Integrated Reflection Seismic Monitoring and Reservoir Modeling for Geologic CO2 Sequestration

Performer: Fusion Petroleum Technologies, Inc.

Project No: FE0001111

Project Description

This two-year project was working to develop and demonstrate a fully integrated, multidisciplinary CO2 MVA software system that takes a novel approach to the deployment and utilization of seismic imaging, and the seamless integration of the seismic data with reservoir modeling. The project also employed an active sourcereflection seismic imaging strategy based on the deployment of spatially sparse, surface seismic arrays, integrated with a dense complementary baseline array. The project team determined whether a more accurate CO2 reservoir modeling package than those existing in industry today could be developed using fewer points in a surface seismic array (but collected more frequently), along with new and existing software.
