurprisingly, that the subsurface is modelled and drilled in Depth. However, whether the seismic is (two-way) Time or Depth indexed, seismic inversion products (impedances) are ubiquitously derived in Time, as convoluti... 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.

Seismic inversion of a carbonate buildup: A case study

The information within seismic data is band limited and angle limited. Together with the particular physics and geology of carbonate rocks, this imposes limitations on how accurately we can predict the presence of hydrocarbons in carbonates, map the top carbonate, and characteriz... Read More.
