This article discusses the linkage between 4D seismic responses and geomechanics. Exploitation of this relationship has helped reduce development costs and maximize recovery from the compacting Valhall reservoir.
New approach makes geophysical results available to engineers in a form they can use. History matching, volumetric calculations and reserve estimates may all be improved.
