Having first examined the post-stack and prestack methods of seismic impedance inversion (May and June 2015 EXPLORER), we now end the three-part series by turning our attention to joint inversion of multicomponent data.

Integration and creative thinking were recurring themes in the 2015 Discovery Thinking forums held at the AAPG Annual Conference and Exhibition (ACE) in Denver last month.

This is the story of the drilling of a costly ($60 million) Lahee A-1 well in the Colombian foothills, which presented significant deviations from the prognosticated stratigraphy halfway to the objective – and became an operational nuisance. Nonetheless, it is mainly a story of successful management and prompt response to the geological uncertainty.

In last month’s Geophysical Corner `we described the different poststack impedance inversion methods that are available in our seismic industry. In poststack seismic inversion – where there is no mode conversion at normal incidence – it is purely acoustic. P-wave impedance is the only information that can be estimated from poststack inversion of P-wave data.

Seismic inversion for acoustic impedance is widely used in our industry today, mainly due to the ease and accuracy of interpretation of impedance data, but also because it allows an integrated approach to geological interpretation. This month’s column refers to “inversion” as the transformation of seismic amplitude data into acoustic impedance data.

The focus of the AAPG Angola Chapter's quarterly seminar was entitled GeoStreamers - The preferred broadband solution for Imaging and Characterization. Using dual-sensor streamer technology has not only allowed towing the streamer deeper in a quieter recording environment but has significantly increased the amount of reliably measured low frequency information without compromising the high frequencies and the AVO/AVA information.

The Anadarko Basin granite wash play has been considered difficult to interpret both geologically and geophysically. Consequently, the application of seismic attribute analysis to mid-continent washes has not been widely published.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
