Course description

Computer Mapping PrinciplesPractical Seismic Exploration and Development - One-week course  in applied geophysics

Seismic geophysics is a crucial tool for hydrocarbon exploration and development. This week-long program is designed to provide delegates with the fundamentals and practical applications of seismic principles, including aspects of acquisition, processing, and interpretation. Course materials place special emphasis on interpretation aspects and workflow.

Key topics for this practical course include:

  • survey design for maximizing interpretational goals such as multicomponent and azimuthal surveys,
  • processing techniques including prestack versus poststack migration
  • visualization and presentation techniques
  • general 2D/3D/4D interpretational techniques
  • a variety of principles including various pitfalls of seismic interpretation, integration of seismic data and other datasets (especially well data), and attribute and AVO/AVA analyses.
