EAGE Australasian Workshop on Continuous Improvement in 4D Seismic
4D programs can allow subsurface teams to update their models, optimize the field drainage plan, and avoid drilling unnecessary or poorly-sited wells. Increasingly complex reservoirs and cost focus require continuous improvement in 4D surveying, processing and evaluation.
4D seismic is well established for monitoring of conventional reservoirs during production. Approaches vary from occasional repeat streamer surveys to frequent monitoring by means of permanent surface or seabed arrays of receivers. The industry has had most success to date with oil fields, but application of 4D seismic to gas fields is also becoming the norm.
This PGS sponsored workshop will update on the latest ideas, technologies and industry practice in 4D seismic reservoir monitoring, especially related to industry challenges in the Asia-Pacific region. Participants will discuss and exchange experiences, on theoretical aspects, best practices and case studies.
