2020 SEG Broadband & Wide-azimuth Deepwater Seismic Technology Workshop

13-15 July 2020 | Beijing, China

Important Announcement: Change in Workshop Date.


13-15 July 2020
Beijing, China

Due to the ongoing global health concerns of the COVID-19 virus, the ‘2020 SEG Broadband & Wide-azimuth Deepwater Seismic Technology Workshop’ is rescheduled to 13-15 July 2020. We appreciate your continued support and understanding. Updates will be provided as available. Please do not hesitate to email [email protected] for any further questions.

Offshore is an area with significant potential in the oil and gas industry. To date, approximately 40% of oil and gas reserves in the world exist in deepwater. Due to the “high risk, high investment, and high technology required” associated with deepwater exploration and development, it is therefore important to investigate and obtain subsurface reservoir information with as much accuracy and precision as possible. Geophysical data is fundamental, and plays a key role in deepwater oil and gas exploration. Exploration in deepwater, meanwhile, requires more advanced geophysical technologies.
