Abstract

4D or time-lapse seismic data has become a business of usual tool for reservoir management in high-cost environments for oil production such as the West of Shetlands. 4D seismic can be used to visualize fluid movement in a qualitative/semi-quantitative sense to visualize field behaviour, predict well performance and predict reservoir pressure. Whilst the data may be easily visualized using 3D visualization technology the challenges for the future include the need to obtain quantitative predictions through better quality seismic data.
