Quantitative integration of flow simulation and time-lapse seismic in a continuous CO2 EOR project, Delhi field, Louisiana
Interdisciplinary dynamic reservoir characterization is the key to reveal the fluid and rock behaviors of a productive petroleum reservoir under CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process. Integrating 4D seismic data into flow simulation is a relatively new approach to perform dynamic reservoir characterization and assist reservoir model updating. In this research, time-lapse seismic data are utilized qualitatively and quantitatively to guide the history matching process of CO2 flood in Delhi Field. The non-uniqueness of history matching is largely reduced by effectively incorporating 4D seismic ...
