Multicomponent seismic characterization and image comparison - Fasken Ranch, Andrews County, Texas
MetadataShow full item record
This study uses multicomponent 3C3D seismic data integrated with well data to analyze the Western platform of the Midland Basin in Andrews County, Texas. The conventional P-P wave mode data are compared with the converted wave P-SV mode. In addition, a newer converted wave mode, SV-P, was produced by a vertical vibrator source and recorded with only vertical geophones. This research is one of the first to determine the efficiency of this newer converted-mode, SV-P, seismic data. This work considers if and how multicomponent seismic data can advance the characterization of Wolfberry unconventional reservoirs and its associated stratigraphy in the study area.
