Advances in Geophysical Solutions for Complex Geological Settings


3–4 July 2024
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Workshop Overview

Complex geological settings for oil and gas exploration, and development and production on land, marine, or transition zone environments may vary in terms of their tectonic regime and lithologies that define the play type. These complex geological settings can be associated with carbonate build up, salt tectonic, igneous intrusion (volcanic sill/dyke), complex structural conditions such as thrust fault, highly faulted clastic settings, fractured basement, shallow gas layer, or a combination of the above.

Complex geological settings affect the way seismic waves propagate due to their interaction with the lithology and sub-surface physical properties, and how they are recorded at the surface or in simple terms, ‘illuminate’ the sub-surface, eventually affecting the signal processing and imaging.

Challenges in terms of complex waves propagation (multi-pathing and multi-arrival), absorption and illumination are inevitable, hence geophysical solutions are required to tackle the challenges in terms of seismic and non-seismic data acquisition, processing, imaging, and inversion.
