3-D Seismic Interpretation and Fault Sealing Assessment of X-Field, Deep Offshore Niger Delta

Ifanegan Ayomide Samson and Olisa Benson Akinbode

Abstract: The understanding of sealing integrity of faults are crucial to reservoir management and productivity studies in the Niger Delta field. Faults are geological structures which can serve as seals or migration pathway for reservoir fluids. This research involved the use of Shale Gouge Ratio (SGR) algorithm to assess the sealing capacity of faults in the X Field, Deep Offshore Niger Delta. Well logs and seismic data were utilized for the study and petrophysical parameters of the reservoirs such as volume of shale, porosity, permeability and water saturation were estimated. Faults, structural maps, fault juxtapositions, fault flow parameters (such as Shale Gouge Ratio, Fault Permeability and Fault Transmissibility) were mapped and further computations were carried out to help determine the capacity of faults that may eventually prevent the flow of hydrocarbons in and out of the mapped reservoirs.
