Seismic and Reservoir Data: Key Components of the Big Picture
Reservoir Characterization and Modeling in Producing Fields
The Value of 4D Seismic Visualized With Reservoir Models
- determine why certain wells are producing while others are underperforming in comparison to the predicted output of reservoir simulation models.
- accurately identify the extent and characteristics of depleted and unswept zones.
- update or fine-tune reservoir simulation models per changes observed in recent seismic studies to more accurately forecast production.
- identify the likelihood of potential problems such as increased water cut and subsidence.
By using 4D seismic analysis to adjust reservoir models, engineers gain a better understanding of a reservoir’s dynamic behavior and can recommend appropriate strategies to increase the recovery factor of a reservoir or extend production for a few years to maximize return on investment.
CoViz 4D Facilitates Visualization
CoViz 4D, a data visualization analytics software from Dynamic Graphics, Inc., gives geologists, geophysicists, and reservoir engineers the ability to easily access and combine all relevant data associated with subsurface environments. Powerful analytic capabilities enable users to explore data relationships, analyze the accuracy of depth conversion of 3D seismic, and visualize seismic well ties and velocity models to facilitate decisions that positively impact profit and reduce operational risk.
