The SEG Advanced Modeling Program (SEAM) is a partnership between industry and SEG designed to advance geophysical science and technology through the construction of subsurface models and generation of synthetic data sets.

Bill based our conversation on a slide highlighting the different phases of SEAM (see “The Power of Geophysical Modeling,” slide 4). Currently SEAM is seeking partners for its latest project, Life of Field. SEAM Life of Field data will be generated for complex geology, complete reservoir description, and seismic. Additional information about becoming a SEAM partner is available at www.seg.org/seam.

Register for the SEAM Workshop, in partnership with the Geophysical Society of Houston, on 15-16 September 2016 in Houston, TX.
