|Seismic Interpretation - SI1|
|Basic Geophysics - BGP|
|Introduction to Data Management - IDM|
|Seismic Positioning Data Management - SPDM|
Duration: 2 days
Instructor(s): Martin Rayson
|While both seismic navigation and trace data topics are covered, there is a greater focus on the geo-spatial component of trace data, with respect to navigation and positioning. The course will offer insight into geodetic considerations to ensure removal of geo-spatial data ambiguity using case studies of data acquisition, processing, data loading, and proposed well location selection. Preservation of metadata and compliance to international standards in data exchange provide the integrity backbone to enhancing data quality and removing any ambiguity with respect to geo-referencing and legal ownership. Ensuring interpreters interpret and are not deviated from their activities by having to resolve mis-ties within the data is key to enhancing efficiency at a critical stage of the project cycle.|
This course is aimed at a wide audience and will be of particular benefit to technicians, data loaders, and data analysts. Those involved with seismic data processing can preserve data quality and obtain geo-spatially accurate imaging of subsurface features by applying techniques covered in the course. Asset team members responsible for maintaining seismic data and data loading to interpretation workstations can enhance their processes by applying techniques covered.

DR. MARTIN RAYSON is Principal Geodesist for Petronas Carigali in Kuala Lumpur. He has been in this position since 2012 and is responsible for all thing Geodetic within the company. He humorously states that he strives to eventually eliminate all exploration folks from using the terms Timbalai or Kertau ever again. Prior to working for Petronas Carigali, Martin was Geodetic Focal Point for Shell Upstream Americas in Houston. Previous positions included employment by Enron Oil and Gas International in Houston which included time in the field working with OBC and land seismic crews; Halliburton Geophysical Services research and development team where he worked on the development of new integrated navigation systems; Geophysical Services International where he worked as a field geophysicist in both marine and land survey geophysical operations; and Schlumberger offshore United Kingdom. Mr. Rayson has a PhD in Survey Sciences and a MSc in Geophysics and Planetary Physics, both from Newcastle University.
