2018 SEG Seismic Imaging Workshop

12–14 November 2018 | Beijing, China


12–14 November 2018
Beijing, China

The oil industry has gradually recovered since oil prices declined in 2014. Oil and gas exploration and exploitation have entered a new development phase, which requires more accurate seismic imaging and the ability of imaging deep reservoirs. The current imaging tasks include: 1) Steep-dip overthrust structural imaging in foothill regions; 2) Salt-dome and sub-salt imaging; 3) Buried-hill reservoir imaging; 4) Complex volcanic-rock-body imaging; 5) Carbonates and reef-structural imaging; 6) Micro-faults and fracture imaging; 7) Weak-reflectivity unconventional reservoir imaging.

The focus of the workshop will be case studies, illustrating advanced seismic imaging technologies for complex and deep reservoirs from various oilfields. We will discuss the impact of seismic imaging on geologic interpretation and reservoir characterization, from seismic acquisition to data preprocessing and from velocity model building to migration and imaging. The direction of future developments will also be investigated.

Seismic imaging experts and technical leadership teams from many different domestic oilfields in China and worldwide will be attending this special workshop in Beijing. Their open-minded discussions and suggestions, in addition to many field data examples, will stimulate your imagination for the next generation of seismic imaging.

We look forward to your participation and contribution.

The following topics will be discussed at the workshop:

  1. Case Studies
    • Steep-dip overthrust structural imaging in foothill regions
    • Salt-dome and sub-salt imaging
    • Buried-hill reservoir imaging
    • Complex volcanic-rock-body imaging
    • Carbonates and reef-structural imaging
    • Micro-faults and fracture imaging
    • Weak-reflectivity unconventional reservoir imaging
  2. Impact of seismic acquisition to seismic imaging
    • New acquisition methods
      (Simultaneous sousing; compressive sensing; long offset; single receiver; low-frequency source)
    • Modeling for acquisition
      (Acoustic; elastic; viscoelastic; wide-azimuth vs. narrow-azimuth; aperture et al.)
  3. Importance of pre-processing and data conditioning
    • De-noising (AI De-noising); de-multiples; de-ghost
    • Static corrections
    • Surface-consistent methods
  4. Amplitude preserved methods
    • Broad band
    • High resolution
    • Velocity model building methods
    • Near-surface velocity model estimate
    • Sub-surface velocity model estimate
    • Joint near-surface & sub-surface velocity model estimate
    • Anisotropy (TTI; Azimuthal)
    • Tomography and FWI field data examples
    • Integrated (non-seismic) model building methods
  5. Imaging technologies
    • Prestack time migration
    • Prestack depth migration
    • Amplitude-preserved migration
    • Q-migration
    • Anisotropic migration (VTI, TTI and orthorhombic)
    • Fast and efficient methods
