The course will be taught on a level that will address geoscientists and non-geoscientists. The basics of seismology will be covered as well as acquisition, processing, and interpretation. Exercises will be worked in the course to demonstrate different interpretation techniques and pitfalls. The emphasis will be to make students aware of the strengths and limitations of seismic reflection data in exploring for oil and gas. Applied examples will be shown of several case studies as well as the application of AVO (amplitude variation with offset) and seismic attributes in the lowering of risk.

2 days (lecture/workshop format)
$190.00 (includes all materials and lunches on both days)

MAXIMUM ENROLMENT (Per session): 50

Technical and business professionals (such as geologists, engineers, landmen, administrators, executive assistants, and finance and planning professionals) working in the oil and gas industry who would like the basics of the “science” of oil business.  Land and royalty owners, as well as recent geology and geophysics graduates who would like an overview of the petroleum geophysics would also benefit from the course.

Course Syllabus:
Day One:
1. Exploration Seismology Fundamentals
2. Interpretation Methods & Strategies
3. Structural interpretation of seismic data
4. Sequence Stratigraphy
Day Two:
5. Direct Hydrocarbon Indicators, Amplitude-versus-Offset and seismic attributes
6. Case Studies

Articles selected from the SEG Leading Edge will be referred to in the course and handed out on CDROM. All of the course notes and presentations will also be made available on CDROM.
