This course is intended for engineers who need a better understanding of the geology and geological concepts used in exploration and production decisions, including petroleum engineers, drilling and completion engineers and others who may need a basic petroleum geology refresher. It will also be valuable for GeoTechs, Landmen, Bankers, Office staff and others who work with geologists and need a basic knowledge of geology and geologic terminology and processes.

Over the last few years, several articles on multicomponent seismic data have appeared in Geophysical Corner describing various aspects of processing and interpretation of such data. In this article, we address an important question about correlation of synthetic seismograms with converted wave PS seismic data.

This three-day workshop aims at sharing knowledge and ideas on the advancements in subsurface mapping. This includes recent technologies in acquiring seismic and non seismic data, improvements in imaging the subsurface and advances in data interpretation.

Our seismic industry has witnessed many revolutions, starting from refraction to reflection imaging (1919), analog to digital recording (1963), the introduction of the common depth point (CDP) technique (1952) and the transition from 2-D to 3-D P-wave seismic data in the 1980s.

Computers have taken on more and more of the load in seismic interpretation. But advances in computational seismology and the use of seismic attributes won’t remove the geologist from the equation.

Touted as a “revolutionary” fault-imaging attribute, Thinned Fault Likelihood (TFL) is proving to be a relatively new and successful tool for revealing sweet spots and fracture proximity in highly faulted formations, said AAPG member Hesham Refayee, a geoscientist at dGB Earth Sciences.

The main goal for shale resource characterization is usually the identification of sweet spots, which represent the most favorable drilling targets. Such sweet spots can be identified as those pockets in the target formation that exhibit high total organic carbon (TOC) content, as well as high brittleness. As there is no direct way of computing TOC using seismic data, we adopt indirect ways for doing so.

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.
