About this Training Course
Seismic interpretation requires understanding of structural development and its interrelation with the stratigraphic system. Bias and misunderstanding have unfortunately resulted in countless dry holes. So go beyond tracing horizons and understand their context within the structural system by extracting key information from seismic surveys and other datasets.
You will learn a variety of modern structural concepts and techniques and their role in the interpretation of seismic data. Using an applied “hands-on” approach, participants will be exposed to a diversity of worldwide case examples with complementary exercises, both of an individual and group nature.
Course is designed from an applied standpoint, with numerous examples and hands-on exercises from the petroleum industry.
By the end of this 5-day course, delegates will be able to:
- Go beyond tracing horizons and marking faults and truly understand the structural and stratigraphic system
- Understand the role of tectonics and deformation in the formation of various types and orientations of geologic structures.
- Understand the interaction of the structural system with the stratigraphic and sedimentologic environment for better prediction of reservoir formation.
- Integrate data from the large seismic scale to subseismic scale, including seismic anisotropy, to understand better the overall petroleum system.
- Be aware of the common pitfalls of interpretation.
This training is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:
- Reservoir Engineers
- Exploration & Production Managers
Your expert course leader received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Geology from the now University of Louisiana-Lafayette in 1989 and 1990, respectively, and his Ph.D. as a National Science Foundation fellow at Baylor University, Waco, Texas, in 1993, graduating with an overall university gpa of 4.0.
From 1994-1996, he studied planetary tectonics as a NASA-funded postdoctoral fellow at Southern Methodist University. In 1996, he returned to UL-Lafayette, where he was awarded in 1997 the Hensarling-Chapman Endowed Professorship in Geology. He began independent consulting activities in 1991, and in 2001 he left academia for full-time consulting for clients ranging from one-man shops to supermajors.
Your expert course leader has been the editor and publisher (both volunteer efforts) for the Lafayette Geological Society since 2002, and the publisher and various editorial positions for the Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies since 2006. He has been an active researcher, receiving several million dollars in grants from federal, state, and industry sources, has presented numerous talks, and has published on a diversity of geoscience topics.
