Theseus 24D optimized seismic CCS MMV method

Lee Hunt1, Eric Street1, Graham Hack1, Jason Schweigert2 and Matthew Allen21CARBON ALPHA, CALGARY, CANADA; 2BJV DESIGN INC., CALGARY * CORRESPONDING AUTHOR EMAIL ADDRESS: LHUNT@CARBONALPHA.COM ABSTRACT We present a new strategy, which we call Theseus 24D, to increase the capital efficiency of seismic monitoring, measurement, and verification (MMV) plans for carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects onshore. Theseus is needed because CCS is currently socially and environmentally desirable but has a discouragingly high capital intensity. Also, the repeat, or time-lapse, seismic elements of CCS bear a material amount of the MMV cost for these projects. MMV rarely endures a critical business evaluation [...]

Double-wavelet time-lapse full-waveform inversion

Xin Fu¹, Sergio Romahn² and Kristopher A. Innanen¹ ¹UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY, DEPARTMENT OF GEOSCIENCE, CALGARY, CANADA ²PETRÓLEOS MEXICANOS (PEMEX) * CORRESPONDING AUTHOR EMAIL ADDRESS: XIN.FU1@UCALGARY.CA ABSTRACT The time-lapse seismic method is widely used to monitor reservoir changes, and in this effort, full-waveform inversion is now playing an increasingly active role. Especially in time-lapse full-waveform inversion, reducing non-repeatability between baseline and monitoring surveys is essential. In this paper, we compare the impact of different degrees and types of wavelet non-repeatability on three basic time-lapse inversion strategies, including the parallel strategy (PRS), the sequential strategy (SQS), and the double-difference strategy (DDS). [...]
