Title: Integration of Previous HitSeismicNext Hit and Well Log Data Using Vertical Previous HitSeismicNext Hit Profile: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Tom Goforth, Laurent Moinard

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Use of the vertical Previous HitseismicNext Hit profile (VSP) as the link between surface Previous HitseismicNext Hit data and advanced log evaluations makes it possible to calibrate Previous HitseismicNext Hit sections in terms of subsurface petrophysical parameters.

A step-by-step procedure of (1) tying a surface Previous HitseismicNext Hit section to the borehole measurements via the VSP, (2) reprocessing the Previous HitseismicNext Hit section, and (3) propagating log information outward from the well using the calibrated Previous HitseismicNext Hit section is practical. In fact, if a VSP is run in the discovery well in a field, this procedure can be followed to obtain information about where to drill the first development well. If vertical Previous HitseismicTop profiles are run in each subsequent development well, a continually updated reservoir description can be used to guide the development of the field.
