Effects of mining subsidence observed by time-lapse seismic reflection profiling

Al-Rawahy, Salim Y. S. January 1995 (has links)
Extracting coal from underground mineworkings causes the overlying rocks to subside with associated changes in the stress regime. The aim of the study reported here was to apply the surface seismic reflection method to study the effect of subsidence on seismic velocity. Two sets of time-lapse surveys were carried out over two longwall mining panels in the Selby Coalfield. Seismic lines were profiled parallel and perpendicular to adjacent panels H45 and H46, respectively. A total of twenty-one repeated surveys were carried out along the two lines over a period of three years. The effect monitored was due to mining in the Bamsley Seam, at 550 m depth. As mining progressed, the traveltime of a strong reflection event from an anhydrite bed at 150 m depth was measured after processing the data with standard techniques. An overall increase in traveltime of about 4 % was observed. The progressive increase in traveltime over panel H45 correlated well with empirical calculations of differential subsidence between the surface and the anhydrite. However, the magnitude of the change must principally be accounted for by a decrease in seismic velocity, associated with a reduction in the vertical effective stress. Although the traveltime over panel H46 was also found to increase, and to correlate quite well with die expected differential subsidence, the agreement was less good along this transverse profile. This is attributed to asymmetric subsidence effects because the ground on the SW side of the panel had already been worked by panel H45, but the ground on the NE side was unworked. At the time of each seismic survey across panel H46, the profile was also levelled, and it was found that surface subsidence values along the profile increased towards panel H45. As most of the subsidence caused by mining panel H45 would have been completed by the time the H46 profile was surveyed, the effect must be at least partly attributed to asymmetric subsidence due to panel H46. Where the ground had been weakened by subsidence due to mining H45, near-total subsidence from mining H46 took place rapidly; but in the previously unworked ground on the NE side of panel H46, the residual subsidence was presumably delayed by competent strata in the overburden. Further work is needed to confirm whether this explanation is correct.

Seismic reflection characteristics of the Precambrian and Upper Cretaceous reservoirs in Nafoora-Augila oil field, Sirte Basin, Libya

Elazezi, Mohamed Massoud January 1992 (has links)
The research project aimed to establish the seismic characteristics of the Upper Cretaceous and Precambrian basement reservoirs in the area of the Nafoora-Augila field. The characteristics studied include acoustic impedance, amplitude, phase, and reflection strength, derived from seismic profiles closely tied to well data. The project demonstrates to a certain degree the successful use of combined techniques to assist in the interpretation of the seismic data by improving its quality. The techniques included: one-dimensional and two-dimensional modelling, seismic attributes and seismic inversion techniques. The generated synthetic seismograms show a reasonably good match with observed seismic data at the well locations. The mismatch between reflection interfaces at some intervals indicated that it could be the result of inaccurate sonic measurements. Investigation on the sonic readings was conducted in the laboratory by measuring the transit time for core samples obtained from these intervals. The laboratory measurements generally supported the sonic. Two-dimensional modelling was carried out in order to compare synthetic sections with the observed seismic sections. The comparison indicated that model sections can be used for the recognition and confirmation of the reflection events of interest in the observed seismic sections and especially the seismic expression of the thin layers such as the Rachmat shale and the Bahi sandstone. The presence of multiples on the final seismic sections has obscured the primary reflection events of interest. Velocity analysis using the velocity spectra technique is conducted to improve the stack of the seismic data and minimize the effect of multiples. The newly picked stacking velocities show better results than those picked by the contractor by using the velocity function technique. The post-stack deconvolution was applied to attenutate the existing multiples by testing different deconvolution parameters. The tested parameters gave very encouraging results by bringing out distinctive reflectors and suppressing multiples. Seismic attributes and inverse modelling were used to enhance the interpretation of the seismic data. The use of the attributes on the observed seismic data are generally of little use due to the poor quality of the data. However, the amplitude and the phase displays show a reasonably good response even with the effect of noise and multiples. Comparison of pseudo impedance logs and sections with well impedance logs and seismic sections shows fair to reasonably good comparison.
