Ambient Seismic Imaging – Optimizing Reservoir Recovery
The Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair is pleased to present Jeffrey Eppink as a speaker for the Wyoming Oil & Gas Fair Virtual Series event. This webinar will focus on Ambient Seismic Imaging that creates 3D maps of fluid flows within reservoirs. This technology can help maximize the efficiencies of secondary and tertiary recovery programs, optimize completions in unconventional reservoirs as well as monitor the effectiveness of carbon storage efforts.
Ambient Seismic Imaging (ASI) can continuously map, in four dimensions, areas with high fluid flow within a reservoir. Using ASI, operators can see, with high-resolution mapping, how injection fluid is moving through a reservoir in almost real time. This ability provides an outstanding opportunity for operators to continuously monitor fluid movements during improved or enhanced recovery efforts and to make adjustments accordingly to maximize a program’s effectiveness. Additionally, ASI can help optimize drilling locations by accurately mapping fracture patterns and can help to monitor and evaluate carbon storage projects.

About the Wyoming Oil & Gas Fair
Now in its 25th year, the Wyoming’s Oil and Gas Fair has brought industry leaders together to promote the very best in the oil and gas industry in Wyoming. In a world with many unknowns, rapidly shifting economic conditions, and an ever-changing regulatory environment, the landscape for the oil and gas industry is as it has never seen before.
As the event organizers, the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute’s goal this year is to offer Wyoming’s oil and gas industry a premier virtual conference event. Wyoming’s Oil and Gas Fair commits to educate, engage, and mobilize industry and state leadership to help identify problems and solutions in order to blaze a path forward and actively shape Wyoming’s energy future.
This event is FREE but registration is required. Please register by Wednesday October 27th at 5pm.
