The first-ever AAPG/EAGE GTW in Malaysia has attracted a number of speakers who have contacted organizers with examples of the Profits & Pitfalls of Shallow Seismic Anomalies from a wide variety of areas ranging from Malaysia (Peninsular, Sarawak, Sabah) to Indonesia, Australia, Norway and the Falklands.
This GTW is focused on seismic anomalies within the topmost 1500m (5000ft) of the sedimentary column. The restriction was chosen because the shallow section is usually where we have the best seismic signal-to-noise ratio combined with the most seismically responsive rocks. As such, this depth of investigation offers the geoscientist the best “field laboratory” available to compare predicted versus actual seismic-rock responses.
Speakers also will describe some important shallow discoveries as well as some results that have strong prospectivity implications. The speakers will describe some surprising false-positives that we all need to be aware of.
Attendance at the GTW will allow geoscientists to intelligently extend the examples discussed to their own areas of interest – both wider and deeper:
- Wider… taking the “insights” from a particular part of the shallow portion of a basin and geographically extending the ideas from there.
- Deeper… taking the “insights” from the shallow sedimentary section – and stratigraphically deepening them (with careful modifications).
- Deeper & Wider… of course you can both geographically and stratigraphically extend the examples.
This workshop is expected to be of key interest to all Explorationists in the SE Asian region and beyond.
Join this GTW to share and extend your skills and experiences in a collaborative technical workshop environment.
NB: AAPG GTWs do not publish manuscripts nor do they allow the recording of proceedings. This is to encourage free dissemination of information and more open discussions.
