The three-dimensional seismic method is now widely recognized as a very valuable tool for characterizing reservoirs. We show that an understanding of the tool's resolution capabilities can be readily made in the laboratory using models. Channelized reservoir systems such as fluvial deposits can be characterized by the careful use of the three-dimensional methods, VSP and bottom-hole pressures and an example is given from a mature field in Texas.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
