ABSTRACT

Most deep-water development projects are planned using high-quality Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit and sparse well control. Economic considerations require large reservoir volumes to be drained with relatively few wells. We have used Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit to constrain large-scale, deterministic reservoir bodies in a Previous Hit3-DNext Hit architecture model of Pliocene turbidite sands of the "E," or "Pink," reservoir, Prospect Mars, Mississippi Canyon Areas 763 and 807, Gulf of Mexico. A geological interpretation derived Previous HitfromNext Hit Previous Hit3-DNext Hit Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit and three wells was linked to Previous Hit3-DNext Hit architecture models through Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitinversionNext Hit, resulting in a reservoir rock property distribution incorporating all available Previous HitdataNext Hit. High-resolution reprocessing of a high-quality marine Previous HitseismicNext Hit dataset resulted in the ability to deterministically map sedimentary reservoir bodies. Distinguishing subtle stratigraphic shingles Previous HitfromNext Hit faults was accomplished by detailed, loop-level mapping and was important to characterize the different types of reservoir compartments. Previous HitSeismicNext Hit Previous HitinversionNext Hit was used to detune the Previous HitseismicNext Hit amplitude, adjust the sand-body thickness, and update the rock properties. This modeling project illustrates how high-quality Previous HitseismicNext Hit Previous HitdataNext Hit and architecture models can be combined in a pre-development phase of a prospect, in order to optimize well placement.
