Many resources lay hidden within complex geologies. Salt and basalt frustrate traditional survey techniques. Fractures can aid flow or obstruct it. Geological expertise can predict the nature of the play. Innovative techniques for surveying, processing and interpreting data reveal the detail.
Fractures control production in naturally fractured reservoirs. Characterize them to determine the best development strategies. Fractures in the overburden distort the view. Compensate for that with the latest seismic techniques. Fractures affect shale production. Understand the effect of rock properties and stresses for better completions.
There are no more easy plays. Turbidite channels, sand injectites, tight oil, sub-salt, sub-basalt all challenge traditional survey methods and analysis. To visualize today’s plays, ingenuity is required. Better illumination, specialty processing and sophisticated reservoir characterization all play a role.
Subsalt hydrocarbons remain technically challenging and high-risk, especially in deep water. Drilling through this high-pressure, unstable geology is hazardous without better information. Now, with full-azimuth seismic, low-frequency recording and gravity data, a 3D view of the salt structure is possible.
Reveal intricate velocity details for the clearest images. Harness seismic low frequencies from BroadSeis, StagSeis, seabed and land data.
