Rendering Rock Properties for Qualitative and Quantitative Interpretation
This Forum brought together a wide range of geoscience practitioners to share, discuss and hypothesize about the current and future state of rendering rock properties and the state of utilizing these properties across our diverse industry applications.
Rendering Rock Properties for Qualitative and Quantitative Interpretation is paramount to successful implementation of any geophysical program. The multitude of seismic and non-seismic measurements available today that correlate directly or indirectly with specific rock and fluids properties provide geoscientists with opportunities to map and model rock properties both spatially and temporally, regardless of the geologic environment. Hence, the ability to capture rock and fluid property information is pertinent to the geoscience practitioner across conventional to unconventional plays and exploration to development.
Advances in petrophysics, fluid mechanics, geophysical imaging and modeling, geophysical attribute analyses, geostatistics and predictive analytics, all coupled with even more powerful computing capabilities allow the interpreter to integrate information from a broad suite of disciplines to yield data driven, rock and fluid property appropriate Earth Models.
This Forum will brought together a wide range of geoscience practitioners to share, discuss and hypothesize about the current and future state of rendering rock properties and the state of utilizing these properties across our diverse industry applications. The focus was on: (1) rock and fluid properties at the pre-production reservoirs, (2) quantitative seismic and non-seismic interpretation, and (3) dynamic reconstruction of processes for conventional and unconventional reservoirs using seismic and non-seismic methods.
