Basic Seismic Interpretation NEW!
Don Herron & Bob Wegner

This course provides entry-level training in seismic interpretation and serves as a foundation for intermediate and advanced geophysics/seismic courses.

Learn more

Business Fundamentals for Petroleum Geophysics (1 day) NEW!
Bill Abriel

This course is intended for anyone working in the petroleum industry who is interested in learning the tools and procedures of how the financial and information value of seismic data is used in production, decision analysis, reserves estimates, exploration, and risk analysis.

Learn more

Concepts and Applications in 3D Seismic Imaging
Biondo Biondi

The primary objective of this course is to provide a broad and intuitive understanding of seismic imaging concepts and methods that enables geoscientists to make the appropriate decisions during acquisition, processing, imaging, and interpretation projects.

Learn more

Full Waveform Inversion
Mrinal Sen

This course is designed for technical personnel of the oil and gas industry who are engaged or expected to be involved in seismic imaging, accurate velocity analysis and interpretation. Seismic Inversion plays an important role in building reservoir models by integration of different data types.

Learn more

Integrating Seismic, CSEM and Well Log Data for Reservoir Characterization
Lucy MacGregor

This course will concentrate on three contrasting methods: surface seismic, marine controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) and well-log data.

Learn more

Introduction to 2D / 3D Seismic Data Acquisition and Processing for Non-Geophysicists
K. John Fernando

This course discusses the seismic principles necessary for understanding the concepts of seismic data acquisition and processing.

Learn more

Introduction to AI and Machine Learning NEW!
Phil Bording 

Machine Learning and AI are being applied to geophysics interpretation and processing problems and the SEG workforce needs education on how these methods work, and when to use them.

Learn more

Microseismic Monitoring in Oil or Gas Reservoirs
Leo Eisner

The goal of this class is to explain principles of microseismic monitoring ranging from single monitoring borehole to surface and near surface networks.

Learn more

Petrophysics and Geophysics Relevant to CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery
Bill Harbert

In this SEG two-day course the basic physics relevant to CO2 are presented, including the descriptions of gas, liquid and super critical phases (scCO2).

Learn more

Practical Seismic Surface Wave Methods: Basics to Cutting Edge NEW!
Julian Ivanov

This short course builds an understanding of and skill set with the method sufficient that participants can confidently incorporate the MASW method in their work.

Learn more

Rock physics, geomechanics, and hazard of fluid-induced seismicity
Serge Shapiro

Understanding and monitoring of fluid-induced seismicity is necessary for hydraulic characterization of reservoirs, for assessments of reservoir stimulation results and for controlling the seismic risk. This course provides systematic quantitative rock-physical and geomechanical fundamentals of these aspects.

Learn more

Structural Geology in Seismic Interpretation
Shankar Mitra

The course is designed for geophysicists working on seismic interpretation of complex structures, who need to understand the seismic expression of structures in petroleum basins, and correctly apply structural models and techniques to seismic interpretation.

Learn more

The Interpreter's Guide to Applied Depth Imaging
Scott MacKay

The course focuses on intuitive quality controls and quantitative spreadsheet tools to plan and ensure stable depth solutions during the iterative imaging process.
