|Introduction to Seismic Stratigraphy: A Basin Scale Regional Exploration Workshop - ISS|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): John Pigott, John Sumner
|One of the most revolutionary, most effective, yet most under-utilized tools introduced into exploration this century is that of seismic stratigraphy. It is not a tool exclusive to geophysicists, nor is it a tool only for geologists. Seismic stratigraphic techniques are based upon an integration of firm, well-established geological and geophysical fundamentals. When properly applied, seismic stratigraphy provides a powerful foundation for geohistory analysis, helping describe a basin's evolution and the resulting effects upon its spatial and temporal variation in hydrocarbon potential. Seismic stratigraphy chronostratigraphically constrains both the sedimentological and fault-mechanical stratigraphy of a basin. Furthermore, it can provide a predictive model extrapolated beyond the borehole as to aspects of the quality of potential reservoirs and seals, their sedimentary environments of deposition, and in some cases, even their paragenesis. In this rigorous workshop, participants pragmatically apply the seismic stratigraphic method to optimizing their exploration efforts by working in teams on projects selected from diverse settings around the world. Areas for the projects include borehole-constrained seismic data drawn from such regions as the Alaska North Slope, Gulf of Mexico, Red Sea, Southeast Asia, South America, and Western Africa.|
Geophysicists, geologists, explorationists, and managers who are interested in an introduction or review of the theory and application of contemporary seismic stratigraphic techniques to exploration.
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.
