Prediction of porosity and fluid in chalk from acoustic measurements.

    Project Details

    Description

    Using seismic data for predicting high porosity reservoir zones in chalk has provided promising results within hydrocarbon exploration and production. Research is therefore aimed at a better quantification of the limitation of this method and at an improved understanding of the link between the elastic response of the chalk and the variation in porosity and pore fill.
    The objective for the PhD.-research is to provide a tool for prediction of variations of porosity and pore fill in chalk from acoustic measurements with focus on North Sea Chalk.
