It was not so long ago that time lapse, or 4-D, seismic was a technology that kind of hovered in the background, being applied only in specific situations, such as when a reservoir began producing erratically rather than as predicted.

Summer NAPE was a sizzlin’ event at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston -- which was sizzlin’ in a whole different way during the “dog days” of late August.

To some, the academic world of colleges and universities represents Ivory Towers, detached from reality. To the U.S. Department of Energy, they represent a crucial – and practical – research potential.

There’s nothing quite like a successful field project to demonstrate the commercial viability of a particular technology. So chalk one up for the recently completed wide-azimuth OBS (ocean bottom sensor) node survey over the BP-operated Atlantis field in the challenging deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

When you’re hot, you’re hot -- sizzling, in fact. Whether offshore -- like the Western Neptune, left, acquiring a wide-azimuth seismic survey in the Gulf of Mexico -- or deep in undeveloped territory, the seismic industry is having no trouble finding work to keep them busy.

Explorer Geophysical Corner

In last month’s Geophysical Corner we considered how to improve the seismic resolution of deepwater, near-seafloor geology using P-P data acquired with seafloor-positioned multicomponent sensors. This month we move to part two: We show how P-SV (converted-shear) data acquired with these same sensors provide even greater resolution of deepwater, near-seafloor strata.

“Clean coal” is rapidly becoming more important as energy demands continue to rise. Clean coal is coal that has been stripped of minerals and other impurities. It is then gasified and burned, and resulting flue gases can be treated with steam and re-burned to make CO2 in the flue gas economically recoverable.
