This paper illustrates a robust methodology for achieving detailed mapping of sand injectites in the Greater Fram area using seismic attribute analysis and integrating machine learning techniques that are specifically targeted at injectites and fault prediction. Key to our methodology is the use of ...

We propose a more accurate alternative to Gassmann's equation for the modeling of the undrained bulk compressibility of a reservoir rock with moderate to high crack density. The new model combines the Vernik-Kachanov model and Brown-Korringa's equation. A practical quantification of the applicability of ...

A major challenge in the US Gulf of Mexico is transforming disparate public datasets into a quality-controlled database. CGG has successfully created and used the database for its Storage Play Quality Index (SPQI) carbon storage screening methodology and applied its latest imaging technologies to ...

For subsurface commercial ventures or environmental projects that rely on maps of faulted horizons, accurate maps are fundamental. Fault topology provides an ideal tool for analysis of connectivity of fault systems. The data required to undertake the analysis is straightforward to extract from fault ...

Ocean Bottom Node acquisition is known to improve seismic velocity model building and imaging, especially for deep and complex targets. Due to cost considerations, OBN surveys are typically only acquired around the production field, using a relatively dense receiver grid. At the exploration phase ...
