Sequence Stratigraphy of Rift Successions - A Conceptual ModelDue to the basins asymmetry and the subsidence controlled by one major fault zone, the accommodation space within a rift basin is variable, and the popular passive-margin-based sequence stratigraphic scheme, where depositional systems tracts develop following a predictable order during a complete cycle of base-level change, is not applicable. For a practical and useful stratigraphic analysis of rift basins, conceptual and methodological adaptations are required. The present paper discusses and exemplifies these adaptations, proposing an integrative sequence stratigraphic conceptual model with two different scenarios (gradual and punctuated subsidence) and defining three tectono-stratigraphic phases: (1) the rift initiation phase, which is characterized by isolated and restricted faults which create incipient half-grabens, infilled with fluvial and deltaic facies; (2) the rift development phase, during which the initial rift faults tend to link and to form a larger and deeper depositional area, recording lacustrine facies with an overall retrogradational trend, and; (3) rift termination phase, when the accommodation decreases, the sedimentation regime is progradational, and the rift basin is filled with fluvio-deltaic and eolian facies. The model is illustrated with examples from two adjacent rift basins from the northeastern region of Brazil, the RecÃ”ncavo and Camamu basins. |

Seismic Attributes and Time-Frequency analysis by using Wigner-Ville distribution combined with the Maximum Entropy MethodThe growing need for more defined images of seismic attributes for analysis and description of reservoirs encourages the development of new methods that are capable of displaying high resolution images of seismic attributes. Therewith, we propose the use of the method called Maximum Entropy of Wigner-Ville (MEM-WV), that combines the distribution of Wigner-Ville with the Burg's Maximum Entropy method, in order to get the high resolution power spectrum of the seismic signal. In this method, the power spectrum is obtained by doing Fourier Transform (FT) of each Kernel term of Wigner-Ville, and then by estimating and extending each Kernel sequence. In order to better describe hydrocarbon reservoirs, this work will favor the achievement of structural, stratigraphic and geomorphological attributes with higher resolution. |

Nova abordagem iterativa e multifrequÃªncia em tomografia geofÃsica de difraÃ§Ã£oSeismic tomography is used in reservoir geophysics as an important method for high resolution imaging. The classic Born approach, used in monochromatic diffraction tomography in the condition of weak scattering, has as a limitation the need for prior knowledge of the background velocity. In this work we propose several iterative approaches of tomographic inversion, where the background velocity field is updated at each iteration, but the knowledge true background is not required. In addition to the iterative process, one can choose to use a single frequency or several frequencies at each inversion. In the first approach, a single frequency is used, which is kept constant. In the second, at each iteration, several frequencies are used simultaneously, which are also kept constant. In the third, in addition to the background velocity, the working frequency is also updated. Finally, in the last approach, the multiple frequencies used simultaneously, are updated iteration to iteration. The proposed approaches were tested in a synthetic model containing a dipping layer and a paleochannel with well to well acquisition geometry. The data were contaminated with Gaussian noise. The iterative process, together with the use of multiple frequencies, generated good results with small velocity and model parameter errors. |

Deâ€“Primary TTIâ€“RTM Using the Pâ€“Pure Analytical WavefieldBased on the relation between the real and imaginary components of the analytical wavefield, an im- proved scheme to construct its imaginary part by solving the TTI pureâ€“P wave equation only once is proposed in this work. Our scheme requires the calculation of the first time derivative of the real wave- field and the application of the inverse of a pseudoâ€“differential operator. For time extrapolation of the real wavefield and its first order time derivative, we employed the rapid expansion method, which is unconditionally stable and free of numerical noise. To apply the spatial and spectral terms of the inverse pseudoâ€“differential operator in an explicit manner, the definition of the wavefront propagation direction is introduced. The proposed method can improve the computation of analytical wavefield, therefore, separate the wavefield into downâ€“ and upâ€“going components for each time step in an explicit way. This allows us to employ the causal imaging condition for TTIâ€“RTM practical applications. Moreover, the deâ€“primary migration result shows that it successfully remove the lowâ€“wavenumber artifacts typical from conventional RTM. |

Comparison of Time-Frequency Localization Methods and Spectral EvolutionThe main purpose in the present work is the comparison of some methods that can be applied for a time-frequency map distribution of seismic data, that is typically a multi-sensor technique. The generalized data attribute analysis is potentially a data-driven methodology to complement geological information for interpretation purpose. A seismic signal carries the information from the subsurface, and the goal is the oil and gas exploration in a porous and fractured medium. The propagating signal samples the geology by the transmission and reflection seismic fields, and the characteristics of the medium is present in the data under geometric and frequency properties. And the important principle underlying the t âˆ’ f decomposition is that an arbitrary signal is caused by a linear superposition of elementary wavelets, but goes further to an atomic decomposition, in the sense that of â€œwellâ€ localization in time and frequency. |

Pore pressure estimation by using a modified boundary element methodThis paper resumes a research for solving numerically a three-dimensional problem of elastic stationary oscillations, with a particular application to the case pore pressure in sedimentary rocks. The method can be used not only for applications in oil and gas exploration, but also for modeling buried structures and structural components such as foundations, tunnels, trenches, cavities, etc. The basis of this method is the construction of integral equations kernels as a response to an analogue Delta loading, or to its derivatives. The finiteness of the kernels gives the possibility to increase accuracy in many orders, and to solve the elastic problem in the case of discontinuity in the normal vector to the contouring S surface to the goal volume V. As an example, we show that the variation of the characteristics of the static stress state under the influence of pore pressure depends essentially on the contact geometry, and a little on the type of boundary condition at the contact. |

Rock physical properties controlling P-wave dispersion and attenuation in outcrop carbonate specimensSeismic waves propagation in dry and saturated elastic media gives insight into the rock physical properties. The poroelasticity Biot theory provides us with a theoretical basis for understanding the phenomena of low-frequency seismic waves dispersion and attenuation due to wave-induced fluid flow. One of the most accepted mechanisms to explain the phenomenon of wave attenuation in saturated porous media is the fluid flow induced by the wave on the mesoscopic scale, i.e., a scale larger than the pore size and much smaller than the wavelength. This work has the aim of investigating the influence of petrophysical and elastic properties of rock parameters in P-wave dispersion and attenuation in carbonate samples. It was performed through laboratory evaluation, using static and dynamic measures of the P-wave velocity under dry and saturated conditions. Therefore, here we applied Gassmann and Geertsma and Smith (1961) approaches, for estimate P-wave dispersion, Dvorkin and Mavko (2006) model to estimate the attenuation and determination of the characteristic frequency by interlayer flow White et al. (1975) model on the mesoscopic scale. |

PropagaÃ§Ã£o de ondas ultrassÃ´nicas elÃ¡sticas em modelos sintÃ©ticos com heterogeneidades esfÃ©ricasThe manufacture of synthetic rocks samples has a great importance in the study of the elastic properties of the rocks based on the variation of heterogeneities. In this present work we constructed synthetic sandstones with different number of heterogeneities in the samples. In this work we constructed and analyzed (in dry condition and ambient conditions) eleven samples were constructed in this work. In total, ten heterogeneous samples and an isotropic sample for reference. The heterogeneous samples were divided in two groups (A abd B). Group A with heterogeneities of 3.75 mm diameter and group B with heterogeneities of 5.67 mm diameter. From P- and S-waveforms were measured Vp and Vs velocities as well as Vp/Vs ratio. As expected both velocities decrease with increasing of scatter in the sample. However, was noted a decreasing more pronounced for Vp velocities for both groups and VS for group B. |
