SEG publishes 2018 Distinguished Instructor Short Course book
Complements Kurt Marfurt's 2018 SEG DISC
Tulsa, OK, 15 February 2018 – The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) has recently published the 2018 SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) book by Kurt Marfurt, titled Seismic Attributes as the Framework for Data Integration Throughout the Oilfield Life Cycle.
This book is written to accompany and complement the 2018 SEG DISC that provides a rapid overview of how 3D seismic attributes provide a framework for data integration over the life of the oil and gas field. Key concepts are illustrated by example, showing modern workflows based on interactive interpretation and display as well as those aided by machine learning.
Useful attributes capture and quantify key components of the seismic amplitude and texture for subsequent integration with well log, microseismic, and production data through either interactive visualization or machine learning. Although both approaches can accelerate and facilitate the interpretation process, they can by no means replace the interpreter. Interpreter “grayware” includes the incorporation and validation of depositional, diagenetic, and tectonic deformation models, the integration of rock physics systematics, and the recognition of unanticipated opportunities and hazards.
Seismic Attributes as the Framework for Data Integration Throughout the Oilfield Life Cycle can be purchased at the SEG Shop. SEG members pay US$137, nonmembers US$249. Also available as an e-book. SEG members save 45%. Attendees of the 2018 DISC will receive the book with registration. View course locations and dates
