Inversion provides a way to visualize and analyze data at Geostatistical inversion integrates data from many sources and creates models that have greater resolution than the original seismic, match known geological patterns, and can be used for risk assessment and reduction. 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 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. 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.  Simultaneous inversion solves for S-impedance and density, in addition to P-impedance. 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. These processes are typically iterated until a model emerges that matches all information. 5/6, 2006, pp. She made several scientific presentations in internal and international conferences and is a member of SPE, SEG and EAGE. Although the order presented reflects advances in inversion techniques over the past 20 years, each grouping still has valid uses in particular projects or as part of a larger workflow. repeat email. Francis, A., "Limitations of Deterministic and Advantages of Stochastic Seismic Inversion", CSEG Recorder, February 2005, pp. First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion 26-28 October 2020, Porto, Portugal | Online 3. 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. Even with the best model, some uncertainty remains. 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). 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. This will dictate whether a pre- or post-stack inversion is needed. This approximate result is then improved in a final inversion for P-impedance, S-impedance and density, subject to various hard and soft constraints. In many geological environments acoustic impedance has a strong relationship to petrophysical properties such as porosity, lithology, and fluid saturation. Sci., Vol. Well logs are first conditioned and edited to ensure there is a suitable relationship between impedance logs and the desired properties. . The EAGE believes that a poster presentation is equal in importance to an … Uncertainty can be estimated using random seeds to generate a range of realizations. First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion www.eage.org. This provides a rough overview of the reservoir in an unbiased manner. Obviously, this list is not anywhere near exhaustive or definitive, but this should be the most comprehensive list anywhere. Because all output models match all input data, uncertainty can be quantitatively assessed to determine the range of reservoir possibilities within the constraining data. Reservoir 3-D bodies of hydrocarbon-bearing units are captured with their corresponding rock properties, and the uncertainty in reservoir size and properties is quantified. Taking this approach speeds the process and improves accuracy. You will receive an confirmation by email. Geostatistics differs from statistics in that it recognizes that only certain outcomes are geologically plausible. Well logs are first conditioned and edited to ensure there is a suitable relationship between impedance logs and the desired properties. A must-read for English-speaking expatriates and internationals across Europe, Expatica provides a tailored local news service and essential information on living, working, and moving to your country of choice.

It is critical at this point to evaluate the accuracy of the tie between the inversion results and the wells, and between the original seismic data and the derived synthetics. The First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion will be an event of interest to geoscientists working in many roles in industry and academia. To extend the frequency band available, low-frequency data is derived from log data, pre-stack depth or time migrated velocities and/or a regional gradient. Next, these are used with the full Zoeppritz equations (or approximations, such as Aki–Richards, for some algorithms) to find band-limited elastic reflectivities. Highly detailed petrophysical models are generated, ready for input to reservoir-flow simulation.

The calibration process replaces unreliable and missing sonic and density measurements with synthesized values from calibrated petrophysical and rock-physics models. Conference: 81st EAGE Conference and Exhibition 2019; … Ocean. Caulfield, C., Feroci, M., Yakiwchuk, K. "Seismic Inversion for Horizontal Well Planning in Western Saskatchewan", Evolving Geophysics Through Innovation, pp. To further adapt the algorithm mathematics to the behavior of real rocks in the subsurface, some CSSI algorithms use a mixed-norm approach and allow a weighting factor between minimizing the sparsity of the solution and minimizing the misfit of the residual traces. 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. Stay Connected - The EAGE Newsletter . After the seismic wavelet is estimated, it is used to estimate seismic reflection coefficients in the seismic inversion. The use of multiple-angle-stack seismic volumes in AVA geostatistical inversion enables further evaluation of elastic rock properties and probable lithology or seismic facies and fluid distributions with greater accuracy. Initial inversions are often run with relaxed constraints, starting with the seismic and then adding limited-trend data from the wells. This page was last edited on 15 January 2021, at 08:05. 