Conditioning to 4D seismic data
The ResX 4D module enables a 4D seismic data history matching workflow. ResX 4D allows for maximum flexibility in terms of what response and in what domain the comparison between simulation results and 4D signal is done. The module increases utilization of 4D data for reservoir characterization. Get a better understanding of reservoir connectivity, flow barriers and bypassed hydrocarbons by using ResX with your 4D data.
Quantitative use of 4D seismic data in ResX
In the ResX objective function 4D seismic data is represented as a 2D surface. Multiple surfaces can be included, for example one per extraction window and per time-lapse interval. When used in an ensemble based study, the output of the 4D workflow is an ensemble of reservoir models that are consistent with static, production and 4D seismic data, while capturing uncertainty. This leads to better decision-making for assets employing 4D seismic data. Putting you in a better position to increase higher ultimate recovery.
Qualitative use of 4D seismic data in ResX
A vital part of ResX 4D module are the qualitative ensemble analysis visualization and QC tools that are available. Perform statistical analysis of the objective function and visually analyze 2D surfaces and 3D properties to quickly identify areas of interest. Use interactive filters to pinpoint areas where the prior model assumptions should be revisited.
