An Introduction to Migration and Velocity Model Building

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Ian Jones

1.5 IACET CEU 

The course will commence with an overview of different migration schemes, and cover the motivations for building detailed velocity models, and briefly discuss the inherent limitations on our ability to build a detailed model.

Seismic Migration/Imaging

An Introduction to Perceptive Seismic Interpretation NEW!

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Dr. Steven Lynch

1.5 IACET CEU 

The primary objective of this course is to introduce geoscientists to the emerging field of seismic visualization and to provide both its theoretical foundation and an appreciation of its practical benefits for day to day seismic processing and interpretation projects.

Explorational Rock Physics and Seismic Reservoir Prediction NEW!

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Per Avseth and Tor Arne Johansen

1.5 IACET CEU 

This course covers fundamentals of Rock Physics, ranging from basic laboratory and theoretical results to practical recipes that can be immediately applied in the field.

Quantitative Seismic Interpretation/Applications

Full Waveform Inversion

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Mrinal Sen

1.5 IACET CEU 

This course is designed for technical personnel of the oil and gas industry who are engaged or expected to be involved in seismic imaging, accurate velocity analysis and interpretation. Seismic Inversion plays an important role in building reservoir models by integration of different data types.

Seismic Migration/Imaging

Fundamentals of Rock Physics for Exploration NEW!

Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Aiman M. Bakhorji

.7 IACET CEU 

Every year, finding new hydrocarbon potential is harder, riskier, and more expensive as we move from conventional to unconventional resources. For decades, seismic was used to image subsurface structures and derive elastic rock properties using seismic inversion algorithms. The challenge is how to produce seismic products that are meaningful to exploration and reservoir development to enable swift management decisions and risk reduction. The key to overcoming this complexity and risk has always been the effective integration of diverse petroleum technologies that is accomplished through rock physics.

Seismic Wave Propagation/Rock Physics

Integrated geologic, seismic and reservoir engineering characterization for dual-media simulation in conventional and unconventional fractured reservoirs NEW!

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Reinaldo Michelena, Chris Zahm, and James R. Gilman

1.5 IACET CEU 

This course examines datasets from both conventional and unconventional systems and present workflows to construct naturally-fractured reservoir models. Particular attention will be given to the use and calibration of a variety of 3D seismic attributes which are critical to our characterization efforts. The combination of 3D seismic data with sound stratigraphic and structural frameworks provides a more robust fractured reservoir model. Models and concepts are examined in the context of how they impact fluid flow, reservoir simulation results, field production, and forecast.

Introduction to 2D/3D Seismic Data Acquisition and Processing for Non-Geophysicists

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: John Fernando

1.5 IACET CEU 

This course discusses the seismic principles necessary for understanding the concepts of seismic data acquisition and processing.

Basic Geophysics/Seismic

Machine Learning Techniques for Engineering and Characterization SOLD OUT

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Sid Misra

1.5 IACET CEU

Borehole and Non-Seismic Geophysics, Cross-Discipline Relevant to Geophysics, Seismic Processing Techniques

Planning Land 3-D Seismic Surveys

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Peter Eick and Andrea Crook

1.5 IACET CEU 

This course will teach you to plan and oversee a 3D land seismic survey. It will expose you to the practical aspects of 3D survey design and then teach you the basics of planning and designing a survey. The class will discuss different survey techniques, designs and geophysical limitations, along with field layouts and operational issues. Modern acquisition equipment and recording techniques will be shown along with future directions and current state of the art for the industry.

Surface Seismic Acquisition Techniques

Structural Geology in Seismic Intepretation

Saturday, 14 September–Sunday, 15 September
8:00 AM–5:00 PM

By: Shankar Mitra

1.5 IACET CEU 

The course is designed for geophysicists working on seismic interpretation of complex structures, who need to understand the seismic expression of structures in petroleum basins, and correctly apply structural models and techniques to seismic interpretation.
