“ChattingWith” Imperial Barrel Award – University of Naples Federico II

AAPG’s Imperial Barrel Award Program (IBA) is an annual prospective basin evaluation competition for geoscience graduate students from universities around the world. University teams compete to win scholarship funds for their geoscience department and the international recognition that comes from competing or winning in the competition. The program is rigorous and contributes to AAPG’s mission of promoting petroleum geoscience training and advancing the careers of geoscience students. The judges will select the winning team based on the technical quality, clarity and originality of presentation.

Seismic anisotropy, that is to say the directional dependence of seismic velocity, is quite common in sedimentary formations and is often linked to the presence of shale. If not correctly taken into account it can strongly affect surface seismic data interpretation, seismic to well tie and azimuth versus offset analysis. From the analysis of two large databases of up to 800 ‘shaly’ samples in a broad sense, including shales but also mudshale, clayshale, siltstone, argillite, claystone, siltshale, mudstone, we demonstrate that seismic anisotropy in such formations is to a large extent determined by factors other than compaction processes, such as depositional environment, chemical composition of fluid, silt fraction, etc. Furthermore, the alignment of the individual clay platelets, main constituents of shales, can explain most of the anisotropy measurements of the databases. Assuming the elastic properties of the individual clay platelets, we propose simple plots for straightforwardly quantifying the Legendre Orientation Distribution Function coefficients and of the clay platelet alignment from the measurement of seismic anisotropy parameters.
