About This Publication (Purpose and Introduction)
Purpose
This seismic and well log data set is part of a technology transfer program conducted by the Bureau of Economic Geology on behalf of the Gas Research Institute and the U.S. Department of Energy. This product provides a versatile data set that can be used for testing hardware and software products, training individuals in the use of 3-D seismic data and well log information, and ultimately illustrating the complex stratigraphy and structure of natural gas reservoirs. This technology transfer product is intended to assist gas operators and contractors in developing the skills and tools to deploy technologies that will ensure an adequate supply of natural gas resources at competitive prices. This 3-D seismic and well log data set is from Stratton field in South Texas.

Introduction

A diverse and vast resource base of 1,295 Tcf of technically recoverable natural gas resources (including proved reserves, conventional resources, and nonconventional resources) is estimated by a recent analysis of domestic petroleum supplies by the National Petroleum Council (1992). Of this resource base, 230 Tcf is predicted to be recoverable by reserve appreciation from conventional and tight gas reservoirs in the lower 48 states. The integrated application of concepts and cost-effective technologies from the disciplines of geology, engineering, geophysics, and petrophysics will be required to convert these natural gas resources into producible reserves.

In the last decade, characterization of the internal geometry of reservoirs, mainly oil reservoirs, has demonstrated a higher degree of compartmentalization than previously recognized. Nonstructural compartmentalization is primarily a function of the depositional system and, secondarily, of the diagenetic history of the reservoir. The research objective of the Bureau of Economic Geology infield reserve growth project is to define the potential for incremental gas recovery through better understanding of depositional and diagenetic heterogeneity within nonassociated natural gas reservoirs.
