Advances in Quantitative Interpretation

15–17 May 2023Muscat, Oman Quantitative seismic interpretation (QI) plays a key role in geoscience within exploration, appraisal, and field development phases. Although QI workflows are of a common practice, many challenges remain to be tackled, as successful application of these techniques highly depend on the quality of input data and integration between different disciplines from seismic acquisition to dynamic modelling. This workshop aims to discuss state-of-the art QI workflows, case studies, and recent advances. Special

Water Distribution and Partitioning in Carbonate Rocks – A Critical Zone Geophysical Perspective

The carbonate critical zone studies use transdisciplinary approaches to solve some of the most pressing challenges society faces (e.g., security, scarcity, and uncertainty of water, and carbon sequestration). My research uses geophysical tools, coupling with hydrogeological and biogeochemical information, via observations and modeling, to understand the pore structure, water flow, and fluid-rock interactions in the critical zone. In this talk, I will describe how I use geophysical tools, mainly geoelectric and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)

The Role of Geophysics in Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS): Examples from the Plains CO2 Reduction Partnership

This talk will focus on the role of geophysics in CCUS projects specifically how geophysics can be used to support site operations and regulatory requirements. Examples from the EERC-lead Plains CO2 Reduction Partnership funded as part of the DOE Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships (RCSP) Program will be used to demonstrate the effectiveness and limitations of various geophysical methods.

Members in Transition Session 1: What is SEG MiT?

MiT is the newest way SEG supports the membership, stepping up to the many challenges of the post-COVID era, in which many of our members are looking for resources to uplift, polish or acquire new skills. Who are members “in transition”? The fresh graduates searching for a first job; or mid-career and experienced professionals searching for a job or launching their own entrepreneurship; or retirees facing a new phase in their careers.

Plain Trains, and Automobiles: Applying Geophysics to the Monitoring of Transport Networks Using DAS

DAS is now a standard technology for oil and gas settings, however, fiber optic cables are everywhere so there are numerous other applications for DAS analysis. One such example is the monitoring of activity in transport networks using vibrations detected by DAS surveys. In this talk, I discuss some of the experiences and issues I have encountered in applying geophysical analysis to the monitoring of transport networks using DAS. With examples from both road and

Distributed Acoustic Sensing Applications in Engineering and Geoscience

First applications of DAS in geophysics were conducted a little more than 10 years ago. Initial uses of the technology focused on seismic imaging using VSP as the fundamental acquisition geometry. Shortly after the deployment of this geophysical use of the technology it was shown that the broad bandwidth that DAS records could be used for many other engineering applications. Nowadays fiber optic DAS has been deployed to analyze stimulation and production in different settings
