The process begins with a detailed petrophysical analysis and well log calibration. Investigating the Internal Fabric of VSP data with Attribute Analysis and Unsupervised Machine Learning. Seismic, well logs and other input data are each represented as a probability density function (PDF), which provides a geostatistical description based on histograms and variograms. Stephen, K., MacBeth, C., "Reducing Reservoir Prediction Uncertainty by Updating a Stochastic Model Using Seismic History Matching", SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering, December 2008. Well log information is used in the inversion process to derive wavelets, supply the low frequency component not present in the seismic data, and to verify and analyze the final results. As a result, geoscientists are more successful in reconstructing both the overall structure and the fine details of the reservoir. The posterior PDF is then input to a Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm to generate realistic models of impedance and lithofacies, which are then used to co-simulate rock properties such as porosity. repeat email.

Ocean. All modern seismic inversion methods require seismic data and a wavelet estimated from the data. Wavelet amplitude and phase spectra are estimated statistically from either the seismic data alone or from a combination of seismic data and well control using wells with available sonic and density curves. Wang, X., Wu, S., Xu, N., Zhang, G., "Estimation of Gas Hydrate Saturation Using Constrained Sparse Spike Inversion: Case Study from the Northern South China Sea", Terr. The Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG) is a learned society of professional earth scientists specialising in the practical application of the principles of physics and mathematics to solve problems in a broad range of geological situations. It is thus possible to exploit "informational synergies" to retrieve details that deterministic inversion techniques blur out or omit.

EAGE Workshop on Quantifying Uncertainty in Depth Imaging www.eage.org. Seismic data may be inspected and interpreted on its own without inversion, but this does not provide the most detailed view of the subsurface and can be misleading under certain conditions. In this last Industry Insights article for 2020, Andrew Long takes a look at ocean bottom node themes based on presentations at this year's EAGE conference. Final elastic-parameter models optimally reproduce the input seismic, as this is part of the seismic inversion optimization. 213–214. Reflection coefficients are calculated from P-sonic, S-sonic and density logs using the Zoeppritz equations. De Barros, Dietrich, M., "Full Waveform Inversion of Shot Gathers in Terms of Poro-elastic Parameters", EAGE, London, June 2007. Together these define the chances of a particular value at a particular location, and the expected geological scale and composition throughout the modeled area. The inferred shape of the seismic wavelet may strongly influence the seismic inversion results and, thus, subsequent assessments of the reservoir quality. Even with the best model, some uncertainty remains. iOS Android Huawei Choose language Current version v.456. The oil and gas industry uses many jargons, acronyms and abbreviations. The results are quality controlled by direct comparison of the inverted rock property volumes against the well logs. Because all output models match all input data, uncertainty can be quantitatively assessed to determine the range of reservoir possibilities within the constraining data. Stochastic inversions address this problem by generating a range of plausible solutions, which can then be narrowed through testing for best fit against various measurements (including production data). The quality of the inversion result is dependent upon the extracted seismic wavelets. Portugal. Deutsch, C., Geostatistical Reservoir Modeling, New York: Oxford University Press, 2002, 376 pages. Accurate wavelet estimation requires the accurate tie of the impedance log to the seismic. Shallow Shear Wave Reflections: What Can the Amplitude Tell Us and How? Minor edits and "stretch and squeeze" may be applied to the well to better align the events. First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion 26-28 October 2020, Porto, Portugal | Online 3. In many geological environments acoustic impedance has a strong relationship to petrophysical properties such as porosity, lithology, and fluid saturation. first name. These surveys record sound waves which have traveled through the layers of rock and fluid in the earth. For each input partial stack, a unique wavelet is estimated. This helps improve discrimination between lithology, porosity and fluid effects. Pre-stack inversion is often used when post-stack inversion fails to sufficiently differentiate geologic features with similar P-impedance signatures. View event. Often a feasibility study using the wells logs will indicate whether separation of the desired lithotype can be achieved with P-impedance alone or whether S-impedance is also required. An important part in the inversion procedure is the estimation of the seismic wavelets. [6] Simultaneous inversion solves for S-impedance and density, in addition to P-impedance. This is done by deriving unique wavelets for each input-partial stack. Individual PDFs are merged using bayesian inference techniques, resulting in a posterior PDF conditioned to the whole data set. Inversion provides a way to visualize and analyze data at Next, these are used with the full Zoeppritz equations (or approximations, such as Aki–Richards, for some algorithms) to find band-limited elastic reflectivities. Well logs are first conditioned and edited to ensure there is a suitable relationship between impedance logs and the desired properties. 