In this compact version of his EAGE Education Tour (EET 5), Jörg Herwanger (Ikon Science, previously Schlumberger) discusses the process of building and calibrating geomechanical models using 3D and 4D seismic data. He analyzes the three main uses that seismic data provide in building geomechanical models: horizon and fault interpretation for building structural models, AVO inversion and rock physics models for creating mechanical property models, and for model calibration. Herwanger elaborates on these three points in two case studies. The first case study presents a 3D exploration geomechanical model. The second study presents a 4D geomechanical model used for field development planning. The accompanying book is available in the EAGE bookshop: http://bookshop.eage.org/Webshop/prod... This video is part of EAGE Online Education Programme. The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) is a global professional, non-profit association for geoscientists and engineers. EAGE strives to promote innovation and technical progress and aims to foster communication and cooperation between those working in, studying or interested in these fields.
