The value of 4D seismic
The value of 4D seismic: Has the promise been fulfilled?
Time-lapse (4D) seismic is a key component of an asset's reservoir surveillance strategy. Its value lies in optimizing field developments because it enables the detection of reservoir changes due to production, and it allows for timely corrective action toward optimal field management. In producing assets, 4D seismic adds incremental economic value by providing 3D information on the dynamic performance of reservoirs.
