  • Integrating time-lapse seismic, reservoir simulation and geomechanics

    Ken Kosco, Christian Rau Schiøtt, Ole Valdemar Vejbæk,Jorg Volker Herwanger, Rune Wold and Nick Koutsabeloulis

    In recent years, time-lapse seismic data has been used increasingly as a reservoir management tool and as an aid in field development planning. The use of high-quality and carefully processed time-lapse seismic data, in conjunction with reservoir simulation models and production data, enables the creation of an internally consistent subsurface model that yields detailed insight into reservoir fluid flow processes and geomechanical processes. Co-visualizing such subsurface models together with reservoir geomechanical models enables an understanding of reservoir dynamics that could not be achieved when using these models individually.