5/6, 2006, pp. With in-depth features, Expatica brings the international community closer together. Next, horizon and log data are used to construct the stratigraphic framework for the statistical information to build the models. The output model (realizations) are consistent with well log information, AVO seismic data, and honor rock property relationships found in the wells. The model generated is of higher quality, and does not suffer from tuning and interference caused by the wavelet. Acoustic impedance is used to produce more accurate and detailed structural and stratigraphic interpretations than can be obtained from seismic (or seismic attribute) interpretation. Chakrabarty, C., Fossey, J., Renard, G., Gadelle, C. "SAGD Process in the East Senlac Field: From Reservoir Characterization to Field Application", No. Most often these are lithology or seismic facies cubes and predicted lithology or facies probabilities, but other outputs are also possible. To ensure quality, the inversion result is convolved with the wavelet to produce synthetic seismic traces which are compared to the original seismic.[4]. your email. The elastic parameters themselves can be directly constrained during the seismic inversion and rock-physics relationships can be applied, constraining pairs of elastic parameters to each other. These processes are typically iterated until a model emerges that matches all information. The more advanced algorithms use the full Knott–Zoeppritz equations and there is full allowance for amplitude and phase variations with offset. Inversion includes both seismic field data and well data, where well data serves to add the high frequency below the seismic band and to constrain the inversion. Pendrel, J., Dickson, T., "Simultaneous AVO Inversion to P Impedance and Vp/Vs", SEG. The simultaneous inversion algorithm takes multiple angle-stacked seismic data sets and generates three elastic parameter volumes as output. Well logs are first conditioned and edited to ensure there is a suitable relationship between impedance logs and the desired properties. One constraint can control the relation between density and compressional velocity; this is necessary when the range of angles is not great enough to be diagnostic of density. The algorithm determines the weighting of each data source, eliminating potential bias. Request PDF | On Jan 1, 2020, G. Rizzuti and others published Time-Domain Wavefield Reconstruction Inversion for Large-Scale Seismics | Find, read and cite all the research you need on ResearchGate Create First Post . Expatica is the international community’s online home away from home. Seismic inversion may be pre- or post-stack, deterministic, random or geostatistical; it typically includes other reservoir measurements such as well logs and cores.[1]. 17, No. She has 20 years of experience in the Oil& Gas industry, specialized mostly in geological modeling, but is experienced also in seismic inversion. Seismic data is band-limited, reducing resolution and quality. This will dictate whether a pre- or post-stack inversion is needed. The algorithm also simultaneously produces elastic properties (P-impedance, S-impedance and density) and lithology volumes, instead of sequentially solving for lithology first and then populating the cell with impedance and density values. The EAGE believes that a poster presentation is equal in importance to an … Porto. Well logs are first conditioned and edited to ensure there is a suitable relationship between impedance logs and the desired properties. Analysis of multiple realizations produces mean (P50) property cubes or maps. Title: First Break January 2021 - Land Seismic, Author: EAGE, Name: First Break January 2021 - Land Seismic, Length: 116 pages, Page: 1, Published: 2020-12-30 Issuu company logo Issuu Amplitude versus offset (AVO) (AVA) geostatistical inversion incorporates simultaneous AVO (AVA) inversion into the geostatistical inversion algorithm so high resolution, geostatistics, and AVO may be attained in a single method. Seismic inversion is a key process used extensively in exploration, production and geohazard studies. The amplitude and frequency of these waves can be estimated so that any side-lobe and tuning effects[2] introduced by the wavelet may be removed. Watson, I., Lines, L., "Seismic Inversion at Pike’s Peak, Saskatchewan", CREWES Research Report, Volume 12, 2000. The First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion will be an event of interest to geoscientists working in many roles in industry and academia. 4, 799–813, December 2006. Russell, B., Hampson, D., "The Old and the New in Seismic Inversion", CSEG Recorder, December 2006, pp. Simultaneous Inversion (SI) is a pre-stack method that uses multiple offset or angle seismic sub-stacks and their associated wavelets as input; it generates P-impedance, S-impedance and density as outputs (although the density output resolution is rarely as high as the impedances). inversion first derives models of impedances (from the seismic) given facies, and then facies (from the 81st EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2019 3-6 June 2019, London, UK Initial inversions are often run with relaxed constraints, starting with the seismic and then adding limited-trend data from the wells.

