Parameterization of the elastic model for seismic monitoring of CO2 sequestration – a case study of the CO2CRC Otway project
MetadataShow full item record
Feasibility analysis of seismic monitoring of CO2 sequestration into a saline aquifer involves modelling changes of elastic properties of rocks caused by injection. To estimate the changes in elastic properties by CO2 saturation effects from reservoir simulations, the simulation grid has to be populated with elastic properties. Two workflows are compared regarding their predictions of changes in elastic properties. The comparison shows the importance of the dry rock bulk modulus in predictions of the time-lapse response and how geological information can help improve the estimation of this parameter.

Investigation of pressure and saturation effects on elastic parameters: an integrated approach to improve time-lapse interpretationGrochau, Marcos Hexsel (2009)Time-lapse seismic is a modern technology for monitoring production-induced changes in and around a hydrocarbon reservoir. Time-lapse (4D) seismic may help locate undrained areas, monitor pore fluid changes and identify ...
Li, Ruiping (2002)In most cases of seismic processing and interpretation, elastic isotropy is assumed. However, velocity anisotropy is found to exist in most subsurface media. Hence, there exists a fundamental inconsistency between theory ...

(2014)Prediction of sonic velocities in shales from well logs is important for seismic to log ties if the sonic log is absent for a shaly section, for pore pressure anomaly detection, and for data quality control. An anisotropic ...
