You may not be aware that there was a super-Greenhouse environment during the Cretaceous, and that there were super-storms associated with it, and that analyzing the sediments deposited during that time can provide insight into the potential warming of climates, and also the cross-shelf transport of sediments. That is just one of many fascinating new areas of research that looks at data through new lenses, and with new analytical techniques. Welcome to an interview with Lesli J. Wood, Weimer Distinguished Chair and Professor in Sedimentary and Petroleum Geology, Colorado School of Mines.

Using supervised neural networks for mapping reservoir properties can improve resolution as demonstrated by the PNN Zp inversion, or using such networks for classifying variable lithologies can improve clarity as established by the seismic object detection result.

The Carbonate Depositional Systems course is an excellent introductory course that assumes no pre-existing knowledge. It is designed for earth scientists and engineers involved in exploration or production from carbonate rocks. It moves from basic principles to advanced ideas and case studies that will also help experienced geoscientists with practical aspects of carbonate depositional systems.

Coherence is an iconic attribute available on most interpretation workstations and it helps with the characterization of small and large-scale faults, large structures, fault truncations, buried channels, reef edges and unconformities. There are various algorithms available for coherence computation, each having its advantages and limitations in terms of the quality of coherence imaging of the features of interest and run times associated with them.

Interpolation of seismic data is an important application in exploration seismic signal processing. The need for interpolation on incomplete data may be due to acquisition limitations, economic constraints or regularizing of merged data with a variety of shooting parameters from different vintages.

High resolution fault visualization from seismic is an area that shows new promise, especially in finding compartments and new productive zones. High resolution fault volumes can be used to find small faults that have been intersected by wells and led to drilling problems (fluid losses, borehole stability issues, casing damage), as well as production problems. Fault volumes can be used to identify and e.g. shut off faults that are delivering water, or that allow cross-flow between zones and wells. The volumes can be also used to stay clear of faults, or target sweet spots or compartments in future wells.

This work demonstrates a modern workflow that directly extracts high-resolution, large-scale fracture networks from seismic inversion-based structural attributes. The workflow is successfully applied to a thrust-belt controlled, lower Triassic, siltstone reservoir in the Montney Formation of the Farrell Creek area in northeast British Columbia to extract a 3-D fracture network orthogonal to the primary stress direction.

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.

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.
