Rock physics analysis can maximise the value of your existing data, allowing you to de-risk amplitude driven prospects and make more informed decisions about future investments. It can also be used to support the Energy Transition, providing a set of workflows essential for screening and monitoring CCS sites. At its heart, rock physics provides the link between seismic and well log data which opens up a wealth of opportunities. Continue reading to find out more...
Do you want to enable your geoscientists to understand the practical aspects of rock physics techniques? Are you worried about the robustness of investment recommendations coming from your in-house team? See if Merlin's training courses can help.
During his semi-retirement, John Donato has been using some of his spare time to work with the academic ‘Beneath Britain Group’, formed as a joint initiative between UKOGL (UK Onshore Geophysical Library) and the Department of Earth Sciences at Oxford University. He has recently published a third paper on the Beneath Britain website, this time authored jointly with Chris Pullan (CP Exploration). Continue reading to get a flavour of this new publication entitled 'The Eastern Extension of Southwest England under the Mesozoic Southern England Basin and its Variscan Dextral Translation'.
Creating robust well to seismic ties is a crucial yet unloved workflow which must be performed at the start of any seismic interpretation project. The value added to a project by having a confident set of well-seismic ties cannot be understated. Continue reading to learn more about this important workflow..
I don’t know about you but one of the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of working in geoscience for me is actually in getting it wrong! Where would the fun be if things always turned out just as we predicted? The mantra ‘expect the unexpected’ comes to mind when dealing with sub-surface data. The flexible geoscientist recognises the flaws in their data and uses their geological nous to fill in the gaps and to consider what might be, rather than what the data seems to be showing them. This spectacular example illustrates the point and, through a seismic re-processing exercise, happily delivers the ‘big reveal’. Read on..
