By Paul P. Veeken

The curiosity in seismic stratigraphic strategies to interpret mirrored image datasets is definitely tested. the arrival of refined subsurface reservoir experiences and 4D tracking, for optimising the hydrocarbon construction in present fields, does reveal the significance of the 3D seismic technique. The additional price of mirrored image seismics to the petroleum has in actual fact been confirmed during the last a long time. Seismic profiles and 3D cubes shape an enormous and strong facts resource to solve the constitution of the subsurface. It will get these days exploited in ever larger aspect. better offsets and speed anisotropy results provide for example entry to extra information on reservoir circulation houses like fracture density, porosity and permeability distribution, Elastic inversion and modelling may possibly inform whatever concerning the swap in petrophysical parameters. Seismic investigations offer an essential instrument for the delineation of refined hydrocarbon traps. they're the root for figuring out the nearby basin framework and the stratigraphic subdivision. Seismic stratigraphy combines very varied scales of statement: the seismic and well-control. The systematic process utilized in seismic stratigraphy explains why many staff are utilizing the foundations to judge their seismic observations. The the following provided sleek geophysical suggestions enable extra actual prediction of the adjustments in subsurface geology. Dynamics of sedimentary environments are mentioned with its relation to international controling components and a hyperlink is made to high-resolution series stratigraphy. 'Seismic Stratigraphy Basin research and Reservoir Characterisation' summarizes easy seismic interpretation ideas and demonstrates the advantages of intergrated reservoir reports for hydrocarbon exploration. subject matters are awarded from a pragmatic perspective and are supported through well-illustrated case histories. The reader (student in addition to specialist geophysicists, geologists and reservoir engineers) is taken from a uncomplicated point to extra complex learn options. * Discusses the hyperlink among seismic stratigraphic rules and series stratigraphy *

34: Schematic representation of some physical aspects of the Fresnel Zone. The seismic wavelet has a certain wavelength with energy spread over a discrete time interval. It means that neighbouring points on the reflector close to the reflection point are contributing to the seismic response. In this figure the effect of the first Fresnel zone (lambda/4) is shown (modified after Sheriff 1977, reprint from AAPG whose permission is required for further use). Sec. 35: 200-metre gap in reflector, which is not resolved at depths greater than 2 seconds TWT.

This filtering is usually done as a quick way to reduce the amount of background noise in the data. Anti-aliasing filters (suppressing artificial line-ups due to sampling interval) are renowned for their negative effect on the resolution. Filtering also affects some of the genuine data and decreases therefore the theoretical resolution power. Care should be taken, when applying the filters, not to destroy the interpretability of the seismic data. Hands-off acquisition techniques assure that the filtering in the field is kept at a minimum, so that all cleaning efforts can be efficiently done in the lab afterwards (Ongkiehong and Askin 1988).

G. Schulz 1999). CRP stands for Common Reflection Point. Migration scanning techniques are applied on the CRP gathers (Jones et al. 1998, Jones 2003). This means that the velocity model is perturbed with a certain percentage and the gather with the best imaging and event flattening is retained (focusing technique, Robein 2003). This is done in a layer-per-layer manner, 30 gather allows to compute a more accurate velocity model, suitable for subsequent ray tracing and depth conversion. A velocity scanning method is used to update the velocity field (courtesy CGG).
