Resoptima announces 4D seismic history matching for its ResX product

81193940 b3a576fd00 cResoptima, an independent technology company committed to driving value for the upstream oil and gas industry, has announced the availability of 4D seismic history matching for ResX, the companys flagship geomodelling and data conditioning product

Developed in close cooperation with five E&P companies in a Joint Industry Programme (JIP), the new ResX module delivers an efficient workflow for qualitative use of 4D seismic data in ensemble-based modelling, as well as for quantitative 4D seismic assisted history matching using ensemble-based methods.

The new software module helps to increase the utilisation of data from 4D seismic surveys for reservoir characterisation. The output is an ensemble of reservoir models consistent with static, production and 4D seismic data, while capturing uncertainty.

The solution improves modelling practices, leading to a more robust set of history-matched models, better quantification of uncertainty in the forecast, and hence to an overall improvement in the decision-making process.

The new ResX module for 4D seismic data conditioning represents a significant advancement in the quantitative use of 4D seismic data in reservoir modelling. Ensemble-based methods represent the best approach for delivering a history matching workflow for time-lapse seismic data.

The development of 4D seismic data conditioning capabilities in ResX has been accomplished in close cooperation with five leading E&P companies, all with extensive experience in using ResX for geomodelling and data conditioning. The broad collaboration also ensured that the new ResX 4D seismic module delivers interoperability with third-party seismic software packages, providing users with flexibility for integrating it with existing 4D seismic workflows.
