Bridging the Measurement Scale Gap in Seismic and Rock Physics Characterization of Unconventional Plays Other events...
A public lecture by Dr Kyle Spikes, Department of Geological Sciences, The University of Texas, Austin and 2016 UWA Gledden Visiting Fellow.

Seismic and rock physics characterization of unconventional oil and gas plays requires the integration of data from nanometer and micron scales to the field seismic scale at 10s of meters. This range encompasses 10 to 12 orders of magnitude.

In this lecture, Dr Spikes will discuss the information we can use from these different scales, their integration, and ultimately, the limitations. For unconventional resources, the ultimate goal of geophysical characterization is to relate the elastic properties to fracturing and engineering parameters, which is a difficult task. One formation that Dr Spikes and his fellow researchers have concentrated on is the Haynesville Shale. By combining information from multiple scales, they are able to describe shales in terms of rock properties.
