|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.
You Will Learn:
DR. MARTIN RAYSON graduated in Applied Sciences in 1984 before embarking on a MSc in Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of Newcastle. After completing his MSc in 1985, he worked as a Geophysicist in the UK. With a down turn in the exploration business, Martin headed back to the University of Newcastle in 1986 to read a PhD in Surveying Sciences and received his first exposure to Geomatics. His thesis was entitled 'Network Design Criteria for Monitoring Plate Tectonic Activity,' which was completed in 1989. After graduation, Martin continued his career in the hydrocarbon exploration sector. This commenced with Halliburton Geophysical Services where he worked as Area Geophysicist with responsibility for all aspects of navigation and positioning of both Land and Marine Seismic Surveys. Later, Martin moved into software research and development, where he contributed to the design and testing of applications related to marine seismic surveying. This work lead to implementing the software on many seismic survey operations globally from the Americas to Far East Asia. After completing many tours of duty, he joined Shell as their geodetic focal point. This involved working in an integrated exploration department ensuring the positional and data integrity of all seismic and drilling operations. In 2012 Martin moved from Shell to Petronas to fulfill a similar role within their Geophysical Operations team. He managed to remain with Petronas until Q1 2017 before joining Geomatic Solutions as their CEO.
