Book Description :

Authored by a geophysicist with more than 50 years of experience in research and instruction, Reflection Seismology: Theory, Data Processing and Interpretation provides a single source of foundational knowledge in reflection seismology principles and theory. Reflection seismology has a broad range of applications and is used primarily by the oil and gas industry to provide high-resolution maps and build a coherent geological story from maps of processed seismic reflections. Combined with seismic attribute analysis and other exploration geophysics tools, it aids geologists and geo-engineers in creating geological models of areas of exploration and extraction interest. Yet as important as reflection seismology is to the hydrocarbon industry, it’s difficult to find a single source that synthesizes the topic without having to wade through numerous journal articles from a range of different publishers. This book is a one-stop source of reflection seismology theory, helping scientists navigates through the wealth of new data processing techniques that have emerged in recent years. Provides geoscientists and geo-engineers with a theoretical framework for navigating the rapid emergence of new data processing techniques Presents a single source of reflection seismology content instead of a scattering of disparate journal articles Features more than 100 figures, illustrations, and working examples to aid the reader in retaining key concepts Arms geophysicists and geo-engineers with a solid foundation in seismic wave equation analysis and interpretation

Book Description :

Although considera bIe efforts are now being made to find new sources of energy, alI the experts are agreed that hydrocarbons will have to provide the greater part of our energy needs for a generation ahead. Exploration for and production of hydrocarbons therefore pose a serious problem for our future, as much for the quantitative satisfaction of our requirements as for our search for self-sufficiency in energy. As a direct result of improvements in technology throughout the world, geophysics has progressively enlarged its field of influence in the realms of exploration and production. But amongst the various geophysical methods available, seismic reflection has gradually become accepted as the basic tool of the oiI prospector. Reflection seismology has reached and consolidated this position because it has shown itself to be capable of adapting to the increasing complexity of the requirements of exploration. Initially directed towards geometric mapping of the sub-surface, it became the means of detection of structural traps in geotectonically quiescent regions, and thereafter in increasingly complex surroundings. It has enabled us to clothe the structural framework with a lithology, initially approximate, but becoming more and more precise, assisting the explorer to locate stratigraphic traps. Further developments enable us under favourable circumstances to estimate the quality of the deposits and to detect the presence of fluids and of their interfaces; it then becomes an unrivalled tool for the producer, both in the development of deposits and in the application of enhanced recovery methods.

Book Description :

This latest edition of an established work provides an authoritative account of the art and science of reflection seismology. It offers a clear explanation of the methods by which artificially created seismic waves are employed in the economical discovery of oil and gas, as well as their growing use in the exploitation of coal reserves and other energy resources. In this 3rd Edition more information is provided about peripheral methods such as velocity logging, vertical seismic profiling, and the use of shear waves in reflection work. Includes discussion of the advances that have been made in the past five years--for example, the ability to deal with two-dimensional data reception and the transmutation of such tremendous data arrays into 3-D information on the Earth's internal structure. Covers all important phases of theory, instrumentation, digital data processing, and scientific modelling, and discusses the fine art of interpreting the results.

Seismic Amplitude Inversion in Reflection Tomography

Book Description :

This is the first book of its kind on seismic amplitude inversion in the context of reflection tomography. The aim of the monograph is to advocate the use of ray-amplitude data, separately or jointly with traveltime data, in reflection seismic tomography. The emphasis of seismic exploration is on imaging techniques, so that seismic section can be interpreted directly as a geological section. In contrast it is perhaps ironic that, in decades of industrial seismology, one major aspect of waveform data that potentially is easier to measure and analyse has generally been ignored. That is, the information content of seismic amplitudes. Perhaps the potential complexity has deterred most researchers from a more thorough investigation of the practical use of seismic amplitude data. The author of this volume presents an authoritative and detailed study of amplitude data, as used in conjunction with traveltime data, to provide better constraints on the variation of seismic wave speed in the subsurface. One of the fundamental problems in conventional reflection seismic tomography using only traveltime data is the possible ambiguity between the velocity variation and the reflector depth. The inclusion of amplitude data in the inversion may help to resolve this problem because the amplitudes and traveltimes are sensitive to different features of the subsurface model, and thereby provide more accurate information about the subsurface structure and the velocity distribution. An essential goal of this monograph is to make the amplitude inversion method work with real reflection seismic data.

Book Description :

The material in this volume provides the basic theory necessary to understand the principles behind imaging the subsurface of the Earth using reflection and refraction seismology. For reflection seismology, the end product is a "record section" from a collection of "wiggly traces" that are recorded in the field from which information about the properties of subsurface structure and rock can be derived. For the most part, the principles of imaging are the same regardless of the depth to the target; the same mathematical background is necessary for targeting a shallow water table as for investigating the base of the earth's continental "crust" at a depth of 30-50 km.

Book Description :

Technology has been predicted as the last card in combating the ever increasing demand of our commodity; oil and gas. Since the core technique used in exploring for Oil and Gas is the Reflection Seismology; then, modern approach to Seismic data acquisitions and interpretation is of prime essence. A powerful, unconventional Interpretation tool; Spectral decomposition, has been used to visualize (in 3 – D) a thin sandstone reservoir in “X – Field” Niger Delta, Nigeria. The study aimed at mapping thin sandstone beds which have been considered sub seismic or un-mapable using conventional interpretation methods. The suite of Well log data and seismic data were acquired and qualitatively and quantitatively interpreted using RocDok and OpendTect software. The identified thin beds were delineated perfectly using the spectral decomposition tool which was portrayed through amplitude variations. However, new hydrocarbon prospects were identified through similarities of amplitude signature.

Book Description :

The goal of this primer is to provide a basic near-surface seismic-reflection processing guide for workers who have not had industry- or academic-supported training or guidance but wish to maintain the integrity of seismic imaging as a tool for near-surface exploration. Increasingly, shallow-reflection seismology is being used as a noninvasive tool for determining the physical properties and geometry of the upper 100 meters of the subsurface. This primer focuses on processing two small data sets using standard common-midpoint (CMP) processing and includes significant processing pitfalls encountered in previous work.
