Know Before You Go! Using Ray-Based Seismic Modelling to Reduce Risk
Presented by Lars Zühlsdorff
Field managers are required to make costly decisions, relying on data that can almost always be improved in some way. Entire projects are in jeopardy if the wrong questions are asked, or if the answers are not sufficiently sound. Will a new survey be fit for purpose? Is the data causing issues, is it geology, or could it be the processing flow? Should one try something new to improve imaging or repeat the old (for time-lapse reservoir information)? How can we improve interpretation to mitigate risk? Balancing cost and benefit is sometimes the most challenging part, but perhaps it doesn’t need to be. Ray-based seismic modelling may not make the decision for you, but it can provide essential information before proceeding with a calculated risk. Moreover, it has developed to become an efficient alternative to more comprehensive, but also more expensive and time consuming, full wavefield modelling. Overall, the motivation for modelling studies is very simple – they are significantly cheaper than failing in the field!
