E-223 - Seismic Interpretation & Attributes Analysis Workshop: Qualitative & Quantitative Methods

  • Junior geoscientists.
  • This course aims to grasp the basics of seismic interpretation, both qualitative and quantitative methods. To be able to understand and follow every step of seismic interpretation projects.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • work effectively in a seismic interpretation study project,
  • understand how to perform a feasibility study and to select the most appropriate workflow,
  • gather and prepare data for seismic interpretation studies.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Interactive presentations, practical exercises, document analysis.
  • Workshop on case study using dedicated software.

Qualitative interpretation 1.5 days
  • Geological frame for interpretation: tectonic environment and sedimentary basins.
  • Petroleum geophysics:
  • Wave propagation.
  • Acquisition.
  • Processing.
  • Seismic interpretation workflows:
  • Structural interpretation.
  • Stratigraphic interpretation.
  • Well-to-seismic tying.
  • Exercises: examples in various environments and basins.
Quantitative interpretation 1.5 days
  • Fundamentals of rock physics.
  • Post-stack attributes, acoustic impedance and seismic inversion.
  • Pre-stack and AVO.
  • Well data and seismic data preconditioning for seismic characterization.
  • Quantitative reservoir property prediction: lithologies and fluids.
Workshop - North Sea case study 2 days
