Schlumberger Launches Industry-First Photorealistic Reservoir Geology Service

Schlumberger Launches Industry-First Photorealistic Reservoir Geology Service | Techniques d'exploration du sous-sol | Scoop.it

The new service includes the industry’s first microresistivity imager that produces oriented, photorealistic, core-like images of the formation in wells drilled with oil-base mud (OBM). Interpretation of the images identifies geological features and predicts reservoir trends in 3D with a high degree of certainty.

Monterey proves more complex than average shale play

Monterey proves more complex than average shale play | Techniques d'exploration du sous-sol | Scoop.it

A pending cut in the Energy Information Administration's resource estimate for the Monterey shale reflects the complexity of the play relative to other US tight oil plays and the need for more research into its geology. EIA is expected to cut by 96% its estimate of technically recoverable resources in the massive California formation, to 600 million bbl.

Evaluating Reservoirs with Low-Cost Multicomponent Seismic Data

Evaluating Reservoirs with Low-Cost Multicomponent Seismic Data | Techniques d'exploration du sous-sol | Scoop.it

There are two types of seismic waves that can be generated to illuminate deep geology – a compressional (P) wave and a shear (S) wave. The majority of seismic programs record only P waves. However, S waves have great value for detecting and estimating rock properties needed for reservoir characterization.
