Abstract

Seismic techniques hold great potential for characterization and recovery monitoring of heavy oil reservoirs. However, to be more effective, we must understand the seismic properties of the heavy oils and the heavy oil sands because this knowledge of in-situ properties is key to linking the seismic response to reservoir properties and changes. In this article, we examine the seismic properties of heavy oils in detail.
