Important Announcement: Change in Workshop Date

About

13–14 September 2020
Bahrain

Due to the ongoing global health concerns and change in date announced for GEO Bahrain to 14–17 September 2020, the ‘Advances in Quantitative Seismic Reservoir Characterization’ workshop is rescheduled to 13–14 September 2020. 

We appreciate your continued support and understanding. Please do not hesitate to email Hyra Dalisay for any further questions.

Seismic data has been extensively used in the quantitative description of the reservoirs in the last few decades. This practice relied on the ability of the elastic data to identify and to quantify the reservoir in three dimensions. The advances in seismic data acquisition, processing and inversion has facilitated this advancement. The last workshop addressed the challenge of integrating seismic data into static reservoir models using key seismic reservoir characterization inputs such as petrophysics, rock physics and seismic inversion. 

This workshop will focus on the effective integration of geological, geophysical and engineering data in building robust dynamic earth models. As the industry trend is moving towards big data analytics and machine learning, the workshop will explore the utilization of these algorithms to aid in the effective integration of the various complementary data types required for an optimal quantitative description of the reservoirs.

Workshop Schedule

Sunday, 13 September
Registration, morning and afternoon sessions, Icebreaker

Monday, 14 September
Morning and afternoon sessions

Who should attend?

Geophysicists, geologists, petrophysicists and petroleum engineers specializing in seismic imaging, interpretation, sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, reservoir modeling and seismic reservoir characterization from industry and academia.

Workshop format

The format of the workshop will feature presentations by invited key experts who will share their experiences. The workshop will serve as a unique opportunity to have open and extended discussions among the participants.

9 sessions (2 days). The oral presentations are comprised of 20-minute talks followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. After each session, a 30-minute discussion session is planned. The objective of this session is to allow participants to discuss in detail and learn from each other what has worked for them and debate the issues and challenges facing them during their daily workflows. Session chairs will also serve as discussion leaders during the 30 minutes.

Technical Program

This workshop will focus on the effective integration of geological, geophysical and engineering data in building robust dynamic earth models. As the industry trend is moving towards big data analytics and machine learning, the workshop will explore the utilization of these algorithms to aid in the effective integration of the various complementary data types required for an optimal quantitative description of the reservoirs.

Technical Topics:

  • Seismic Imaging: FWI, Multi-Component, Velocity Model Building
  • Converted Wave Data
  • Seismic Attributes
  • Rock Physics Modeling and Seismic Facies
  • Role of Machine Learning
  • Seismic Inversion
  • 4D Seismic
  • Fracture Characterization and Geomechanics
  • Integrating Static with Dynamic Models
