Seismic While Drilling Book Review:

The purpose of this book is to give a theoretical and practical introduction to seismic-while-drilling by using the drill-bit noise. This recent technology offers important products for geophysical control of drilling. It involves aspects typical of borehole seismics and of the drilling control surveying, hitherto the sole domain of mudlogging. For aspects related to the drill-bit source performance and borehole acoustics, the book attempts to provide a connection between experts working in geophysics and in drilling. There are different ways of thinking related to basic knowledge, operational procedures and precision in the observation of the physical quantities. The goal of the book is to help "build a bridge" between geophysicists involved in seismic while drilling - who may need to familiarize themselves with methods and procedures of drilling and drilling-rock mechanics - and drillers involved in geosteering and drilling of "smart wells" - who may have to familiarize themselves with seismic signals, wave resolution and radiation. For instance, an argument of common interest for drilling and seismic while drilling studies is the monitoring of the drill-string and bit vibrations. This volume contains a large number of real examples of SWD data analysis and applications.

Advanced Seismic While Drilling System Book Review:

A breakthrough has been discovered for controlling seismic sources to generate selectable low frequencies. Conventional seismic sources, including sparkers, rotary mechanical, hydraulic, air guns, and explosives, by their very nature produce high-frequencies. This is counter to the need for long signal transmission through rock. The patent pending SeismicPULSER{trademark} methodology has been developed for controlling otherwise high-frequency seismic sources to generate selectable low-frequency peak spectra applicable to many seismic applications. Specifically, we have demonstrated the application of a low-frequency sparker source which can be incorporated into a drill bit for Drill Bit Seismic While Drilling (SWD). To create the methodology of a controllable low-frequency sparker seismic source, it was necessary to learn how to maximize sparker efficiencies to couple to, and transmit through, rock with the study of sparker designs and mechanisms for (a) coupling the sparker-generated gas bubble expansion and contraction to the rock, (b) the effects of fluid properties and dynamics, (c) linear and non-linear acoustics, and (d) imparted force directionality. After extensive seismic modeling, the design of high-efficiency sparkers, laboratory high frequency sparker testing, and field tests were performed at the University of Texas Devine seismic test site. The conclusion of the field test was that extremely high power levels would be required to have the range required for deep, 15,000+ ft, high-temperature, high-pressure (HTHP) wells. Thereafter, more modeling and laboratory testing led to the discovery of a method to control a sparker that could generate low frequencies required for deep wells. The low frequency sparker was successfully tested at the Department of Energy Rocky Mountain Oilfield Test Center (DOE RMOTC) field test site in Casper, Wyoming. An 8-in diameter by 26-ft long SeismicPULSER{trademark} drill string tool was designed and manufactured by TII. An APS Turbine Alternator powered the SeismicPULSER{trademark} to produce two Hz frequency peak signals repeated every 20 seconds. Since the ION Geophysical, Inc. (ION) seismic survey surface recording system was designed to detect a minimum downhole signal of three Hz, successful performance was confirmed with a 5.3 Hz recording with the pumps running. The two Hz signal generated by the sparker was modulated with the 3.3 Hz signal produced by the mud pumps to create an intense 5.3 Hz peak frequency signal. The low frequency sparker source is ultimately capable of generating selectable peak frequencies of 1 to 40 Hz with high-frequency spectra content to 10 kHz. The lower frequencies and, perhaps, low-frequency sweeps, are needed to achieve sufficient range and resolution for realtime imaging in deep (15,000 ft+), high-temperature (150 C) wells for (a) geosteering, (b) accurate seismic hole depth, (c) accurate pore pressure determinations ahead of the bit, (d) near wellbore diagnostics with a downhole receiver and wired drill pipe, and (e) reservoir model verification. Furthermore, the pressure of the sparker bubble will disintegrate rock resulting in an increased overall rates of penetration. Other applications for the SeismicPULSER{trademark} technology are to deploy a low-frequency source for greater range on a wireline for Reverse Vertical Seismic Profiling (RVSP) and Cross-Well Tomography. Commercialization of the technology is being undertaken by first contacting stakeholders to define the value proposition for rig site services utilizing SeismicPULSER{trademark} technologies. Stakeholders include national oil companies, independent oil companies, independents, service companies, and commercial investors. Service companies will introduce a new Drill Bit SWD service for deep HTHP wells. Collaboration will be encouraged between stakeholders in the form of joint industry projects to develop prototype tools and initial field trials. No barriers have been identified for developing, utilizing, and exploiting the low-frequency SeismicPULSER{trademark} source in a variety of applications. Risks will be minimized since Drill Bit SWD will not interfere with the drilling operation, and can be performed in a relatively quiet environment when the pumps are turned off. The new source must be integrated with other Measurement While Drilling (MWD) tools. To date, each of the oil companies and service companies contacted have shown interest in participating in the commercialization of the low-frequency SeismicPULSER{trademark} source. A technical paper has been accepted for presentation at the 2009 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in a Society of Exploration Geologists/American Association of Petroleum Geophysicists (SEG/AAPG) technical session.

