Develop innovative seismic-based methodologies and workflows for the incremental recovery of hydrocarbons from known and undiscovered karst-modified reservoirs within the onshore continental United States.



  • Calibrate new multi-trace seismic attributes to advance imaging of hydrocarbon reservoirs.
  • Develop attribute-based, cost-effective workflows to better identify, characterize, and quantify karst-modified carbonate reservoirs and fracture systems.
  • Improve accuracy and predictiveness of geomodels and reservoir simulations.
