Integrated seismic and geologic analysis of Waddle Creek field in southeastern Moffat County, Colorado
The Niobrara Formation is a self-sourced resource play and unlike in conventional reservoirs, key production can occur in "sweet spots" that may extend down-dip off structure. Mapping the location and orientations of high-density fracture zones is key to identifying these productive areas in tight petroleum systems. This study integrates a 3D seismic interpretation with well log analysis and forward modeling in order to determine how high density fracture and fault zones in the Niobrara relate to regional structures and paleo-tectonic controls. Seismic curvature, variance, and ant-tracking ...
