Create a common reservoir model
By integrating the understanding of both practices mentioned above, Ikon Science is able to fine tune the reservoir model to improve and better match the true production profiles of the reservoir.
The aim of time-lapse work is to get the forward modelled predictions to match the feedback from the time-lapse predictions. This is often referred to as 'closing the loop.'
Predict a valuable survey date
Our 4D forward seismic modelling workflow will identify if and when in a field's life it is worth acquiring a repeat seismic survey.
Modelling the time-lapse 4D effects driven by the dynamic simulation and constrained by appropriate rock physics models provides the most advance and realistic insight into what is going to occur in the future.
This feasibility service can advise development teams with the optimal dates to carry out a monitor survey. The exercise is useful for saving money on wasted surveys, for example, when no significant differences would be seen.
