Seismic Data Acquisition: Modern Land and Marine Technologies and Methods

11–15 May

By: R. Malcolm Lansley

3.75 CEUs

This course will provide information related to recent advances in data acquisition technology, equipment and the methodologies that are being utilized to improve data quality and, in many cases, reduce the cost of 3D survey acquisition.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Machine Learning Techniques for Engineering and Characterization

18–22 May

By: Siddharth Misra

3.75 CEUs

This is a hands-on course that allows participants to learn by assembling various programming modules to design intersting implementations of machine learning.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Borehole Geophysics

27–29 May

By: Robert R. Stewart

3 CEUs

This course covers the theory, methods, applications, and practice of various borehole (in situ) geophysical techniques, including: well logging, vertical seismic profiling (VSP), distributed acoustic sensing (DAS), crosswell, and microseismic methods.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Seismic Wave and Ray Theory

2–5 June

By: Gerard T. Schuster

This course will discuss fundamental concepts and foundations of wave and ray theory necessary for seismic processing, imaging, AVO analysis and structural interpretation.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

CSEM and EM Methods In Exploration

8–12 June

By: Neville Barker

This course is designed to equip attendees with a strong understanding of the geophysical fundamentals of the Marine Magnetotelluric (MT) and Controlled-Source Electromagnetic (CSEM) methods, and also with practical experience at using CSEM data for improved exploration predictions.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Seismic Migration

15–19 June

By: Hua-Wei Zhou

The course will focus on principles, practicality, and future directions of seismic migration.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Rock and Fluid Physics

22–26 June

By: Gerald Mathew Mavko

This course reviews various physical properties of rocks and fluids and the seismic response to materials with those properties with direction applications to exploitation, exploration and geophysical modeling.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Seismic Attributes of Carbonate Reservoirs

29 June–3 July

By: Kurt J. Marfurt

In this course, we will gain an intuitive understanding of the kinds of seismic features that can be identified by 3D seismic attributes, the sensitivity of seismic attributes to seismic acquisition and processing, and of how 'independent' seismic attributes can are coupled through geology.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Application and Interpretation of Converted Waves

6–10 July

By: James E. Gaiser

This course provides a thorough overview of the methods of multi-component (3-C and 4-C) seismic exploration from basic petrophysical analysis and survey design through 3-D converted-wave migration.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Velocity Analysis for Depth Imaging

13–17 July

By: Bee Bednar

Outline of Topics: Review of migration theory with an emphasis on what approximations affect our ability to build a representative subsurface velocity model, wave theory versus ray theory, etc.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.


20–24 July

By: Leon Thomsen

This course helps us understand how we can modify our practice to more fully realize the potential inherent in our data through algorithms which recognize the fact of seismic anisotropy.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Seismic Amplitude Interpretation

27–31 July

By: Fred John Hilterman

With the high interest in reducing exploration risk, this course addresses the methodology of an amplitude interpretation and the subsequent benefits and limitations that one can expect in various rock-property settings.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Geophysics Under Stress: Geomechanical Applications of Seismic and Borehole Acoustic Waves

3–5 Aug

By: Colin Sayers

2.25 CEUs

The course will provide the basis for applying geophysics and rock physics solutions to geomechanical challenges in exploration, drilling, and production.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Making Money with Petroleum Geophysics

6–7 Aug

By: William L. Abriel

1.5 CEUs

This course is intended to introduce the participant to the most commonly used business tools that are used in the oil and gas business regarding the use of geophysics including investment profiles, exploration risk evaluation, value of information, reservoir monitoring, and managing partners and contracts.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.

Structural Geology in Seismic Interpretation

10–14 Aug

By: Shankar Mitra

3.75 CEUs

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.

Canceled due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.
