  • 3D seismic - why is it a piece of cake?

    This short video shows in a simple way what three-dimensional seismic cube is, explains why it is more beneficial compared to 2D modification, and gives you an idea of how scientists use it. The idea to use three-dimensional seismic method for displaying geological structures appeared several decades ago, however its extensive use began only 10-15 years ago. 3D seismic acquisition, processing and interpretation requires significant resources, but the quality and value of the results are worth the cost. 3D seismic is most widely applied in offshore petroleum industry, where it provides crucial geological information and helps to significantly reduce the financial risks at the following drilling stage. Interesting facts • Despite the high costs, US Gulf of Mexico performs almost ubiquitous ...

  • What is Oil and Gas Exploration Seismic Survey?

    Reflection seismology (or seismic reflection) is a method of exploration geophysics that uses the principles of seismology to estimate the properties of the Earth's subsurface from reflected seismic waves. The method requires a controlled seismic source of energy, such as dynamite/Tovex, a specialized air gun or a seismic vibrator, commonly known by the trademark name Vibroseis. Reflection seismology is similar to sonar and echolocation. Refraction seismology is a geophysical principle (refraction) governed by Snell's Law. Used in the fields of engineering geology, geotechnical engineering and exploration geophysics, seismic refraction traverses (seismic lines) are performed using a seismograph(s) and/or geophone(s), in an array and an energy source. The seismic refraction method utilizes...

  • 3D Seismic Project

    Total E&P Nederland has been producing gas in the Dutch continental shelf area since the 1970s. The most recent seismic studies of Total's acreage in the Dutch sector of the North Sea are already 20 years old. This fact, together with declining production and the improvements in production techniques over the years, meant that a seismic feasibility study was essential. The project has a number of distinct stages: the feasibility study, the tender procedure, data acquisition and data processing. The feasibility study was completed towards the end of 2011 and established the parameters for the survey. Five seismic survey companies entered bids for the project, and Fugro Geoteam AS was awarded the contract, worth tens of millions dollars. This 3D seismic project is of immense strategic ...

    BroadSeis is the CGG broadband marine solution, combining industry-leading equipment, unique variable depth streamer acquisition techniques and proprietary deghosting and imaging technology. Over 270,000km2 of BroadSeis 3D, including 70,000km2 of BroadSource and 33,000km2 wide-azimuth data has been acquired. From shallow water North Sea and Indonesian prospects to deep water Gulf of Mexico and West Africa, we have demonstrated BroadSeis' ability to emit, record and process six octaves of data, including ultra-low frequencies in the 2.5 - 5 Hz range, enhancing penetration and illumination below complex overburdens such as subsalt and sub-basalt environments.

    This short video explains -- to a non-seismologist -- the concept of seismic migration. Common Midpoint Stack, which was state of the art until the early 1970's, was able to produce seismic images with good signal-to-noise. However, the seismic events tend to be mis-positioned and cross one another, particularly when there is geologic dip. Migration is the process of correcting these dip and positioning errors as an automatic digital procedure. Only the seismic velocity must be known (which, unfortunately, is no small feat in many areas!).

Reflection seismology is similar to sonar and echolocation. Refraction seismology is a geophysical principle (refraction) governed by Snell's Law. Used in the fields of engineering geology, geotechnical engineering and exploration geophysics, seismic refraction traverses (seismic lines) are performed using a seismograph(s) and/or geophone(s), in an array and an energy source. The seismic refraction method utilizes the refraction of seismic waves on geologic layers and rock/soil units in order to characterize the subsurface geologic conditions and geologic structure. The methods depend on the fact that seismic waves have differing velocities in different types of soil (or rock): in addition, the waves are refracted when they cross the boundary between different types (or conditions) of soil or rock. The methods enable the general soil types and the approximate depth to strata boundaries, or to bedrock, to be determined. SEISMICS: Seismics are the most important prospecting tool deployed all over the world. The methods work in a manner that may be compared to ultrasound examinations by a doctor, in the sense that ultrasound waves are sent into the body from a transducer probe and are reflected at different intensities by various organs or bones. The ultrasound machine creates an image of the inside of the body from the pattern of reflections detected. With seismic methods, acoustic waves that penetrate into the sea floor are transmitted by airguns on a research ship. The waves travel at different velocities depending on the type of rock they encounter. In the subsurface they are reflected at the boundaries between different rock types. From the specific differences in the sound waves’ travel times, a computer can draw conclusions about the nature of the rock forming the seabed. Just a few decades ago seismic methods could only provide simple cross sections of the sub-bottom. Today modern 3-D seismic methods are employed. These are largely made possible by increasingly powerful computers that are capable of spatially representing bottom structures and reservoirs
