|Introduction to Seismic Stratigraphy: A Basin Scale Regional Exploration Workshop - ISS|
|3D Seismic Attributes for Reservoir Characterization - SARC|
|Applied Seismic Anisotropy for Fractured Reservoir Characterization - ASAF|
|Advanced Seismic Stratigraphy: A Sequence-Wavelet Analysis Exploration-Exploitation Workshop - ADS|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): John Pigott, John Sumner
|Seismic stratigraphy is a powerful tool for exploration and exploitation, especially when the rock-fluid information within the seismic wavelet (reflection character analysis) is integrated with the lithofacies-stratigraphic information, which is determined from reflection group geometry (sequence analysis). The methods used in this workshop do not rely upon either cosmetic processing or interpretation as an art; instead, practical methods of seismic stratigraphy are employed as a science, based upon firm, tested principles that are applied to a spectrum of tectonic structural styles and depositional environments. This rigorous, five-day course is a problem-oriented, hands-on workshop including significant group discussion and presentation. Participants learn how to make seismic modeling-interpretation judgments as a basis for seismic-facies and reflection character analysis. Case studies for exploration and development incorporate 2D and 3D seismic data with well data selected from around the world. Each participant should bring a hand-held calculator to class.|
Geophysicists, geologists, and explorationists who have completed the PetroSkills course, Introduction to Seismic Stratigraphy: An Exploration Workshop: A Basin Scale Regional Workshop, or have comparable training and desire a challenging workshop, which will improve exploration and development skills.
You Will Learn:
DR. JOHN D. PIGOTT is an internationally recognized energy expert with more than 25 years' experience in worldwide hydrocarbon exploration-exploitation. He has been an Advisor to Foreign Energy Ministries, an Exploration Consultation for Oil Companies Worldwide, and a University Professor. He has worked in many different areas including concession design, corporate management evaluation and reorganization, regulator advisement and technical advisement. He integrated geological and geophysical data into predictive, comprehensive basin models for hydrocarbon exploration on 5 continents. He designed and implemented geologically targeted 2D-3D seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation for field development in South East Asia, North Sea, Central America, and the Gulf Coast. He received a BS in Geology, a BA in Zoology (cum laude) and an MA in Geology from The University of Texas and a PhD in Geology from Northwestern University.
DR. JOHN SUMNER started Sumner Geophysics in 2003 after retiring from ExxonMobil. While at Exxon, he developed techniques in seismic interpretation, seismic modeling, and the direct identification of hydrocarbons. He taught at the University of California in Santa Cruz and at Lehigh University prior to joining the Exxon Production Research Company in 1977. He received a PhD in geophysics from Stanford University in 1971.
