The 2e of Seismic Stratigraphy and Depositional Facies Models summarizes basic seismic interpretation techniques and demonstrates the benefits of integrated reservoir studies for hydrocarbon exploration. Topics are presented from a practical point of view and are supported by well-illustrated case histories. The reader is taken from a basic level to more advanced study techniques. The presented modern geophysical techniques allow more accurate prediction of the changes in subsurface geology. Dynamics of sedimentary environments are discussed their relation to global controling factors, and a link is made to high-resolution sequence stratigraphy. The interest in seismic stratigraphic techniques to interpret reflection datasets is well established. The advent of sophisticated subsurface reservoir studies and 4D monitoring for optimizing the hydrocarbon production in existing fields demonstrate the importance of the 3D seismic methodology. The added value of reflection seismics to the petroleum industry has clearly been proven over the last few decades. Seismic profiles and 3D cubes form a vast and robust data source to unravel the structure of the subsurface. Larger offsets and velocity anisotropy effects give access to more details on reservoir flow properties like fracture density, porosity and permeability distribution. Elastic inversion and modeling may tell something about the change in petrophysical parameters. Seismic investigations provide a vital tool for the delineation of subtle hydrocarbon traps, and they are the basis for understanding the regional basin framework and the stratigraphic subdivision. Seismic stratigraphy combines two very different scales of observation: the seismic and well control. The systematic approach applied in seismic stratigraphy explains why many workers are using the principles to evaluate their seismic observations. Discusses the link between seismic stratigraphic principles and sequence stratigraphy Provides techniques for seismic reservoir characterization as well as well control Analyzes inversion, AVO and seismic attributes

Hydrocarbon exploration and production incorporate great technology challenges for the oil and gas industry. In order to meet the world's future demand for oil and gas, further technological advance is needed, which in turn requires research across multiple disciplines, including mathematics, geophysics, geology, petroleum engineering, signal processing, and computer science. This book addresses important aspects and fundamental concepts in hydrocarbon exploration and production. Moreover, new developments and recent advances in the relevant research areas are discussed, whereby special emphasis is placed on mathematical methods and modelling. The book reflects the multi-disciplinary character of the hydrocarbon production workflow, ranging from seismic data imaging, seismic analysis and interpretation and geological model building, to numerical reservoir simulation. Various challenges concerning the production workflow are discussed in detail. The thirteen chapters of this joint work, authored by international experts from academic and industrial institutions, include survey papers of expository character as well as original research articles. Large parts of the material presented in this book were developed between November 2000 and April 2004 through the European research and training network NetAGES, "Network for Automated Geometry Extraction from Seismic". The new methods described here are currently being implemented as software tools at Schlumberger Stavanger Research, one of the world's largest service providers to the oil industry.

Während noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten die Forschung auf dem Gebiet der Maschinendynamik hauptsächlich den Kolbenmaschinen galt, ist mittlerweile eine Akzentverschiebung zu den Maschinen mit ausschließlich rotierenden Teilen, wie Turbomaschinen und Elektro motoren eingetreten. Das hängt einmal damit zusammen, daß Gas turbinen, Turbopumpen, Turboverdichter und Elektromotoren Anwen dungsgebiete erobert haben, die früher Kolbenmaschinen vorbehalten waren. Außerdem sind durch das Bestreben, die Leistungsgewichte durch Drehzahlerhöhungen zu verringern, Probleme aufgetreten, wie beispiels weise Fragen der Laufstabilität, die früher ohne Bedeutung für die Praxis waren. Daher wurde die Forschung auf diesem Gebiet in den letzten Jahren intensiviert. In dieser Einführung in die Dynamik biegeelastischer Läufer haben wir versucht, die Fülle interessanter, oft sogar verblüffender Phänomene am einfachsten Rotormodell darzustellen. Wir haben uns auf die Behand lung des Laval-Läufers - der elastischen Welle mit aufgesetzter Scheibe - beschränkt, an dem sich bereits die wichtigsten Erscheinungen auf zeigen lassen. Da die Zahl der Freiheitsgrade niedrig ist, ist meist noch eine geschlossene Lösung der Bewegungsgleichungen möglich. Mit diesem Buch wenden wir uns an Studenten der Hochschulen und an Ingenieure in der Praxis. Wir hoffen, daß durch den sparsamen Ge brauch der höheren Mathematik das Verständnis auch dem Anfänger wesentlich erleichtert wird. Verbesserungsvorschläge und Hinweise auf Fehler nehmen wir gern entgegen.

Geological maps remain a fundamental tool in earth science. They provide an essential link as geology continues to expand and diversify; computer methods are adding further to their power and versatility. Hence it is more important than ever that students of the Earth are familiar with the principles of working with geological maps. This book introduces geological maps in a clear, readable and practical way. Abstract and idealistic examples (so common in other treatments of the subject) have been avoided and almost all the illustrations used are taken from real maps and real situations around the world. This new edition has been substantially revised and provides worked solutions to the numerous map exercises. Extensive use of three dimensional diagrams and eight colour maps coupled with the up-to-date and lively text will ensure that this book remains the standard reference for students of earth science. New chapters on wider uses of geological maps, such as in environmental planning and in understanding the landscape around us, will also make the book indispensable for environmental scientists and geographers, and of interest to amateur geologists. Contents * Some Fundamentals of Geological Maps * The Nature of Geological Maps: The 'Ten Mile' Map of the UK and the 1:2500000 Map of the USA * The Three-Dimensional Aspect: Structure Contours * Measurements in Three-Dimensions: Strike and Dip, Formation Thickness and Depth * Geological Cross Sections * Visual Assessment of Outcrop Patterns: Horizontal and Dipping Formations * Unconformities * Folds * Faults * Igneous and Metamorphic Rocks: Mineral and Superficial Deposits * Geological History from Maps * Maps in Environmental Geology * Wider Uses of Geological Maps: Understanding the Landscape * The Heritage of Geological Maps * The Production of Geological Maps
