3D SEISMIC IMAGING

WHAT IS SEISMIC?

Seismology studies energy as it moves through the earth and interacts differently with various types of underground formations. While seismology is best-known for measuring and analyzing earthquakes,  introducing topics in an essay essays on vintage fashion source essay on cow in english for class 3 college essay help topics thesis theme wiki https://atc.bentley.edu/admission/free-essay-on-the-writing-process/12/ suprax for sale developmental dissertation methodology six essays on education crinone and clomid gcse ict web design coursework essay on gun laws follow url terminal city newspaper go to site personal essay to college buy essay papers online cheap essay on increasing population in hindi download free term papers online distributed system thesis free essays on slave narratives https://businesswomanguide.org/capstone/nike-marketing-mix-essays/22/ https://vabf.org/reading/case-study-examples-consulting/250/ graphic design thesis statement professional admission paper proofreading websites for phd https://dsaj.org/buyingmg/asal-usul-viagra/200/ pope essay on criticism full text overcrowded prisons solutions essay dissertation topics human resources management cialis segmentation strategy alli walmart it is widely used to help locate underground hydrocarbon reserves.

After geologists identify areas for potential drilling, specialized rigs are used to drill holes. A small source, which generates seismic sound waves—thumps–is then placed in each hole. Once all holes are drilled with sound sources in place, small listening devices called geophones are placed throughout the area to record the sound waves reflected back up from underground. Cables connect the geophones. When the sound sources are triggered, a mobile truck-mounted central recording unit collects the readings from all the geophones.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN SEISMIC TECHNOLOGY

Rapid adoption of cluster-based super-computing in the early 2000s unlocked subsurface imaging algorithms that were previously unavailable. These new algorithms, dramatically improved the ability to image below salt, significantly reducing drilling risk.

PROCESSING

The collected data is processed using specialized software to to create a clear picture of what lies beneath the earth’s surface. The final product is a 3D volume or data cube, which may be processed further. When the final data volumes have been processed, they are sent to the geoscientist to begin the interpretation process.

INTERPRETATION

 3D seismic data allows the geoscientist to visualize the images from multiple directions — they are used to determine the depth of the rock formation and whether or not it is productive and help determine where to place wells. The data can help determine the quality of the rock, the depth, and in some cases, predict the porosity. In certain areas the presence of oil or gas can be directly detected.

PETRO RIVER 3D SEISMIC PROGRAM

Petro River has acquired 3D seismic data on many of its assets. Where necessary, it is reprocessing this data to optimize its conventional, low risk approach. The company is also “shooting” its own seismic measurements.

Interpreting seismic data is a complex process and can take months to translate. Our multi-disciplinary technical team has decades of experience in 3D seismic and legacy 2D as well.
