Touted as a “revolutionary” fault-imaging attribute, Thinned Fault Likelihood (TFL) is proving to be a relatively new and successful tool for revealing sweet spots and fracture proximity in highly faulted formations, said AAPG member Hesham Refayee, a geoscientist at dGB Earth Sciences.

The main goal for shale resource characterization is usually the identification of sweet spots, which represent the most favorable drilling targets. Such sweet spots can be identified as those pockets in the target formation that exhibit high total organic carbon (TOC) content, as well as high brittleness. As there is no direct way of computing TOC using seismic data, we adopt indirect ways for doing so.

The calibration of seismic data with the available well control is an important step that provides the link between seismic reflections, their stratigraphic interpretation and subsequent prediction of reservoir and fluid properties.

AAPG is the largest geoscience organization in the free world, and its members know more about frontier areas now being explored than anyone else. Part of our scientific responsibility is to act as advisers, not advocates for one political stand – either for or against climate change. AAPG needs to be part of the conversation.

We present a simple workflow that allows an interpreter to more accurately extract such attributes using the volumetric calculators available in most commercial interpretation software packages.

A team of structural geologists and seismic processing geophysicists has developed what they believe is a potentially revolutionary technology that can help predict fracture performance before a well is ever drilled.

The often-volatile outcome of exploration investment decisions is tightly linked to the level of uncertainty in the geological interpretation and associated value assessment. In order to evaluate subsurface opportunities, information is needed.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
