Submarine gravity flows constitute the last link in the source-to-sink sediment transport chain. They are the main mechanism for the transportation of sediment from the shallower to the deeper parts of the ocean. Due to their great volume, mobility, and power, they pose a formidable threat to the offshore infrastructures, and can generate...

van der Vegt, H. (author)
Geological reservoir models, created based on sparse core and seismic data, inform hydrocarbon production, geothermal applications and aquafer management. Important factors contributing to reservoir quality in these applications include the heterogeneities within and connectivity between the relevant geo‐bodies constituting the reservoir. The...

Feng, R. (author)
For reservoir characterization, the subsurface heterogeneity needs to be qualified in which the distribution of lithologies is an essential part since it determines the location and migration paths of hydrocarbons. Preliminary analysis of well-log data could help to identify various lithologies in a one-dimensional direction (depth), while the...

Bloemsma, M.R. (author)
Sedimentary deposits are important archives of the Earth’s history. In addition, they are of key economical and societal importance because they contain natural resources (e.g., hydrocarbons and drinking water). Hence, it is of utmost importance that we understand the mechanisms controlling the heterogeneity, morphology and spatial distribution...

This thesis investigates the impact of climatic, tectonic, and sea-level changes (external forcing) on river systems (source-to-sink) and how these changes are recorded in the stratigraphic record. It describes a newly developed numerical tool (PaCMod) to simulate the complex fluvial system sediment flux response to external forcing on a...

Recent developments in the deployment of distributed fiber-optic sensing systems in horizontal wells carry the promise to lead to a new, cheap and reliable way of monitoring production and reservoir performance. Practical applicability of distributed pressure sensing for quantitative inflow detection will strongly depend on the specifications of...

Strijker, G. (author)
Natural fractures occur over several orders of size magnitude. Accurately predicting the three-dimensional and multi-scale distribution of fractures in subsurface reservoirs is very difficult. Direct observations are limited to large-scale faults visible on seismic data and high-resolution, mostly small-scale, measurements of fractures...

Janszen, A. (author)
During its geological history, earth has experienced several periods of extreme cold climate. During these glaciations, ice sheets covered large parts of the globe. Because of the erosive power of flowing meltwater and ice, deep incisions, such as fjords, are an important aspect of the glacial environment. This thesis covers one specific type of...

Paulissen, W.E. (author)
Sedimentary basins form in a range of large-scale tectonic settings involving extensional, compressional or lateral movements. The dynamics of the basin infill are controlled by driving mechanisms such as tectonics, climate and eustatic control. The created accommodation space in the basin is filled by sediments that formed by erosion in the...

Athmer, W. (author)
This study focuses on the interplay between large-scale relay ramps and sedimentladen flows, specifically low-density turbidity currents that form one end-member of subaqueous sediment gravity flows. The main objective is to better understand the impact of syn-rift faulting on subaqueous sediment routes and to develop predictive depositional...

Tetyukhina, D. (author)
Fluvio-deltaic sedimentary systems are of great interest for explorationists because they can form prolific hydrocarbon plays. However, they are also among the most complex and heterogeneous ones encountered in the subsurface. Reservoirs in clinoform systems are difficult to characterize because they show two main types of complexity: complex...

Elewaut, K. (author)
Water production is a growing problem within the oil industry, as oil and gas fields mature worldwide and water breakthrough becomes more and more common. Often water production leads to reduction in productivity and reduction of the ultimate hydrocarbon recovery from a field. The challenges we face in regard to water production are outlined in...

Taal-van Koppen, J.K.J. (author)
Fractured reservoirs are notoriously difficult to characterize because the resolution of seismic data is too low to detect fractures whereas borehole data is detailed but sparse. Therefore, outcrops can be of great support in gaining knowledge of the three-dimensional geometry of fracture networks, their connectivity and individual properties....

Castelijns, H.J. (author)
An oil-soluble chemical (OSC) is a chemical substance which is soluble and chemically inert in oil, but reacts with water to form a gel. Application of an OSC can be found in oil- and gas production. An increased water production, which usually occurs in mature oil fields, can be remedied by injecting the OSC in the near-wellbore area. The OSC...

Groenenberg, R.M. (author)
The production potential of deep-water reservoirs is primarily determined by rock bulk volume, porosity and permeability. Quantification of the geometry and spatial distribution of reservoir sands in deep-water deposits can provide crucial information to assess sand body volume, connectivity and the distribution of permeability baffles. This...

Toxopeus, G. (author)
An optimal use of shared-earth modeling is hampered by the fact that simulating a migrated image that can be compared directly to the real migrated image is time-consuming. The key to enable iterative testing of different geological scenarios is to filter a shared-earth model by a spatial resolution filter to simulate a migrated image. The...

The objective of this study is to develop methods for extracting and quantifying sedimentary bodies in 3D high-resolution seismic data. A case study was used with an exceptionally high-resolution seismic and a large number of wells: the Palaeocene Tambaredjo field in Suriname. A large-scale interactive 3D visualization system was used to permit...
