SPG-Duliajan Chapter organises SEG's 2017 Honorary Lecturer South and East Asia by Dr. V. S. S. Narayana Murty

Society of Petroleum Geophysicist, Duliajan Chapter organized SEG’s 2017 Honorary Lecturer, South and East Asia by Dr. J. V. S. S. Narayana Murty at Duliajan on 11/05/2017. The topic of lecture was “Passive seismic tomography (PST), QC and application of PST-derived velocity for seismic imaging. Additionally, Dr. Murty delivered a lecture on seismic-imaging on request of the attendees.

Shri B.P. Sharma, Resident Chief Executive, Oil India Limited, Duliajan inaugurated the session and felicitated Dr. Murty. Shri Sharma enlighten the audience with his brief talk on necessity of the technology induction particularly of PST to get better subsurface image and hence reduce exploration uncertainty. Shri G.V.J. Rao, President-SPG Duliajan Chapter welcomed Dr. Murty and talk about that necessity of PST particularly in the geologically complex areas in Upper Assam Basin.

The session was well attended and actively participated by members of SPG-Duliajan Chapter, Geo-scientists of Oil India Limited and Students of Dibrugarh University along with faculty members.

In this lecture, Dr. Murty first detailed the concept of passive seismic tomography and a field example was also presented to understand concepts, benefits and the limitations of PST using natural earthquakes. Various QC measures and conditioning of PST velocity field was discussed with examples to infer better structural information and use PST velocity as an initial model for reprocessing in seismic imaging. During the lecture, detailed parameterization and methodology of tomographic inversion, uncertainties and its limitations in context of hydrocarbon exploration was discussed. During the talk on Seismic-Imaging, principles of various migration algorithms and their applications were discussed. Dr. Murty conveyed thanks to Mrs Peggy Pryor, SEG; Mr G.V.J. Rao, President, SPG Duliajan Chapter & Mr Pawan Kumar Singh, Secretary-SPG Duliajan Chapter for arranging this lecture.

At last Mr D.S. Manral, Chief Geophysicist conveyed vote of thanks with particular mention of Dr. Murty, SPG-India, SEG and Shell for sponsoring the aforesaid programme.

SEG Honorary Lecture on Passive Seismic Tomography conducted by SPG,NE Chapter Jorhat on 12.05.2017

Society of Petroleum Geophysicists, NE Chapter, Jorhat conducted a lecture on “Passive Seismic Tomography (PST), QC and application of PST-derived velocity for seismic imaging” by SEG honorary lecturer Dr. JVSSN Murty at 1st floor conference hall, LUIT Bhawan, ONGC, Jorhat on 12th May, 2017.

Session started with brief introduction about the objective of the program by President SPG India, NE chapter Shri S K Sharma, GM (GP). In his welcome address he told that this program was an initiative for Knowledge Sharing andwas targeted to groom the youngsters. He welcomed DrJVSSN Murtyto the SPG platform and he recalled and appreciated the contribution of Dr JVSSN Murty in the field of Processing and Mathematical Programming for ONGC.

Shri M Ayyadurai, ED-Basin Manager, A&AA basin, Patron SPG India, NE chapter, in his keynote addressstated that it is a wonderful day for G&G executives especially Geophysicists to hear from one of the domain experts of ONGC. He communicated to the house that Dr Murtydeveloped many software for the benefit of organisation. He indicated that Dr Murty is contributing a lot to ONGC even after his superannuation. He advised the audience to make the lecture more interactive and extract as much as possible information from speaker. He also thanked SPG, NE Chapter for arranging such a nice lecture.

During his lecture Dr. JVSSN Murty, explained that Passive Seismic Tomography (PST) method uses both P-wave and S-wave travel times from naturally occurring low-intensity earthquakes recorded over a period of time. He stated that due to low cost and relative ease in operation, PST has made inroads into hydrocarbon exploration, especially in difficult terrains, by inferring structural and lithological information from the VP and VP/VS volumes as well as incorporating the velocity models in seismic imaging projects in areas of poor quality seismic data where determining the initial velocity is difficult. He specified that the success of PST depends on the natural seismicity in the area and sufficiency of data recorded for estimating depths of the hypocentres and velocity fields using tomographic inversion. He also exhibited the results of PST survey, earlier carried out in Sector VC of Cachar Fold Belt.

SPG-APG Vadodara Chapter organise a technical talk by Mr. R R Tiwari

A technical talk was delivered by Mr. R R Tiwari, DGM(Geophysics-Wells), CEWELLS, ONGC, Vadodara on “Geoemchanics:from Exploration to Abandonment” on 5th sept’16

The talk focused on the importance of Geomechanics in the oil industrybeginning with exploration phase to abandonment. A geomechanical model is required to address the issues of drilling instability, well placement, hydraulic fracturing and sand cut. These models can also be used to forecast events like reservoir compaction, fault slippage or reactivation, cap-rock seal failure and surface subsidence during the production phase of a field.

Oriented Perforations in the direction of maximum horizontal stress are preferred in high stress anisotropy areas so that set of fractures are favourably oriented to fail in shear under present day stress field are said to be critically stressed.These fractures exhibit very good flow characteristics consequently their identification is essential for optimal development.

Mr. Tiwari explained how in a normal faulting region faulting may be induced if stress path becomes more than the critical value due to depletion. Also as fluid pressure is reduced due to production, unconsolidated or poorly consolidated reservoirs may face compaction and even surface subsidence. Shallow reservoirs with large areal extent  (low D/R ratio) will exhibit maximum surface subsidence with respect to total reservoir compaction, shallow gas reservoirs being the most vulnerable. Gas bearing Bandra formation may witness such an event.

Gas producing fields of KG-DWN-98/2 block may also be prone to deformation, compaction and consequently subsidence as they are shallow and unconsolidated.

   
Mr. Tiwari being felicitated by Patron, audience listening attentively and MrPanigrahi giving away the memento
   


Mr. Arun Kumar, Patron of SPG-APG, Vadodara chapter emphasized the importance of such technical programs and desired that it shall be held more frequently. President, SPG Mr. S Panigrahi congratulated SPG, Vadodara chapter for doing the good job of educating the geoscientificcommunity through its various programs. Program was ably compared by Mr. K P Singh, Secretary, SPG, Vadodara Chapter.
