A 3-D, three-component (3-D, 3-C) seismic survey was collected over the northeastern limit of Joffre Field, Alberta, for the purpose of detecting porosity within two complex Upper Devonian carbonate reservoirs, Nisku and Leduc. The survey demonstrates the robust nature and power of 3D, 3-C seismic technology to determine not only porosity, but also permeability. As a result, by integrating results from this new seismic technology with geologic and reservoir production data into a reservoir model, new field extension and field redevelopment targets are identified, and improved reservoir exploitation can be achieved.
