Abstract

Summary

The article presents an outline of preliminary static 3D modeling workflows developed by a team of AGH during the last two years of research work. The first stage of the completed work was the integration of variable data types, including the archival and the modern cartographic materials, seismic, well-log and laboratory data from the central and western parts of the Baltic Basin. The models were elaborated at different scales from regional to local. They are designed to be a key part of workflows, which will be used to elaborate the procedures of shale gas resources assesment. According to the authors’ assumptions, they should be matched to geological settings of the Paleozoic Basins of Poland. They also should take into account the main rules of PRMS classification. At the present stage of research obtained preliminary results are not equivocal due to the extremely variable quality of the input data. Also quantity of the modern data seems to be insufficient to obtain statistically significant resources assessment. Elaborated up to now models are base cases. They confirm productivity of the Ordovician-Silurian shale gas system in the Baltic Basin, and can help to establish crucial cut-offs for shale gas accumulations in that area.
