Hydrocarbons reservoir modeling and drilling recommendations

The final stage of geophysical studies, including seismic, is Hydrocarbons reservoir modeling and drilling recommendations. The team of highly qualified professionals in geophysics that use modern hardware with the up-to-date software perform this job.

The seismic and geological and geophysical data interpretation sequence:

  • Project creation in Petrel format.
  • Seismic database creation, upload the wells coordinates, VSP data, acoustic well logs and stratigraphic marking.
  • Geological data and well logging data upload.
  • Well logging data digitizing, processing and re-interpretation.
  • Seismic waves velocity files creation.
  • Seismic tie based on stratigraphic marks and synthetic seismograms.
  • Complex interpretation of seismic data: target seismic horizons marking, tectonic deformations tracing.
  • Time cube to depth cube transforming.
  • Mapping.
  • Interwell correlation of horizons.
  • Well testing data analysis.
  • Well logs and petrophysics data analysis.
  • Seismic modeling.
  • 3D grid in time and depth scale.
  • Сubes modeling based on seismic attributes and its combinations.
  • Separating of producing horizons.
  • Filtration-volumetric digital modeling of the main producing horizons of deposit based on 3D seismic and well-log data interpretation.
  • Porosity, lithology and seismic cubes creation.
  • Filtration and volumetric properties correlation (cross-plots) based on wells logs, wells testing, petrophysics and seismic data.
  • Seismic attributes edit based on the producing horizons filtration and volumetric properties.
  • Mapping of filtration and volumetric rocks properties within the producing and forecast horizons.
  • Creation of seismic attribute cubes, filtration and volumetric cubes.
  • Data preparation for reserves estimation in Petrel format.

Interpretation sequence and steps can be changed during the work process. It depends on geological and geophysical data quality and Customer requirements.
