Time-lapse multi-component seismic monitoring, Delhi Field, Louisiana
Thomas L. Davis characterizes the Delhi Field in Louisiana by monitoring flow paths associated with immiscible carbon dioxide flooding. Time-lapse, multi-component seismic data were acquired during the start-up of the field rejuvenation effort at Delhi Field, Louisiana. The purpose of the study was to characterize the reservoir by monitoring flow paths associated with immiscible carbon dioxide flooding. Flow paths in the reservoir are associated with primary depositional facies involving fluvial deltaic deposition. These flow paths cannot be assessed by wells alone making seismic monitoring a valuable tool in the enhanced oil recovery project at Delhi.
