Flow models time 4D seismic surveys

John R. Fanchi Colorado School of Mines Golden, Colo. Integrated flow models can be used to optimize the timing of 4D seismic surveys for gathering reservoir engineering information, as well as for tracking flood fronts Consensus building between disciplines is an essential task in the reservoir-modeling process. The emergence of time-lapse (4D) seismic monitoring has expanded the role of seismic analysis to include estimation of fluid types, flow patterns, and rock properties over the extent of the reservoir.1 2 These parameters can be predicted by extending existing flow simulators to include a petrophysical model that calculates reservoir geophysical attribut...
