Relevance of seismic measurement methods on scattered waves

Deposits in reservoirs of fractured and porous-fissured types refer to hard developed types. This is due primarily to the high differentiation of the characteristics of the reservoir over the laterals.

In addition, deposits of Eastern Siberia are characterized by the presence of zones of anomalous lithostatic pressures, which are critical for wells.Ignoring these features leads to a sharp decline in efficiency of field development.These issues are especially topical for the fields in Eastern Siberianewly on production.The lack of effective methods to avoid the aforementioned risks leads to low debit and high accident rate of deep wells, including those with a weighted construction.

The methods of seismic exploration on scattered waves, in particular the CSPD method, are designed to solve the problems of identifying fractured zones and zones with anomalous formation pressure and, thereby, to improve the efficiency of prospecting and developing oil and gas fields.

The CSPD method, developed by the specialists of the Research Institute of Applied Informatics and Mathematical Geophysics of the Baltic Federal University named after I.I. Kant, the only domestic method to date, that allows to indicate and rank fractureson resistive and open (impermeable and permeable).Since numerous small hydrocarbon deposits should be tied to open discontinuous faults, it is recommended that a new method be applied to the processing and interpretation of seismic data from previous years to create a refined structured tectonic model of the field.

Many years of experience in the processing of CDPM seismic data usingCSPD method (since 2004 at 45 fields) has shown its high efficiency in Western Siberia, Eastern Siberia and a number of other regions in the identification of faults, zones of  excessive fissuring of the reservoir, as well as zones with anomalous formation pressure see Fig.1-6).
