Great Plains Seismogenic Study
Seismogenic reservoirs – those affected by earthquakes – can be interpreted throughout the Upper Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway which extended from Alaska to Texas starting about 100 MY ago. PFS Interpretations Ltd. (PFS) is studying the effects of faulting and fracturing of strata within the Great Plains area.
Surface geology, well log data and seismic interpretations show that most reservoirs here can be interpreted using seismogenic models. The study is not mapping geology tops or seismic data - they study is presenting new predictable models based on simple rules (click here to see the working titles) and increase our geotechnical understanding of the Western Interior Seaway, where applicable.
We have some exciting results to present in these studies! Simple models range from surface mass wasting to shallow reservoir fracturing over large areas. The most exciting results involve fairways for reservoirs such as the Cardium or Dunvegan in Canada and their homotaxial equivalents in the United States.
The study will be complete and available here in April 2019; we are offering early subscribers a 10% discount until study completion. We have interpreted numerous seismic datasets in Canada, and we are examining core right now. The well log cross-sections are complete but they are very simple; they are easily updated as new wellbore data is released from confidentiality.
