4D Seismic Monitoring of Reservoir Production in the Eugene Island 330 Field—Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory

Abstract

We have begun the integration of rock physical properties, production data, reservoir modeling and 4-D seismic monitoring from multiple generations of 3-D surveys to track changes of seismic attributes with pool drainage. Here we present the 4-D seismic monitoring technologies in order to 1) predict reservoir characteristics from seismic data, 2) locate bypassed pay, and 3) isolate drilling strategies that will maximize additional recovery for future fields. The test study is from the Eugene Island 330 Field of the offshore Gulf of Mexico. These results will have general application to other fields in the Gulf of Mexico, Nigeria, the North Sea, the Caspian Sea, and Indonesia - those with multiple generations of 3-D seismic coverage.
