    Abstract

    Permanent installations delivering frequent multiple time-lapsed seismic surveys offer many advantages to data processing and seismic inversion. It is natural that provision of seismic data at a time-scale scale closer to the production/reservoir engineer should open up a range of innovative technologies for 4D seismic interpretation such as pressure-saturation change estimation, connectivity analysis and history matching. However, these dynamic data must also be interpreted to ensure the time constants of the reservoir processes involved with production and injection are properly factored into the analysis. Whilst operational practicalities and budget usually determine the exact frequency and timing of survey shoots, the benefit of understanding the processes we discuss is that they help to further constrain the key controlling parameters of the reservoir fluid flow simulation model, and improve its ultimate forward predictive capability.
