Who should attend?

Audience

    • Geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers with basic knowledge in geophysics.

Level

  • Foundation
  • This course provides a comprehensive, practical understanding of how seismic data is used to characterize, model and rank reservoirs.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand the relationship between physical properties of rocks and geophysics,
  • master the main steps of seismic reservoir characterization workflow, to perform QC and to assess data to be interpreted and related uncertainties,
  • interpret major results of petro-elastic analysis and modeling, AVO-AVA and inversion studies and to understand methodological issues in seismic inversion, attributes classification and reservoir properties prediction.
