Seismic Data Interpretation and Evaluation for Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production.

Topics: Seismic Data Interpretation, Geophysics

Open source seismic processing softwares provides a low cost alternative to commercial softwares and, with an appropriately directed development, an ability to adapt to the changing research needs. The best known example of such kind is Seismic Unix, a free reflection processing system developed at the Colorado School of Mines. It has been broadly used in research and teaching seismology and also in smaller scale seismic processing industry. Through this paper the seismic Unix was tested for...

For the seismic data with low SNRs, the first arrival automatic picking method is very important but difficult. In the paper, we proposed a new method based on the mutual information in information theory. The mutual information between signals and noises is zeros, thus random noises have less effects on first arrivals pickup. The paper compares the principle of STA/LTA, AIC, fractal dimension of three kinds with the proposed method for seismic data first–break picking method, and at the same...

An entirely analytic single-station surface-wave processor is developed that analyzes long-period seismic records two orders of magnitude faster than real tme on an IBM 360/44 computer. In processing four days of continuous synthetic data the algorithm detected 85% of the 170 signals of S/N = 1/2, with false alarm rate of one per day. A novel detection theory is introduced that exploits the consistency of the azimuthal estimates associated with a sequence of detections. (Author)

We have developed a cepstral F-statistic method that attaches statistical significance to peaks in the cepstra of seismic data. These peaks often result from echoes such as depth phases and thus provide a means of identifying possible depth phase candidates. Detections from this method are stacked as a function of their pP-P and sP-P delay times predicted by IASPEI travel-time tables using a modified version of the network stacking method of Murphy et al. (1999). The method detects depth phases...

Six events from the Baikal rift zone occurring from 1971 to 1975 were examined in a seismic discrimination context. Seismograms from ALPA, LASA, NORSAR, the HGLP, the WWSSN, and the SRO stations were studied for source mechanism, Ms-mb, corner frequency, pP, complexity, and spectral ratio. All the Baikal events can be identified as earthquakes except the November 5, 1976, event which shows explosion characteristics. The characteristics of the Baikal events were compared to six East Kazakh...

Using Jordan and Anderson's earth model B1, we calculated theoretical travel times, depth allowance tables, branch interval times, and B factors for all PKP phases; the results are in tabular form. Travel times are calculated with polynomial approximations, and those coefficients are also computed. New additions to those tables are the data for the CD branch, which are the PKiKP arrivals in the distance range of 109 to 158 deg. Although travel times of the CD branch fall within a few seconds of...

This paper introduces a new fully-automated method for identifying clusters in large event sets. The method uses Delaunay tessellation to determine the clusters and initial membership, then applies an iterative K-method optimization to refine membership in the clusters until stability is achieved. The method is robust and computationally efficient, with performance improvement over standard K-method optimization from O(n2) to O(n log n), which is achieved by making use of the Delaunay...

Analysis of 1,471 P- and PKP-coda indicates that the probability of an unexplained phase occurring in a coda of an event as recorded at a single station is 0.12 for a detection threshold on the order of 3.5db (signal-to-coda background). The average coda length is roughly six minutes (343 seconds) for the events examined. The probability, therefore, that the seismograms at four stations out of thirteen will exhibit unexplained phases in the coda of a given earthquake is 0.045.

The Korean Seismic Research Station (KSRS) short-period array was evaluated using data which cover eight-hour time periods daily between May and June 1973. Most of the data is of poor quality due to instrumental problems. The average noise reduction obtained by beaming was about 2 dB better than square root of (N) due to the almost continuous presence of propagating coherent noise at the station. The 50% detection body wave magnitude threshold was found to be 4.35 + or - .45 (95% confidence...

The SRO station MAIO was used to obtain many measurements of P sub and LR from a sequence of aftershocks at Gazli, Uzbekistan in 1976, at a distance of 576 km. SP periods and amplitudes are analyzed to obtain the proper distance correction factor to yield m sub b. Eighteen events are measured to give an M sub s range 2.2 to 3.6, and m sub b range 3.6 to 5.0. The observations support the postulation that delta M sub s/delta M sub b is approximately equal 1 to at low magnitudes. The Gazli...

Measurements of log(A/T) reported by the International Seismic Centre, the Vela Observatories, and the Long-Range Seismic Measurements Program are used to define an amplitude-distance curve for the maximum amplitude in the first few seconds of motion for the distance range delta 90 degrees. In general terms, the corresponding phases are P, P(diff), and PKIKP. Some information is also obtained, however, for the phases PP and PKP2.

The resolution in A/D conversion when recording waveforms of night- time (low) noise on four different NSS channels at CPO is 0.3 to 1% of the RMS noise power. Clipping of the middle period (MP) and long period (LP) channels in A/D conversion was observed in the case of an M sub s = 7.6 shock at a distance 22 deg, and signal amplitudes up to 30% of the clipping level were observed on the short-period channel when recording nondestructive local shocks (up to 1 deg). In one such case a probably...

LASA subarray amplitude anomalies are investigated using 395 medium- sized events, distributed in ten azimuthally divided sectors. Although LASA magnitudes, when averaged over all azimuths, are only slightly biased relative to NEIS magnitudes, the amount of bias varies with azimuth and subarray, suggesting that a simple station correction for m sub b bias is not adequate. In addition, fluctuations among LASA subarrays are about 0.15 in standard deviation, even when these magnitudes are...

Production of high-quality data sets for calibration of seismic travel times remains a painstaking and costly endeavor. The value of meticulous data analysis is beyond reproach, but the number and coverage of events with accurate locations and carefully measured seismic-phase arrival times is not sufficient for either development of high-fidelity (3-dimensional) models or comprehensive empirical calibration. Although regional and global bulletins of seismic data provide excellent data coverage,...

Spall signals, if present on teleseisms, should be most easily detected in the short-period P-waveforms. If pP and spall (P sub s) echoes are identical in waveform to the P then, theoretically, deghosting filters could remove these source echoes and produce identical seismograms from neighboring explosions with nearly identical source-to-receiver paths. If P sub s is absent, the pP corrections alone suffice. Determining the optimum echo amplitude and delay parameters involves trial-and-error...

Seismic event locations obtained by using P sub g and P sub n arrivals may cause severe errors because the Earth's crust is laterally heterogeneous. Location errors are attributed to the fact that crustal velocities and thicknesses for each source-to-station path are different from those of the standard crustal model used in the location program. To overcome this difficulty, we have installed a number of crustal models in a location program and made it possible for each station to be assigned...