17, No. Once the wavelet is identified, seismic inversion computes a synthetic log for every seismic trace. This generates reservoir models with geologically-plausible shapes, and provides a clear quantification of uncertainty to assess risk. An important part in the inversion procedure is the estimation of the seismic wavelets. The logs are then converted to time, filtered to approximate the seismic bandwidth and edited for borehole effects, balanced and classified by quality. The simultaneous inversion algorithm takes multiple angle-stacked seismic data sets and generates three elastic parameter volumes as output. Malaysia. Wavelets are extracted individually for each well. When the estimated (constant) phase of the statistical wavelet is consistent with the final result, the wavelet estimation converges more quickly than when starting with a zero phase assumption. 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. Portugal. Histograms and variograms are generated for each stratigraphic layer and lithology, and preliminary simulations are run on small areas. All modern seismic inversion methods require seismic data and a wavelet estimated from the data. 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. The lowest frequencies from the inversion are replaced with information from the geologic model since they are poorly constrained by the seismic data. A seismic source is a device that generates controlled seismic energy used to perform both reflection and refraction seismic surveys. Register now online for the discount price!! Pendrel, J., "Seismic Inversion—The Best Tool for Reservoir Characterization", CSEG Recorder. Errors in well tie can result in phase or frequency artifacts in the wavelet estimation. 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 The amplitude and frequency of these waves can be estimated so that any side-lobe and tuning effects introduced by the wavelet may be removed. Unlike seismic reflection data (which is an interface property) AI is a rock property. 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. Anomaly K prospect was first identified following the detection of a potential bedrock conductor from an airborne EM survey in December 2018. 26-28 Oct. EAGE Workshop on Quantifying Uncertainty in Depth Imaging www.eage.org. The output model (realizations) are consistent with well log information, AVO seismic data, and honor rock property relationships found in the wells. 213–214. As a result, geoscientists are more successful in reconstructing both the overall structure and the fine details of the reservoir. Vargas-Meleza, L., Megchun, J., Vazquez, G., "Petrophysical Properties Estimation by Integrating AVO, Seismic Inversion and Multiattribute Analysis in a 3-D Volume of Playuela, Veracruz", AAPG International Conference: October 24–27, 2004, Cancun, Mexico. Contreras, A., Torres-Verdin, C., Chesters, W., Kvien, K., Globe, M., "Joint Stochastic Inversion of Petrophysical Logs and 3D Pre-Stack Seismic Data to Assess the Spatial Continuity of Fluid Units Away from Wells: Application to a Gulf-of-Mexico Deepwater Hydrocarbon Reservoir", SPWLA 46th Annual Logging Symposium, June 26–29, 2005. She has 20 years of experience in the Oil& Gas industry, specialized mostly in geological modeling, but is experienced also in seismic inversion. Selected lithology and facies cubes are also generated for P15 and P85 probabilities (for example). This assumes a limited number of reflection coefficients, with larger amplitude. Seismic data is band-limited, reducing resolution and quality. An example of a post-stack seismic resolution inversion technique is the Constrained Sparse-Spike Inversion (CSSI). Each of these components can be inspected for its contribution to the solution and to check the results for quality. Since a different wavelet is computed for each offset volume, compensation is automatically done for offset-dependent bandwidth, scaling and tuning effects. 4, 799–813, December 2006. The AVA geostatistical inversion is then run to generate the desired number of realizations, which match all the input data. This helps improve discrimination between lithology, porosity and fluid effects. The results are quality controlled by direct comparison of the inverted rock property volumes against the well logs. Seismic inversion is a key process used extensively in exploration, production and geohazard studies. De Barros, Dietrich, M., "Full Waveform Inversion of Shot Gathers in Terms of Poro-elastic Parameters", EAGE, London, June 2007. AVA geostatistical inversion software uses leading-edge geostatistical techniques, including Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) sampling and pluri-Gaussian lithology modeling. 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. 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. The algorithm determines the weighting of each data source, eliminating potential bias. At the heart of EAGE is our mission to connect geoscientists and engineers with a close-knit community of professionals and students. For each input partial stack, a unique wavelet is estimated. We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us. These surveys record sound waves which have traveled through the layers of rock and fluid in the earth. The impact of seismic inversion methodology on rock property prediction Authors Mariana Martinho , Timothy Tylor‐Jones and Leonardo Azevedo Improved controlled source audio‐frequency magnetotelluric method apparent resistivity pseudo‐sections based on the frequency and frequency–spatial gradients of electromagnetic fields The model generated is of higher quality, and does not suffer from tuning and interference caused by the wavelet. 