The JIP developed an advanced seismic analysis method to detect shallow sands that are prone to SWF and to identify which sands will actually flow. The JIP improved detection and identification methods for SWF, which will reduce the occurrence of and risk of SWF. JIP work included laboratory measurements of affected rocks and sediments, pre-processing multi-component seismic lines, computer modeling, and use of specialized seismic analysis techniques.
The principal investigator presented a paper on the JIP at OTC 2000. The project is completed. The proprietary period for the report has ended.
