Bioturbated zones are frequently bypassed by oil and gas operating companies during perforation due to the perception that they are non-productive. We analysed data from wells in four fields in the Sarawak Basin, Malaysia, for selected bioturbated zones. The study included thin section, probe-permeameter, petrophysical, and routine core analysis. A bioturbation index classification scheme was established to allow semi-quantitative ranking for each foot of core.
In the current study, we introduce a simulation script to predict lithofacies types at well locations based on input from bioturbation intensity algorithm (Ali et al., 2016), this script can be used for application on shallow marine field within Malaysia.
We also used post stack seismic inversion for acoustic impedance and it proved to be a key approach to enhance the ability of predicting rock properties between wells. We generated a seismic derived lithofacies which provided the best estimate of lithofacies distribution between wells even though a well derived lithofacies had higher resolution. We calculated STOIIP using input from seismic lithofacies and porosity, and the results showed more accurate estimate of hydrocarbon in place compared with statistical approaches. Thus, the current seismic lithofacies methodology can be used for static model building and STOIIP calculation in shallow marine environments.
