Joint PESA/SPE Vic/Tas November Technical Meeting

VIC/TAS

This presentation will show how time-lapse or 4D seismic data can be used as an additional constraint to history match reservoir models in a 4D Seismic History Matching (4D SHM) workflow. 4D seismic provides an independently measured and spatially extensive dataset that complements the field’s production data. It is sensitive to fluid saturation and pressure changes and provides information on the dynamic behavior of the reservoirs. It is also sensitive to the geological properties and informs the geological model too.…

PESA Vic/Tas Christmas presentation

VIC/TAS

Muruk , a Christmas discovery, along with Pnyang, comprise two of the recent, global gas discoveries in the mountainous jungle of PNG. Both are haunted by innovative exploration techniques. Prior to the 1970’s, PNG prospects were defined by field mapping and drilled where there was river access. Regional gravity data, refraction data and heli-supported rigs lead to drilling of wells in the Highlands in the 70’s, including using slim-hole rigs, leading to major oil and gas discoveries in the 80’s.…

PESA Vic/Tas evening event – The Geology of Scotland and the Stratigraphy of Whisky

VIC/TAS

It is possible to fit Scotland almost three times into Victoria, yet it contains rocks in outcrop from every period of geological time form the Archean to the Neogene (even if all that remains of the Cretaceous is a single block of Chalk that had fallen in to a granitic intrusion on the Island of Arran).  It just happens to have been in the right place at the right time to experience many of the rift events and orogenies that have affected NW…

PESA/SPE Vic/Tas March Technical Meeting

VIC/TAS

A central part of the reservoir characterisation and prediction process is the construction and validation of accurate numerical models of rock and dynamic flow properties at a wide range of scales. Accurate generation of model inputs at multiple scales is one of the biggest challenges facing the industry today.  Digital rock analysis, an emerging technology driven by rapid advances in 3D pore scale imaging and computation has multiplied the amount of data acquired from core material and improved laboratory data…

PESA Vic-Tas May Technical Meeting and Branch Annual General Meeting

VIC/TAS

Some oil and gas fields (e.g., Pluto/Wheatstone), and many yet to be found fields, lie beneath areas where the sea-floor bathymetry changes rapidly. This has caused nightmares for many seismic processors since the 1990s and still causes problems for seismic interpreters today. Some new seismic processing and acquisition technologies offer potential solutions but probably not without substantial geological input into the velocity model building. In fact, there’s even more to the problem than just geology! An understanding of carbonate rock…

PESA Vic/Tas July Technical Meeting

VIC/TAS

Although still one of Australia’s most prolific hydrocarbon provinces, the Gippsland Basin is an enigma. The basin largely owes it success to a single play (top porosity below regional seal), reflected in an anomalous creaming curve that shows no kick in production due to common ‘step-change’ events such as the application of 3D seismic or exploration of the deep water. It is believed the explanation can be found in depth imaging issues, which have neem known in the basin for…

PESA Vic/Tas August Technical Meeting

VIC/TAS

The Pluto 4D Project is Australia’s first 4D acquired over a gas field and has been an outstanding success despite the prior high technical risk of not being able to detect 4D signals above the background noise.  At the time the first 4D Monitor Survey was acquired the Pluto field had been online for 3 years 9 months and produced approximately 1 Tcf of gas.   4D feasibility studies carried out previously showed that saturation changes (related to water ingress)…
