Abstract

Summary

In 4D seismic, the velocity model used for imaging and reservoir characterization can change over calendar time as the reservoir is produced. This is particularly true for heavy-oil reservoir produced by steam simulation (EOR).

We propose an automatic 4D update of the 3D velocity model using an efficient technique based on 4D pre-stack time migration (4D-PSTM) that describes the pre-stack differential kinematic effects by matching the 4D dataset.

On real continuous 4D seismic data, the 4D-PSTM allows us to quantify interval velocity variations that can be used to map temperature changes in the reservoir in agreement with petro-elastic model expectations.