Seismic While Drilling Experiment with Diamond Drilling at Brukunga South Australia Book Review:

Seismic-While-Drilling (SWD) utilises drill bit vibrations as a seismic source and receivers at the surface or in a borehole to acquire reverse VSP data. The basic processing technique is based on cross correlation to generate active shot-gather-like profiles. The successful implementation of SWD will yield time-depth information and image around the drill bit, which can aid drilling and geological understanding of the area. To study the feasibility of using diamond impregnate drill bits for seismic-while-drilling, we conducted a small pseudo 3D SWD experiment at Brukunga, South Australia. It has been used to investigate the signals generated from diamond drilling, and study the potential to use a drill bit as a seismic source. The drill bit energy for seismic imaging is influenced by the rig power setting, and the state of the drill bit (new or worn bit). The experiment shows that normally the diamond drilling frequency band is wide with strong discrete peaks, however sometimes due to changes in the drilling mode, e.g., increase or decrease the drilling power, the frequency spectrum can be smoothed. The strong peaks in the spectrum mean strong periodicity of the signal and as such, the signals do not lend themselves to standard cross correlation. Thus, we use a generalised cross correlation that produces results similar to an active shot gather-like profile.

Geophysics for Petroleum Engineers Book Review:

The process of drilling an oil or gas well requires knowledge of all geologic features expected to be encountered along the way—from the surface of the ground to the target reservoir. Thus, in addition to steering the well so as to intersect hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs, the reservoir engineer must assure to a reasonable degree of confidence that the well drills successfully and safely to the target. Geophysical measurements help ensure a successful drilling program. 3D seismic provides a picture of the subsurface from the surface to the target.

Data Analytics for Drilling Engineering Book Review:

This book presents the signal processing and data mining challenges encountered in drilling engineering, and describes the methods used to overcome them. In drilling engineering, many signal processing technologies are required to solve practical problems, such as downhole information transmission, spatial attitude of drillstring, drillstring dynamics, seismic activity while drilling, among others. This title attempts to bridge the gap between the signal processing and data mining and oil and gas drilling engineering communities. There is an urgent need to summarize signal processing and data mining issues in drilling engineering so that practitioners in these fields can understand each other in order to enhance oil and gas drilling functions. In summary, this book shows the importance of signal processing and data mining to researchers and professional drilling engineers and open up a new area of application for signal processing and data mining scientists.

