Well and Seismic matching with ArcGIS® and ProMAX® via KML
Authors: Humberto Arevalo
Inconsistency between well and seismic positioning, which can arise due to the lack of communication among the technicians, can have the pernicious effect of proposing new multi-million dollar well locations incorrectly estimated from the seismic. With our methodology we are able to match and visually confirm new and old wells against newly acquired seismic via KML interface between platforms. These tools will help oil companies to diminish their dry wells due to incorrect surface positioning.
