Course description

Course description
Seismic stratigraphy is a powerful tool for exploration and exploitation, especially when the rock-fluid information within the seismic wavelet (reflection character analysis) is integrated with the lithofacies-stratigraphic information, which is determined from reflection group geometry (sequence analysis). The methods used in this workshop do not rely upon either cosmetic processing or interpretation as an art; instead, practical methods of seismic stratigraphy are employed as a science, based upon firm, tested principles that are applied to a spectrum of tectonic structural styles and depositional environments. This rigorous, five-day course is a problem-oriented, hands-on workshop including significant group discussion and presentation. Participants learn how to make seismic modeling-interpretation judgments as a basis for seismic-facies and reflection character analysis. Case studies for exploration and development incorporate 2D and 3D seismic data with well data selected from around the world. Each participant should bring a hand-held calculator to class.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Geophysicists, geologists, and explorationists who have completed the PetroSkills course, Introduction to Seismic Stratigraphy: An Exploration Workshop: A Basin Scale Regional Workshop, or have comparable training and desire a challenging workshop, which will improve exploration and development skills.
