Event Details

4D (Time Lapse) Seismic In Reservoir Management

Business Context

4D (Time-lapse) seismic reservoir monitoring which is now becoming a major integral part of reservoir management is the process of acquiring and analyzing multiple seismic surveys, repeated at the same site over calendar time in order to image fluid flow effects in a producing reservoir. Studies have demonstrated that the challenges facing 4D seismic can, and have been overcome, largely through better understanding of 4D seismic fundamentals and utilization of fit-for-purpose seismic acquisition and process.

Who Should Attend

Geophysicists, geologists, petrophysicists, managers, reservoir engineers, government officials, and others who want to know what 4D seismic is and how it helps in reservoir monitoring.  A basic understanding of the principles of geophysics and geology will be assumed. 

What You Will Learn

Course Content

  • Fundamentals of 4D Time lapse seismic; Business drivers and economics of 4D seismic.
  • Generation of synthetic traces that represent the reservoir conditions for a range of production scenarios (feasibility) to determine if 4D will work; Calibration of synthetic traces to seismic to estimate type of expected changes that may occur in seismic.
  • Comparison of seismic data acquired over calendar time; Calibration of 3D seismic volumes to remove spurious differences related to seismic acquisition and processing as well as changes in the near surface; Subtraction of calibrated seismic surveys and mapping of the differences. 
  • Interpretation of calibrated 3D surveys to determine the areas of the field that have changed during production; Comparison of the seismic differences to the synthetic traces to analyze the types of changes that have occurred in the reservoir (pressure, temperature, saturation, etc.).

About the Presenter

Olufemi Johnson Adepoju (B.Sc. (Hons.) Geology and M.Sc, Applied Geophysics) is currently a Geophysical Consultant in Calgary, Canada supporting the deployment of new products and technology in the oil and gas sector including training and on-site mentoring. He has over 25 years experience in the oil and gas industry in seismic interpretation, field development, reservoir studies and prospect evaluation. He brings into asset evaluation and development the latest technologies, including prestack seismic AVO analysis, seismic inversion and seismostratigraphy.  

Femi worked for Shell for 17 years in Nigeria and in Rijswijk, Netherlands as a Team Leader and Senior Geophysicist, participating in various exploration and development projects. He is a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and the Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE).  Prior to his association with Shell, he was Exploration Manager of Nigus Petroleum Ltd. Lagos and also worked as a field seismologist with Seismograph Service Ltd and Geosource Ltd. carrying out 2D and 3D seismic data acquisition and in-field processing.
