This presentation demonstrates how 3D seismic data will contribute significantly to the understanding of the Marcellus. Geophysical analysis and evaluation, although in the early stages, look very promising for optimizing well locations.

Topics include:

Introduction to the Marcellus Shale/data
Vertical Calibration & Resolution
Spatial Resolution & Geometric Attributes
Anisotropic/Rock Property Attributes
Density and Orientation of Micro-fractures
Physical Basis
Velocities dependence on fractures’ direction
Velocity Ellipse
Difference between fast and slow velocities (anisotropy) is a measure of fracture density
Elliptical Inversion (EI) to estimate anisotropy
