Fundamentals of Geophysics (G028)

  • TypeType: Classroom, Virtual
  • TypeDiscipline: Geophysics
  • TypeDuration: 1 Day

Tutor(s)

John Randolph: Consultant Geophysicist

Overview

This class provides an overview of seismic technologies commonly used in exploration and production with a focus on conventional reservoirs. Participants will review case histories and discover how seismic imaging might add value to their projects.

Duration and Logistics

Classroom version: 1 day; a mix of lectures (85%) and a hands-on exercise (15%). The manual will be provided in digital format and participants will be required to bring a laptop or tablet computer to follow the lectures and exercise.

Virtual version: Two 4-hour interactive online sessions presented over 2 days (mornings in North America and afternoons in Europe). A digital manual and exercise materials will be distributed to participants before the course.

Level and Audience

Fundamental. Intended for engineers, supervisors and managers who desire a understanding of how various seismic technologies might be leveraged along with geological and engineering data to solve exploration and production problems.

Objectives

You will learn to:

  1. Understand how commonly used geophysical tools can add value to E&P projects.
  2. Discuss how seismic data responds to changes in rock properties.
  3. Explain the principle steps involved in seismic imaging and interpretation.
  4. Communicate effectively with team members regarding geophysical project objectives.

Course Content

  1. Why invest in seismic data?
  2. Reservoir response to seismic waves; what we should expect to see.
  3. Seismic acquisition & processing; how is it done, and at what cost?
  4. Seismic amplitude changes; what are they telling us about reservoirs?
  5. Seismic interpretation; what is involved?
  6. Examples of exploration, production, geothermal, and CO2 storage projects.