19–22 First HGS and EAGE Conference on Latin America. It is thus possible to exploit "informational synergies" to retrieve details that deterministic inversion techniques blur out or omit. Atmos. Well logs are first conditioned and edited to ensure there is a suitable relationship between impedance logs and the desired properties. Final elastic-parameter models optimally reproduce the input seismic, as this is part of the seismic inversion optimization. Pendrel, J., "Seismic Inversion—A Critical Tool in Reservoir Characterization", Scandinavian Oil-Gas Magazine, No. Investigating the Internal Fabric of VSP data with Attribute Analysis and Unsupervised Machine Learning. In this way, the log data is only used for generating statistics within similar rock types within the stratigraphic layers of the earth. Proceed to payment. Minor edits and "stretch and squeeze" may be applied to the well to better align the events. iOS Android Huawei Choose language Current version v.456. Date 12 - 14 October Location Porto, Portugal Organizer EAGE Registration Closing soon. Acoustic impedance is used to produce more accurate and detailed structural and stratigraphic interpretations than can be obtained from seismic (or seismic attribute) interpretation. 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). 1998.192. Geophysicists routinely perform seismic surveys to gather information about the geology of an oil or gas field. The inversion results in acoustic impedance (AI), which is the product of rock density and p-wave velocity. The resulting elastic parameters are real-rock properties that can be directly related to reservoir properties. Seismic Inversion with Deep Neural Networks: a Feasibility Analysis ... DOI: 10.3997/2214-4609.201900765. Seismic inversion is a key process used extensively in exploration, production and geohazard studies.  These can be roughly grouped into two categories: The combination of these categories yields four technical approaches to the inversion problem, and the selection of a specific technique depends on the desired objective and the characteristics of the subsurface rocks. Individual PDFs are merged using bayesian inference techniques, resulting in a posterior PDF conditioned to the whole data set. This requires accurate p-sonic, s-sonic and density logs tied to the appropriate events on the seismic data. Drawing heavily on contributions from researchers in the oil and mineral exploration industries, the journal has a very practical slant. Pre-stack inversion is often used when post-stack inversion fails to sufficiently differentiate geologic features with similar P-impedance signatures. Accurate wavelet estimation requires the accurate tie of the impedance log to the seismic. Watson, I., Lines, L., "Seismic Inversion at Pike’s Peak, Saskatchewan", CREWES Research Report, Volume 12, 2000. The more advanced algorithms use the full Knott–Zoeppritz equations and there is full allowance for amplitude and phase variations with offset. It is also important to ensure that the wavelet matches the phase and frequency of seismic data. Our colleague Mr. Thomas Fieseler took part at the first HGS and EAGE conference on Latin America and won the „Esteemed Speakers Award“ for his presentation of: Common Pitfalls in Seismic Imaging in Overthrust Geology and how to address them – a Collection of Case Studies from South America 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.. Sen, M. K., "Seismic Inversion", Society of Petroleum Engineers, 2006. There are many different techniques used in seismic inversion. 5–11. 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. These are in turn merged with their low-frequency counterparts from the model and integrated to elastic properties. Stephen, K., MacBeth, C., "Reducing Reservoir Prediction Uncertainty by Updating a Stochastic Model Using Seismic History Matching", SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering, December 2008. Whitfield, J., "The Relation of Net Pay to Amplitude Versus Offset Gradients: A Gulf of Mexico Case Study", University of Houston Master's Thesis, 1993. Most often these are lithology or seismic facies cubes and predicted lithology or facies probabilities, but other outputs are also possible. The oil and gas industry uses many jargons, acronyms and abbreviations. Fifth EAGE Exploration Workshop. Analysis of multiple realizations produces mean (P50) property cubes or maps. This is done by deriving unique wavelets for each input-partial stack. Unlike conventional inversion and geomodeling algorithms, geostatistical inversion takes a one-step approach, solving for impedance and discrete property types or lithofacies at the same time. 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. CSSI transforms seismic data to a pseudo-acoustic impedance log at every trace. your email. A follow-up ground based Moving Loop survey (MLTEM) confirmed the presence of two potential conductive bodies over the prospect. 