Mapping Seismic Data Workshop
April 20 @ 8:00 am - April 22 @ 5:00 pm CDT$2775.00
INSTRUCTOR: Alan Cherry
DISCIPLINE: Geology, Geophysics
COURSE LENGTH (DAYS): 5 Days
AVAILABILITY: Public & In-House Only
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is a MUST course for new interpreters of 2-D and 3-D seismic data. How do you accurately interpret seismic data? How do you loop-tie seismic data to validate your interpretation? How do you generate fault and horizon maps from seismic data? These are but a few of the techniques that each participant will learn in this intense workshop. Unlike a lecture class, most of this class is dedicated to hands-on interpretation of seismic data and the construction of various maps from the interpreted data. The objective is to introduce the participants to the fundamentals of hands-on interpretation of seismic data, the seismic tie to well log data, and the generation of various maps based on both seismic and well data. After a brief introduction to the project area and data, the participants will dive into the hands-on interpretation of 2-D seismic lines, and integrate well log fault and formation tops to the seismic interpretation. The project is conducted in a lease block that exists in an extensional tectonic basin with an abundance of normal growth faults, non-growth faults and hanging wall anticlines. The complex geology in the project area will challenge the participants in their interpretation of both the geological and geophysical data. This type of complex geology is encountered in many areas around the world. The participants will get an appreciation of mapping by hand, using their interpretation skills and knowledge, which can be applied to mapping on a workstation. Participants manually interpret 2-D seismic lines. They will generate and integrate fault and horizon maps. They will integrate horizon(s) with faults by hand, position fault polygons, understand and map fault vertical separation, and generate structure maps in faulted areas. These methods are vitally important for the location of exploration or development prospects and wells.
- Gain knowledge of appropriate data for hands-on interpretation.
- Learn the basics to tie well log data to seismic sections.
- Understand the correlation of synthetics with seismic data to establish geologic horizons on seismic data.
- Interpret and mark faults and horizons on seismic lines.
- Generate time and depth structure maps from seismic data.
- Generate fault surface maps and integrate fault maps with horizon data to generate integrated structure maps.
REGISTRATION should be made at least one month before the start of a course. It is recommended that participants register early due to limited seating. However, we will accept paid registrations up to the last business day before the class, provided there are seats available. Registrants will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours of registration and will receive complete venue information two weeks prior to the first day of class.
As a reminder: your seat in a course is not confirmed until payment is received.
