ExxonMobil advances in interactive volume Previous HitinterpretationNext Hit and collaborative visualization technologies have been and continue to be of immense benefit to the exploitation and production of hydrocarbons in the deepwater basins of Nigeria.

In-house, proprietary volume Previous HitinterpretationNext Hit technologies have been developed as extensions to existing vendor software (e.g. attribute volumes, multiple forms of sculpting, automated and interactive seed detection). These technologies have been applied by work-groups company-wide, and over time their experiences have led to a variety of customized workflows and work processes that enable the geoscientist to perform or enhance operations such as seismic volume reconnaissance, rapid structural Previous HitinterpretationNext Hit, geologic feature extraction and Previous HitinterpretationNext Hit, pressure prediction, reserves assessment and interactive well path planning and monitoring.

Using examples from NNPC/MPN Joint Venture fields, this paper shows how workflow combinations of complex sculpting, seed detection techniques, and advanced fault Previous HitinterpretationTop technologies, have allowed us to gain greater insights into deepwater Nigerian reservoirs.
