The elastodynamic Marchenko method removes overburden interactions obscuring the target information. This method either relies on separability of the so-called focusing and Green's functions or requires an accurate initial estimate of the focusing and Green's function overlap. Hitherto, F1- and G-+ have been assumed separable, whereas F1+ and...

Characterizing the mechanical and hydraulic properties of fractures is crucial in hydrocarbon and geothermal field development. Contrary to passive microseismic measurements, active seismic measurements using a borehole, e.g., VSP or sonic logging, have a potential to address aseismic fractures. However, there is a considerable scale gap between...

A potential solution to mitigate the adverse effects of viscous fingering, gravity override, and reservoir heterogeneity on the efficiency of gas injection in porous media is to inject the gas with a solution containing surface-active agents such as surfactants or nanoparticles. The efficiency of these processes largely depends on the generation...

Mass-lumped finite elements on tetrahedra offer more flexibility than their counterpart on hexahedra for the simulation of seismic wave propagation, but there is no general recipe for their construction, unlike as with hexahedra. Earlier, we found new elements up to degree 4 that have significantly less nodes than previously known elements by...

Time-lapse seismics has a wide range of application in different scales, from near-surface to resource exploration. Crosshole seismics is used to characterize fluid reservoirs and to obtain highly resolved rock/soil-dynamic parameters e.g., elastic moduli and Poisson ratio. Developments in distributed acoustic sensing shows the potential of...

For a long time free surface related multiple reflection were removed before further processing was done. Based on the recently developed Marchenko type redatuming theory a theory was developed that is able to remove surface related and internal multiples during the redatuming step. This requires some model information that is avoided by...

Forecasting induced seismicity responses for field data is difficult if no detailed model of the subsurface is available, which generally is the case. As an alternative, reflection data of the subsurface and a non-detailed background model can be used in the Marchenko method to obtain virtual receivers in the subsurface. By employing homogeneous...

In the phase of oil drilling, mud filtrate penetrates into porous formations and alters the pore fluid properties. This complicates well logging exploration, and inevitably gives rise to shift in reservoir estimation. Logging engineers deem mud invasion a harm and attempt to eliminate its impact on logging data exploration. However, from our...

Natural fractures conduct fluids in subsurface reservoirs. Quick and realistic predictions of the fracture network organization and its fluid flow efficiency from limited amount of data is critical to optimize resources productivity. We recently developed a method based on multiple point statistics (MPS) technique to produce geologically...

Surfactant-alternating-gas (SAG) is often the injection method for foam enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in order to improve injectivity. However, liquid injectivity can be very poor once foam is created in the near-wellbore region. In a previous study, we reported core-flood experiments on liquid injectivity after foam flooding and liquid...

We compare two data-driven internal multiple reflection elimination schemes derived from regular Marchenko equations and Inverse Scattering Series (ISS). The scheme derived from regular Marchenko equations creates a new data set without internal multiple reflections. The scheme derived from ISS is equal to the result after the second...

Time-reversal acoustics, seismic interferometry, back propagation, source-receiver redatuming and imaging by double focusing are all based in some way or another on Green's theorem. An implicit assumption for all these methods is that data are available on a closed boundary, a condition that is never met in geophysical practice. As a...

Characterizing subsurface fractures is a key to developing hydrocarbon and geothermal fields, as well as providing fundamental information on fracture system relevant to regional seismotectonics. Seismic characterization of fractures has generally been based on the effective medium theory, which considers seismically invisible small fractures....

Crosswell seismic measurements enable obtaining high resolution, high accuracy images of the subsurface between boreholes. They are, however, generally expensive considering the need of deployment of special downhole sources. In this study, we develop a novel nonlinear waveform inversion to estimate velocity structures between two vertical...

We present the results of adapting seismic interferometry (SI) for reflection imaging in mineral exploration. We use a unique dataset of one-month ambient-noise recordings acquired with large-N array (~1000 receivers) deployed in a regular grid (50 m receiver interval, 200 m line interval) directly above the known mineralisation and underground...

We present a novel nonlinear formulation for modeling reactive-compositional transport in the presence of complex phase behavior related to dissolution and precipitation in multi-phase systems. This formulation is based on the consistent element balance reduction of the molar (overall composition) formulation. To...

We explore and develop POD-based deflation methods to accelerate the solution of large-scale linear systems resulting from two-phase flow simulation. The techniques here presented collect information from the system in a POD basis, which is later used in a deflation scheme. The snapshots required to obtain the POD basis are captured in two ways:...

Marchenko Imaging is a new technology in geophysics, which enables us to retrieve Green's functions at any point in the subsurface having only reflection data. One of the assumptions of the Marchenko method is that the medium is lossless. One way to circumvent this assumption is to find a compensation parameter for the lossy reflection series so...

The main challenge for predictive simulation of carbonate reservoirs is associated with large uncertainties in the geological characterization with multiple features including fractures and cavities.

Accurate numerical simulation of coupled fluid flow and heat transfer in heterogeneous geothermal reservoirs demand for high resolution computational grids. The resulting fine-scale discrete systems--though crucial for accurate predictions--are typically upscaled to lower resolution systems due to computational efficiency concerns. Therefore,...
