Fractures and Statistics – A Week in 4D

Finally another week in 4D! Sorry for the radio silence, but nothing noteworthy has come to my attention for the last two round-ups of the week. Amsterdam gets another dimension This week we have two 4D announcements that are not directly related to publications. The EAGE announced a workshop on Practical Reservoir Monitoring, explicitly asking […]

Supercharge your geoscience knowledge

The internet is a wonderful place. Information is a press of the finger away. We can retrieve scientific papers in seconds. We can connect to others, exchange ideas and collaborate. Here are some of my favorite ways. An Update on RSS Of course, this is not it. In my first post on geo-awesomeness, I gathered […]

ASEG and Satellites – A Week in 4D

This week in 4D seismic we have contributions from ASEG extended abstracts and Geophysical prospecting. We also have two special appearances on a statoil publication and bei Marieke van Hout – de Groot of OpenDTect marketing a premium tool on linkedin. Let’s start with Statoil. They published a multi-scale, multi-phase flow upscaling workflow. I don’t […]

Binary 4D Seismic History Matching, a Metric Study

Historymatching at ECMOR XV — This week in 4D

This week the proceedings for ECMOR XV – 15th European Conference on the Mathematics of Oil Recovery were published. It will take place in Amsterdam from 2016-08-29 to 2016-09-01. Naturally, there are a bunch of publication on improving history matching of models. An Ensemble 4D Seismic History Matching Framework with Wavelet Multiresolution Analysis – A […]

The European Subsurface Hackathon – Hacking (before) the EAGE

We did it! We hi-jacked the weekend before the EAGE conference, called it the “subsurface hackathon” and the theme was games. It was the first time Matt Hall from Agile Geoscience tried it in Europe. He has some experience with these events already at the SEG, where gems like were created. But having a […]

What is 4D seismics?

4D seismics is hype. It’s the new stuff. But 4D is also somewhat obscure, so when I started telling people telling that I had landed a job in 4D seismics, the most common question was: So, Jesper, what’s the fourth dimension. The answer always causes some disappointment. “It’s time.” They were hoping for some obscure […]

Scientific Conferences on a Budget

Conferences are an important part of the world of science and technology. We get to publish preliminary results and bounce them off of our colleagues (or sometimes strongest competitors). It’s time for networking and also helps to take a break from the lab grind. But conferences take a huge burden on our budget. We have […]

Big Data in Oil and Gas – Fuzzy Classification

Data in oil and gas has always been large, but is it also big? Big data is more than Petabytes of seismic data or well logs. Big data is a buzzword in modern technology that isn’t clearly defined, yet used to sell expensive hard and software. What is big data all about? Big data is […]
