Can we use dynamic elastic nonlinearity measurements of rocks to map reservoir properties?

Most of the easily extracted oil originating from already discovered fields has been found and produced, while the "difficult" oil has been left behind. The current trend of declining oil production from the producing reservoirs is somewhat self-imposed by the industry, and research efforts related to the new developments of accurate reservoir description for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) from these fields have declined during the last ten years.At present, lack of accurate subsurface imaging techniques has made the EOR methods costly and inefficient. Recovery of the residual oil using EOR is possible but ultimately depends on the development of new technologies that will enable us to map t...
