2018 SEG Borehole Geophysics Workshop

28-30 October 2018 | Guilin, China


28-30 October 2018
Guilin, China

Borehole geophysical measurements provide the essential data for connecting between the earth’s surface within the borehole and in the laboratory. In conjunction with the concepts and principles from rock physics, geology, geophysics, and other disciplines, borehole geophysical techniques are used to optimize reservoir imaging and determine physical properties of reservoir rocks and fluids. Borehole geophysics is gaining momentum in the industry as an indispensable component in oil and gas exploration, development, and production. 

Today, the industry faces challenges from unconventional reservoirs such as shale gas/oil, tight sands, and fractured carbonates. Borehole geophysical technologies and solutions are advancing along with these challenges. This workshop will provide a forum for demonstrating and discussing these advancements, emphasizing the application and integration of logging, borehole, crosswell, and surface seismic data.

The workshop is organized by SEG China in partnership with BGP Inc., CNPC, Guangxi Geophysical Society, Guilin Geophysical Society, and Guilin University of Technology. The meeting will focus on four key areas: (1) accurate and more effective borehole geophysical solutions and models; (2) high-resolution seismic imaging around and away from borehole microseismic monitoring; (3) new methods, technology, and application on unconventional oil and gas logging; (4) and improved seismic well data integration.
