Course Description

Advanced Seismic Interpretation - A 5 day course for E&P Professionals in the Oil & Gas Industry

Advanced Seismic Interpretation CourseCourse Level: Advanced
Course Length: 5 days
Discipline:  Geophysics

This five day Advanced Seismic Interpretation Course is designed for E&P professionals and aims to provide essential knowledge on visualization, integration, and interpretation techniques that have been recently developed for seismic data.

The course uses learning objectives that are aimed at knowledge and application levels, enabling participants to gain a solid understanding of the applications and role of the seismic interpreter in studies that involve post-stack seismic attributes, AVO, seismic sequence stratigraphy, seismic geomorphology, 4D time-lapse seismic, and multidisciplinary integration.

Using recent and relevant case histories, data examples, and exercises, conducted both on paper and with the PETRELtm software, the course guides participants through an understanding of the integration of all available data into the seismic model that adds value in the needed coherent and successful seismic predictions that result from an interpretation.