Seeing Coal seam Top Ahead of the Drill Bit Through Seismic while drilling Book Review:

ABSTRACT Blast damage to the tops of coal seams due to incorrect blast standoff distances is a serious issue, costing the industry in Australia about one open‐cut mine for every ten operating mines. The current approach for mapping coal‐seam tops is through drilling and pierce‐point logging. To provide appropriate depth control with accuracy of ±0.2 m for blast hole drilling, it is typically necessary to drill deep reconnaissance boreholes on a 50 m x 50 m grid well in advance of overburden removal. Pierce‐point mapping is expensive and can be inaccurate, particularly when the seam is disturbed by rolls, faults, and other obstacles.Numerical modelling and prototype‐field testing are used in this paper to demonstrate the feasibility of two seismic‐while‐drilling‐based approaches for predicting the approach to the top of coal during blast hole drilling: (i) reverse "walk‐away" vertical seismic profiling recording, in which the drill bit vibration provides the source signal and the geophones are planted on the surface near the drill rig, and (ii) in‐seam seismic recording, in which channel waves, driven by the coupling to the coal of the seismic signal emitted by the approaching drill bit, are guided by the seam to geophones located within the seam in nearby or remote boreholes.

Diffraction Focusing Velocity Analysis and Drill Bit Tracking by SWD Book Review:

The motivation: Seismic-while-drilling (SWD) utilises drill bit vibrations as a seismic source to obtain a reverse VSP profile, which can be used to calibrate the surface seismic image, predict infront-of-bit geo-hazards, and/or for general imaging around the bore hole. However, using the drill bit as a source has known issues of narrow band spectrum and weak energy; the extent of these issues varies with different types of drill bits. As such, different data processing and imaging methods might be needed for different drill bits. In this work, we try to estimate formation velocity based on drill bit position and to locate the drill bit in the cross correlation domain, so as to test the viability of using a diamond impregnated drill bit as an effective seismic source in hard rock imaging.

Introduction to Petroleum Seismology second edition Book Review:

Introduction to Petroleum Seismology, second edition (SEG Investigations in Geophysics Series No. 12) provides the theoretical and practical foundation for tackling present and future challenges of petroleum seismology especially those related to seismic survey designs, seismic data acquisition, seismic and EM modeling, seismic imaging, microseismicity, and reservoir characterization and monitoring. All of the chapters from the first edition have been improved and/or expanded. In addition, twelve new chapters have been added. These new chapters expand topics which were only alluded to in the first edition: sparsity representation, sparsity and nonlinear optimization, near-simultaneous multiple-shooting acquisition and processing, nonuniform wavefield sampling, automated modeling, elastic-electromagnetic mathematical equivalences, and microseismicity in the context of hydraulic fracturing. Another major modification in this edition is that each chapter contains analytical problems as well as computational problems. These problems include MatLab codes, which may help readers improve their understanding of and intuition about these materials. The comprehensiveness of this book makes it a suitable text for undergraduate and graduate courses that target geophysicists and engineers as well as a guide and reference work for researchers and professionals in academia and in the petroleum industry.

Soft Computing for Reservoir Characterization and Modeling Book Review:

In the middle of the 20th century, Genrich Altshuller, a Russian engineer, analysed hundreds of thousands of patents and scientific publications. From this analysis, he developed TRIZ (G. Altshuller, "40 Principles: TRIZ Keys to Technical Innovation. TRIZ Tools," Volume 1, First Edition, Technical Innovation Center, Inc. , Worcester, MA, January 1998; Y. Salamatov, "TRIZ: The Right Solution at the Right Time. A Guide to Innovative Problem Solving. " Insytec B. V. , 1999), the theory of inventive problem solving, together with a series of practical tools for helping engineers solving technical problems. Among these tools and theories, the substance-field theory gives a structured way of representing problems, the patterns of evolution show the lifecycle of technical systems, the contradiction matrix tells you how to resolve technical contradictions, using the forty principles that describe common ways of improving technical systems. For example, if you want to increase the strength of a device, without adding too much extra weight to it, the contradiction matrix tells you that you can use "Principle 1: Segmentation," or "Principle 8: Counterweight," or "Principle 15: Dynamicity," or "Principle 40: Composite Materials. " I really like two particular ones: "Principle 1: Segmentation," and Principle 15: Dynamicity. " "Segmentation" shows how systems evolve from an initial monolithic form into a set of independent parts, then eventually increasing the number of parts until each part becomes small enough that it cannot be identified anymore.
