We paired this city of culture and commerce with the Lone Star State’s booming economy and dynamic geophysical environment to bring you the most comprehensive educational and technical program to date.
Again this year, registrants to the SEG Annual Meeting will be eligible to take advantage of the SEGratis Membership.
With more than 1,400 abstracts received for review, the 2019 Technical Program features over 1,070 quality presentations in 155 diverse sessions, including eight Special Sessions and one Special Global Session.

"I attend the Annual Meeting mainly to see friends, meet new people, catch up on technical advancements, promote my business, and it’s just fun … I enjoy it."
"I attend the Annual Meeting each year because of the professional networking and the excellent technical program where I’m able to keep informed about the new technologies in the oil and gas industry."

"You have to attend the Annual Meeting. I learn something new every year, such as what the advancements are in our field and what other people are doing. It’s also an opportunity to share our experiences with others."
"I started going to the Annual Meeting because of the women’s events. The most important benefit to me of my SEG membership is networking and making good friends with people from all around the world."
"I’ve attended the SEG Annual Meeting for many years, because for me it’s kind of a vacation. I get to confront my own ignorance … I always get to find out something I don’t understand. I’ve made wonderful friends at the Annual Meeting. My wife joins me, and over the years she’s developed a fine collection of friends and she also looks forward to attending every year."
Hi, I'm Glenn Winters, the 2019 SEG General Chairman for the SEG Convention in San Antonio, Texas, September 15th through the 20th.
I spent a majority of my career acquiring, processing, and interpreting data from the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford. While there are many topics that we are currently working on for SEG19, a significant focus will be on the Permian, the Eagle Ford, and Latin America. SEG19 will be multidisciplinary and integrated, featuring the latest hottest advances in data acquisition, the importance of artificial intelligence, and big data, such as the very hot technology of sparse 3D land seismic data acquisition.
Today on the outskirts of Midland, Texas in a planned community that has office buildings, single family homes, multi-family homes, schools, and oil wells, they're all co-existing in a safe and healthy environment. Since 2015, close to 19,000 wells have been drilled in the Permian Basin, and also the Eagle Ford, where almost 7,000 horizontal wells have been drilled in this time frame.
Operators, using tools such as 3D seismic, microseismic monitoring, inversion, and fluid flow monitoring, create a better understanding of the reservoir that results in finding the best combination of stacked lateral targets and spacing to determine the best economic development of a reservoir.
We're outside of Midland at a test site for the seismic field crew where they do testing before we go out into the field. There are over 12,000 square miles of 3D seismic that has been shot in the Permian Basin since 2015. Of that, 8,300 square miles were done in Texas. Today's channel count for our seismic crews has gone from 3,000 back in 2010 to over 15,000 to 17,000 today. This allows us to acquire 3D seismic much more rapidly. A 50-square mile survey that was shot back in 2010 would take us 50 days. Today, we can do it in less than 17, and that's because of lighter wireless equipment and less vibrator time.
Not only are we planning to have a wonderful technical session, we also have lots of great tourist attractions in San Antonio, including things like the River Walk, the Alamo, Six Flags, and Sea World, and we're looking forward to having a hot time in San Antonio.
