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.

Workflows Using Machine Learning Boost Interpretation Confidence

Posted by Lorena Guerra on Oct 25, 2018 11:39:47 AM RSS Share Post

It is virtually impossible for the human mind to integrate and extract, in a timely manner, the huge amounts of subsurface data now available to interpreters.  The newest version of SeisEarth (Paradigm 18) uses several state-of-the-art Machine Learning-based technologies to extract unprecedented amounts of information from vast and heterogeneous data sources for use in geological classifications, rock property predictions, and anomaly detections. These technologies are offered in the form of automated and easy-to-use guided workflows embedded in the integrated interpretation platform.
