Course Information

The overall objective is to introduce to seismic interpreters and geophysicists the key concepts, principles and practicalities that form the technical basis for value added seismic applications in exploration, field appraisal and reservoir management. Learning objectives are a practical understanding of present day processing methods and their implementation. Emphasis is on practical understanding of seismic acquisition, processing, imaging and technical requirements for extraction of geological and petrophysical information. Data examples, exercises and workshops are used to illustrate key concepts, practical issues and pitfalls as they affect seismic data quality and interpretation. The modular course design allows ready adaptation to shorter or longer versions and direct linkage to advanced treatment of specific topics.

Classify types of seismic methods used in E&P
