Seismic characterization of Niobrara fluid and rock properties: a 4D study and multicomponent (3C) analysis
Unconventional plays in tight porosity, low permeability formations have found large success by stimulating hydraulic fractures to increase hydrocarbon production. Strategies to improve and optimize recovery can be aided by the use of multi-component, time-lapse seismic data for well placement, geologic understanding, monitoring production and identifying zones which have been under-stimulated, or by-passed entirely. Within the Wattenberg Field in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin, in a collaborative research project between the Reservoir Characterization Project (RCP) and field sponsor Anadarko ...
