Simulator to seismic modelling (sim2seis) was applied to the Blake Field to understand the controlling parameters of the 4D signal in a three phase system. This was necessary as it is a significant challenge to distinguish simultaneous uneven movement of the GOC and OWC around horizontal producers based on 4D seismic. Here, 4D amplitude and time-shift maps were produced via sim2seis to illustrate
the effect of 1) reservoir structure, 2) relative movement of the contacts during production, 3) immediate overburden properties, and 4) seismic wavelet on the 4D signature. The outcome was an improved comprehension of the reservoir for future management.
