Elastic nonlinearity measurements help map permeability, pore fluids

07/15/2002
Four of the most frequently discussed challenging issues in the geophysical industry are:How can we map the porosity profile of an existing or potential reservoir to eliminate the cost of drilling dry wells?Can we accurately map the open fractures, faults, and joints in the reservoir rocks for better understanding of the fluid flow in the reservoir to optimize the field production?How is best to map the permeable units in the reservoir, which are important, to understand the flow patterns between the wells and between the reservoir facies for accurate reservoir simulation?How can we map changes in the reservoir pore fluids that are caused due to production and injection processes; can we ...
