Detecting Fractures in Vietnam’s Cuu Long Basin with Full Azimuth 4C OBS Data

Speaker:   Dr. Chris Walker (Seabed Geosolutions)

Results from Vietnam’s first ocean bottom seismic (OBS) survey demonstrate the benefits of higher density, full-azimuth seabed data to enhance our understanding of fractured basement reservoirs.

SpiceRack: An Autonomous Underwater Vehicle for Efficient Seabed Seismic Acquisition

Speaker:   Constantine Tsingas (Saudi Aramco)

This presentation will focus on the development of an autonomous robotic sea bottom node which is a joint project between Saudi Aramco and Seabed Geosolutions. We will show results from a field trial specifically designed to demonstrate the command and control of a swarm of the nodes - deployed simultaneously, the positional accuracy the nodes achieved relative to their pre-plotted destinations and examples of the consequently recorded seismic data.

Pseudo-Random Blended Source Tests Offshore Abu Dhabi

Speaker:   Dr. Chris Walker (Seabed Geosolutions)

Following the successful application of pseudo-random shot spaced blended sources in areas with “soft” seabed conditions, tests were undertaken offshore Abu Dhabi to examine the effectiveness of applying this blended source approach. The results, including robust AVO comparisons with unblended data, are presented.

Marine EM: Quo Vadis

Speaker:   Dr. Chris Walker (Seabed Geosolutions)

The main scope of this workshop (W-6)  is to evaluate the 4D marine Controlled Source Electromagnetic (CSEM) potential, provide the step change technology development requirements for realistic deep water reservoir monitoring and contribute to build the case for industry adoption as a valuable and cost-efficient complement to 4D seismic and reservoir management. Of particular interest are how ocean bottom seismic (OBS) and seabed nodal technology relate to EM.
