Seismic Exploration of Hydrocarbons in Heterogeneous Reservoirs
Seismic Exploration of Hydrocarbons in Heterogeneous Reservoirs: New Theories, Methods and Applications is based on the field research conducted over the past decade by an authoring team of five of the world¿s leading geoscientists.
In recent years, the exploration targets of world's oil companies have become more complex. The direct detection of hydrocarbons based on seismic wave data in heterogeneous oil/gas reservoirs has become a hot spot in the research of applied and exploration geophysics. The relevant theories, approaches and applications, which the authors have worked on for years and have established mature technical processes for industrial application, are of significant meaning to the further study and practice of engineers, researchers and students in related area.
- Authored by a team of geophysicists in industry and academia with a range of field, instruction, and research experience in hydrocarbon exploration
- Nearly 200 figures, photographs, and illustrations aid in the understanding of the fundamental concepts and techniques
- Presents the latest research in wave propagation theory, unconventional resources, experimental study, multi-component seismic processing and imaging, rock physics modeling and quantitative seismic interpretation
- Sophisticated approach to research systematically forms an industrial work flow for geoscience and engineering practice
PortraitJosé M. Carcione was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He received the degree "Licenciado in Ciencias Físicas" from Buenos Aires University in 1978, the degree "Dottore in Fisica" from Milan University in 1984 and the PhD in Geophysics from Tel-Aviv University in 1987. This year he was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt scholarship for a position at the Geophysical Institute of Hamburg University, where he stayed from 1987 to 1989. From 1978 to 1980 he worked at the "Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica" at Buenos Aires. From 1981 to 1987 he was a research geophysicist at "Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales", the national oil company of Argentina. Presently, he is a senior geophysicist at the "Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS)" (former "Osservatorio Geofisico Sperimentale") in Trieste. He is the author of the books ¿Wave fields in real media: Theory and numerical simulation of wave propagation in anisotropic, anelastic, porous and electromagnetic media (Pergamon Press, 2001; Elsevier Science, 2007, 2015) and "Seismic exploration of hydrocarbons in heterogeneous reservoirs: New theories, methods and applications" (Elsevier Science, 2015), and has published more than 240 peer-reviewed articles.
Carcione has been a member of the commission (GEV04) for evaluation of Italian research in the field of Earth Sciences (ANVUR) in the period 2004-2010.
