ABSTRACT

Ping Hu Field, discovered in 1982 in the East Previous HitChinaNext Hit Sea, 365 km offshore Previous HitChinaNext Hit, consists of two Previous HitstructuralNext Hit closures on a complex, faulted anticline. Chinese authorities have planned for the field to provide natural gas to Shanghai in the 21st century. Five wells have been drilled, and more than 2400 km of 2-D and 118 km2 of Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit have been interpreted. Both structures were identified by 2-D Previous HitdataNext Hit and drilled prior to acquisition of the Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit.

Interpretation included mapping key reservoirs and fault analysis. Reservoir composition, distribution, and lateral variations were described. These variations were determined by studying geophysical attributes of the Previous HitdataNext Hit, which included instantaneous amplitude, frequency, phase, and acoustic impedance. Previous HitSeismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit were inverted to acoustic impedance (density and velocity) and transformed into reservoir parameters. Crossplot regression analyses of petrophysical parameters were performed, and relationships between pairs of values of porosity, acoustic impedance, permeability, and water saturation were derived.

An integrated geological-geophysical- reservoir engineering evaluation was required for accurate hydrocarbons-in-place calculations. The interpretation was utilized for field development planning, but implementation has been delayed due to distance Previous HitfromNext Hit shore relative to field size.
