About

10-12 November 2019
Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago

The workshop is designed to attract a diverse audience of geophysicists, integrated geoscientists and decision makers involved in marine seismic acquisition, processing, and analysis activities. We will further explore the exciting and advancing world of marine seismic operations which has underpinned the deployment of a new generation of vessels, sources, streamers and nodes, and advanced processing techniques in order to meet higher demands for cost-effective, high quality 3D and 4D seismic data from clients. There will be presentations and discussions on the advancement and applications of these new technologies including areas of marked improvement as well as limitations.
