Data Exploratory over the Permian Basin as an Initial Stage to Velocity and Geomechanical Modeling

TexNet-CISR is building a deeply-integrated Permian Basin geological model that can be used to constrain 3D velocities to better locate earthquakes and constrain location uncertainty in a first phase; to assemble a geological and geomechanical property database for earthquake causation assessment and analysis in a second one.

Today Isabelle will share with you some of the delicacies from the initial data QC and from the data exploratory exercise, which focused on the different rock velocity assessment from conventional industry data and from tomographic modeling.

This presentation will be interactive so join awake!
