Seismic Imaging of Subsurface Geology - SSD - A PetroSkills course
This course is designed for those working with reflection seismic data to understand and appreciate the underlying principles and processes leading to final images and associated attributes. Basic seismic imaging principles and techniques are introduced at the outset of the class to establish the purpose, underlying principles, parameterization, and limitations of the various processing steps leading to final seismic images provided by current state-of-the-art imaging techniques. The course focuses on 3D seismic data. By the end of the course, the participant will understand and appreciate the many steps leading to final interpretable images and will be able to recognize possible problems introduced or not mitigated by the processing flow. Moreover, the participant will understand how seismic acquisition and data processing steps affect seismic amplitudes to assess their validity as input to various post-imaging seismic attribute and inversion processes. The lectures are complemented by many case-history examples, hands-on exercises and real-time data processing examples. Although mathematics is kept to a minimum, some understanding of 1D and 2D filtering is helpful. Course participants are encouraged to bring their own data examples for individual and group discussions. The material covered in this course provides essential basics to intermediate and specialized geophysics courses such as AVO Inversion and Attributes, Seismic Attributes for Reservoir Characterization and Applied Seismic Anisotropy for Fractured Reservoir Characterization. Those who have had limited prior exposure to seismic data should consider taking Basic Geophysics for an introduction prior to taking this course.
