Seabed Seismic, Hybrid Surveys and their Opportunities and Challenges

1–3 November 2022 | Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


1–3 November 2022
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Workshop Details

The workshop aims to cover all aspects of ocean bottom seismic and applications that highlight geological challenges, such as shallow gas and carbonates, and their solutions.  The presentations will include case studies, shallow and deep water seismic, and the combination of ocean bottom with other methods such as streamer seismic. These topics will be covered from the perspective of survey design, acquisition, processing, imaging and reservoir characterization.  In addition, the workshop will look to the future with updates from research and how seabed seismic fits in with the emerging markets such as carbon capture and storage.

Who should attend

The target participants include (but not limited to):

  • Geoscientists
  • Acquisition specialists
  • Exploration managers
  • Researchers who have an interest in new advancements on marine seismic acquisition and its applications

Workshop Format

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

6 sessions (3 days). We will aim for one keynote speaker per day with closing session at the end of the workshop to serve as outlook going forward. The Oral presentations are made up of 15 min talk followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. After each session 30 minutes discussion session will be planned. The objective of this session is allow participants to discuss in details and learn from each what has worked for them and debate on issues and challenges facing them during their daily workflows. Session chairs will also serve as discussion leaders during the 30 minutes.

Poster Presentations are also welcome to give ample time to the delegates to discuss the poster topic with the author(s). Posters will be in displayed in the workshop room.
