This paper addresses the 4D seismic monitoring aspects of AKPO, a complex deepwater field operated by Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd (TUPNI). AKPO development is driven by seismic in many ways. Seismic reservoir characterization is critical for well placement, optimization and monitoring while drilling, as well as to delineate reservoir sedimentology, capture heterogeneities and populate the geological model with rock properties. In addition, time-lapse seismic monitoring plays a key role in the understanding of the field dynamics, the update of the reservoir model and the field management as wells as the planning of the infill campaign. The first results of AKPO 4D monitoring program yield highly valuable information with great impact on reservoir management.