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. Hasanusi, D., Adhitiawan, E., Baasir, A., Lisapaly, L., van Eykenhof, R., "Seismic Inversion as an Exciting Tool to Delineate Facies Distribution in Tiaka Carbonate Reservoirs, Sulawesi – Indonesia", Proceedings, Indonesian Petroleum Association, Thirty-First Annual Convention and Exhibition, May 2007. Zou, Y., Bentley, L., Lines, L., "Integration of Reservoir Simulation with Time-Lapse Seismic Modeling", 2004 CSEG National Convention. Without a wavelet, the solution is not unique. Seismic inversion may be pre- or post-stack, deterministic, random or geostatistical; it typically includes other reservoir measurements such as well logs and cores.. This is especially useful when dealing with parameters that are sensitive to change; an analysis of this sort enables greater understanding of development risk. No prior knowledge of the elastic parameters and density beyond the solution space defined by any hard constraints is provided at the well locations. 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.  High frequency can be derived from well control or geostatistical analysis. 242–256. Pendrel, J., Dickson, T., "Simultaneous AVO Inversion to P Impedance and Vp/Vs", SEG. 5–11. 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. Porto. Deterministic inversions address this problem by constraining the answer in some way, usually to well log data. Russell, B., Hampson, D., "The Old and the New in Seismic Inversion", CSEG Recorder, December 2006, pp. A final "multi-well" wavelet is then extracted for each volume using the best individual well ties and used as input to the inversion. A good (CSSI) algorithm will produce four high-quality acoustic impedance volumes from full or post-stack seismic data: full-bandwidth impedance, bandlimited Impedance, reflectivity model, and low-frequency component. When applied in global mode a spatial control term is added to the objective function and large subsets of traces are inverted simultaneously. A near-stack wavelet can be used as the starting point for estimating the far-angle (or offset) wavelet. Geophysical Prospecting publishes the best in primary research on the science of geophysics as it applies to the exploration, evaluation and extraction of earth resources. 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 research section Applied Geophysics focuses on the development of seismic modelling and full waveform inversion methods and their application to a broad range of spatial scales, including non-destructive material testing, shallow targets in environmental geophysics, and imaging of the earth crust. Payment. The wavelets, with amplitudes representative of each offset stack, are input directly into the inversion algorithm. ... 2019.

Rizzuti and others published Time-Domain Wavefield Reconstruction Inversion for Large-Scale Seismics | Find, read and cite all the research you need on ResearchGate Seismic inversion, in geophysics (primarily in oil-and-gas exploration/development), is the process of transforming seismic reflection data into a quantitative rock-property description of a reservoir. With in-depth features, Expatica brings the international community closer together. Latimer, R., Davison, R., van Riel, P., "An Interpreter’s Guide to Understanding and Working with Seismic-Derived Acoustic Impedance Data", The Leading Edge, March 2000, pp. Mostly coming from user contributions, it is contextual and is meant for indicative purposes only. View event. first name. 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. Shallow Shear Wave Reflections: What Can the Amplitude Tell Us and How? First EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion. Deutsch, C., Geostatistical Reservoir Modeling, New York: Oxford University Press, 2002, 376 pages. 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. POSTER PRESENTATIONS A poster is an ideal medium for an informal exchange of ideas and for discussions. 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. Chakrabarty, C., Fossey, J., Renard, G., Gadelle, C. "SAGD Process in the East Senlac Field: From Reservoir Characterization to Field Application", No. This makes comparison of the filtered well logs and the inversion outputs at these locations a natural quality control. Accurate wavelet estimation is critical to the success of any seismic inversion. EAGE knows that many members are facing challenging circumstances with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kuala Lumpur. Next, horizon and log data are used to construct the stratigraphic framework for the statistical information to build the models. 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). Reflection coefficients are calculated from P-sonic, S-sonic and density logs using the Zoeppritz equations. The quality of the inversion result is dependent upon the extracted seismic wavelets. Because of its efficiency and quality, most oil and gas companies now use seismic inversion to increase the resolution and reliability of the data and to improve estimation of rock properties including porosity and net pay.. Further QC involves review by a multidisciplinary team of all input parameters and the results of the simulation. The inferred shape of the seismic wavelet may strongly influence the seismic inversion results and, thus, subsequent assessments of the reservoir quality. 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. 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.
