4D Seismic - Challenges

Thoughts Seismic monitoring is an important technology in the effective exploitation of reservoirs in existing fields. The successful further uptake of 4D technology requires extensive training of dedicated personnel,while the biggest challenge in 4D technology development is to produce high vertical resolution 4D images of production.

4D Seismic - Status

Thoughts Time-lapse seismic is now a proven technology for monitoring fluid movements and identifying undrained compartments in thick offshore clastic reservoirs. Several challenges still exist, however, in particular the use of the technology for carbonate and thin-bedded clastic reservoirs.

Exorcising the Ghosts - the New Streamer Technology La

Thoughts PgS claims to have built a marine seismic streamer that is capable of removing receiver ghosts, thereby enhancing frequency bandwidth and seismic resolution. if proven by full-scale field tests, this could be a major break-through in seismic acquisition.

Immersive Visualization Center

Thoughts Groundbreaking technology finds a home in the Department with the University's new Immersive Visualization Center.

Geoscientists have always had good imaginations. After all, reconstructing 2D seismic maps into a useful picture of nature can pose quite a challenge. But soon geoscientists, students and other researchers at Texas A&M will be able to see their research problems from the inside out, simply by stepping into the University's new 1,700-square-foot Immersive Visualization Center (IVC) located in the Michel T. Halbouty…

Petroleum Seismology

Thoughts There is nothing more important in the education of seismologists than developing their understanding of and intuition about how seismic waves propagate in the ground. We have constructed simulators of wave propagation to try to develop such intuition. The success of this tool has been tremendous; students can create their own geological models of the subsurface and watch and analyze waves that propagate through their model. Complex phenomena of wave propagation in the ground, such as shear wave-splitting which is critical in…

The Golden Zone

Thoughts A source rock, a reservoir rock, a cap rock, a trap, and adequate heat are the five essential requirements for a commercial accumulation of petroleum. Heat is required to generate the petroleum from kerogen disseminated within the source bed. The relative importance of heat, time, and pressure is still a matter of debate. It is generally agreed, however, that there are certain critical temperature boundaries: If the temperature is less than 60 C, the source rock is immature; if the temperature ranges between 60 C and 120 C, oil…
