Article
Latin America is a region of great variety. Tequila (Mexico), caipirinha (Brazil), pisco (Peru, Chile, Ecuador), aguardiente, and rum (Colombia, Venezuela) are well-known names for most geophysicists around the globe. A great variety of people and cultures, landscapes, flora and fauna, politics, and religions makes Latin America a very diverse and...
Article
The gas fields of North of Paria, offshore eastern Venezuela, present a unique opportunity for amplitude variations with offset (AVO) characterization of reservoirs containing different fluids: gas-condensate, gas (methane) and water (brine). AVO studies for two of the wells in the area, one with gas-condensate and the other with gas (methane) satu...
Article
While many geophysical engineering departments around the world have suffered a drastic drop in enrollment, the newly established degree in geophysical engineering at Simon Bolivar University in Caracas, Venezuela, has attracted more than 50 undergraduates. Eighteen of these students are in their third year of study, having switched their majors fr...
Article
Coal does not flow. A ton of coal and a barrel of oil are approximately the same price partly because the liquid fuel is easier to move. Coal, on the other hand, is easier to find and much cheaper per BTU than oil but the underground mining of coal involves mechanically chopping off every hunk and carrying it to the surface. A man with a pick and s...
Article
When a shot is fired inside a coal seam, much of the seismic energy produced may be trapped inside the seam. F.F. Evison first observed this phenomenon in 1955 while working in a coal mine in New Zealand. Developments in the subsequent 35 years have produced a powerful technique for predicting (before mining commences) the characteristics of a part...
Article
High-amplitude anomalies in reflection seismic data have been related, in many cases, to the presence of gas in a sandstone reservoir. In this paper two sets of data from two different gas fields in Venezuela are compared, both showing high amplitude anomalies which were interpreted as associated with the presence of gas ('bright spots'). One field...
Article
The results are described for a hole-to-hole seam wave study conducted in the Zulia Coal basin of Northwestern Venezuela in June 1979, and to prove the applicability of hole-to-hole surveys in mapping the continuity of coal beds. Some conclusions are as follows: 1) An event having three characteristics of a seam wave is present in the records. 2) I...
