This three day course presented by William Ashcroft is aimed at geologists, petroleum engineers and anyone who has to interface with geophysicists in exploration and production with <5 years experiences.
Lecture sessions are minimised and hands-on tutorials are maximised throughout the course.
No previous exposure to seismic data is assumed.
Topics to include:
Day 1- Fundamentals
Seismic wave description, data acquisition, CMP processing, seismic velocities, post-stack migration
Computer-based tutorials on amplitude and phase, NMO correction, CMP stacking and velocity analysis
Day 2- Interpretation for structure, 2D and 3D
Tutorials on synthetic seismograms, picking reflections, time to depth conversion, structure maps
Day 3 - Refining reservoir structure and properties from 3D seismic data
Optimising the seismic wavelet, optimising the subsurface image through pre-stack time and
pre-stack depth migration, seismic attributes to refine reservoir architecture, seismic attributes including AVO to refine reservoir properties
