Mr. Mitchell introduced the 4D Seismic History Matching, a new way for building more accurate reservoir model than the traditional history matching.
4D Seismic History Matching has been carried out since 2008, and the number of 4D survey has been gradually increasing since oil price crash.
Mr. Mitchell gave us the case studies of 4D Seismic History Matching on Harding & Gryphon fields in UK North Sea, and showed the usefulness of it.
Also, Mr. Mitchell introduced the usefulness of Assisted Seismic History Matching even though it is currently practical on only small fields.
As technology evolves, these automatic works will have a significant benefit for us.
SPE JAPAN is glad to have him as one of the distinguished lecturer this year. We appreciate his visit to Japan.
We look forward to your visit to the next distinguished lecture.