[5] High frequency can be derived from well control or geostatistical analysis. Register now online for the discount price!! Histograms and variograms are generated for each stratigraphic layer and lithology, and preliminary simulations are run on small areas. Uncertainty can be estimated using random seeds to generate a range of realizations. Highly detailed petrophysical models are generated, ready for input to reservoir-flow simulation. Stay Connected - The EAGE Newsletter . CSSI transforms seismic data to a pseudo-acoustic impedance log at every trace. It is also important to ensure that the wavelet matches the phase and frequency of seismic data. Drawing heavily on contributions from researchers in the oil and mineral exploration industries, the journal has a very practical slant. You will receive an confirmation by email. Examination of vertical seismic profile (VSP) data with unsupervised machine learning technology is a rigorous way to compare the fabric of down-going, illuminating, P and S wavefields with the fabric of up-going reflections and interbed multiples created by these wavefields. First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion www.eage.org. While many geologic features can express similar P-impedance characteristics, few will share combined P-impedance and S-impedance traits (allowing improved separation and clarity). This is accomplished by computing a filter that best shapes the angle-dependent well log reflection coefficients in the region of interest to the corresponding offset stack at the well locations. The lowest frequencies from the inversion are replaced with information from the geologic model since they are poorly constrained by the seismic data. At the heart of EAGE is our mission to connect geoscientists and engineers with a close-knit community of professionals and students. When applied in global mode a spatial control term is added to the objective function and large subsets of traces are inverted simultaneously. This makes comparison of the filtered well logs and the inversion outputs at these locations a natural quality control. Call for papers Closed. Accurate wavelet estimation is critical to the success of any seismic inversion. All models, partial stacks and wavelets are input to a single inversion algorithm —enabling inversion to effectively compensate for offset-dependent phase, bandwidth, tuning and NMO stretch effects.[7]. We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us. Typically, a reflection coefficient series from a well within the boundaries of the seismic survey is used to estimate the wavelet phase and frequency. The calibration process replaces unreliable and missing sonic and density measurements with synthesized values from calibrated petrophysical and rock-physics models. The AVA geostatistical inversion is then run to generate the desired number of realizations, which match all the input data. Sci., Vol. Tickets to the "i am not tourist" Job Fair for Internationals are available at the discounted price of EUR 12.50 on line and EUR 17.50 at the door.

This provides a rough overview of the reservoir in an unbiased manner. Wavelet analysis is conducted by extracting a filter from each of the seismic volumes using the well elastic (angle or offset) impedance as the desired output. A seismic source is a device that generates controlled seismic energy used to perform both reflection and refraction seismic surveys. The First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion will be an event of interest to geoscientists working in many roles in industry and academia. Geostatistical inversion integrates high resolution well data with low resolution 3-D seismic, and provides a model with high vertical detail near and away from well control.
