A Day in the Life of a Geoscientist: The Role of Porosity in Permeability Prediction and Modeling Deterministic Models and Data Mining

Posted by Samhita Shah on Feb 19, 2019 2:05:46 PM RSS Share Post

Articles that state the difficulty of establishing an accurate and reliable relationship between porosity and permeability, in order to create a continuous permeability profile in wells, abound in the Petrophysical literature devoted to carbonate reservoirs. To try and alleviate this difficulty, new numerical methods or data mining techniques are often proposed. However, despite the necessity of interpreting data in terms of causation, those papers hardly discuss and explore, and even less so, explain, the origins of this difficulty. Therefore, questioning the ways in which these techniques are used is as legitimate as examining if they are really effective.

Webinar: Model-based Tomography for Assessing Subsurface Structural Uncertainty

Posted by Samhita Shah on Jan 31, 2019 2:25:14 PM RSS Share Post

Subsurface structural uncertainty can be sourced to errors in migration velocity models, which directly affect the position of migrated events.  One of the reasons for these errors is limitations in the resolution of seismic data. These limitations result in non-unique velocity models, where multiple models can equally flatten the events in common image gathers.  The resultant subsurface structural uncertainty can have a direct impact on reservoir reserves estimation, spill point and closures, and well planning across fault zones.
