    • Fluid Flow Property Estimation from Seismic Scattering Data 

      Brown, Stephen; Fang, Xinding (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2012)
      We present a methodology for relating seismic scattering signals from fractures to the fluid permeability field of the fracture network. The workflow is used to interpret seismic scattering signals for the reservoir ...
    • Geophysical Monitoring of Multiple Phase Saturation of Rocks: Application to CO[subscript 2] Sequestration 

      Brown, Stephen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2011)
      4-D seismic techniques rely on measuring changes in velocity over time in order to detect changes during activities such as CO[subscript 2] flooding and storage in a reservoir. Wang et al. [1998] detail a laboratory study ...
    • Integration of Geology, Rock-Physics, Logs, and Pre-stack Seismic for Reservoir Porosity Estimation 

      Al Muhaidib, Abdulaziz; Sen, Mrinal K.; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2011)
      The main objective of this paper is to obtain reservoir properties, such as porosity, both at the well locations and in the inter-well regions from seismic data and well logs. The seismic and well-log datasets are from an ...
    • Joint flow-seismic inversion for characterizing fractured reservoirs: theoretical approach and numerical modeling 

      Kang, Peter K.; Zheng, Yingcai; Fang, Xinding; Wojcik, Rafal; McLaughlin, Dennis; e.a. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2013)
      Traditionally, seismic interpretation is performed without any account of the flow behavior. Here, we present a methodology to characterize fractured geologic media by integrating flow and seismic data. The key element of ...
    • Numerical Modeling of Transport Properties and Comparison to Laboratory Measurements 

      Smith, Wave; Zhan, Xin; Schwartz, Larry; Morgan, Frank Dale; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2008-06-10)
      Transport properties, such as permeability and electrical conductivity, are important in many geophysical and petroleum applications. The microstructure of a porous medium and physical characteristics of the solid and ...
    • A Numerical Study of the Effects of Wave-Induced Fluid Flow in Porous Media: Linear Solver 

      Zhang, Yang; Song, Limin; Deffenbaugh, Max; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2009)
      In this paper, we present a computational method to simulate wave propagation in porous rocks saturated with Newtonian fluids over a range of frequencies of interest. The method can use a digital representation of a rock ...
    • Pore Scale Modeling of Rock Properties and Comparison to Laboratory Measurements 

      Zhan, Xin; Schwartz, Larry; Smith, Wave; Toksoz, M. Nafi; Morgan, Frank Dale (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2009)
      The microstructure of a porous medium and the physical characteristics of the solid and fluid phases determine the macroscopic transport properties of the medium. The purpose of this paper is to test numerical calculations ...
    • Seismoelectric measurements on artifical porous media and Berea sandstone 

      Schakel, Menne D.; Zhu, Zhenya; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2009)
      Seismic to electromagnetic wave conversion has been proposed as a possible exploration method. We present laboratory measurements of the conversion of an acoustic wave into electric potential, which occurs at a ...
