15–17 April 2019
The primary aim of this workshop is to showcase state-of-the-art workflows and recent innovations in structural, stratigraphic, geomechanical, and petrophysical interpretation of seismic data. It will highlight the increasing role of seismic interpretation as a platform for integration of all subsurface information throughout all stages of exploration, development, and production – from initial play-based analysis to monitoring the entire lifecycle of a field.
Additionally, the workshop will be an excellent opportunity to review and discuss recent advances in interpretation methodologies, visualization, quantitative tools, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other ways to apply innovative techniques to both the legacy and latest generation of seismic data.
Finally, the workshop will aim to highlight case studies of improved seismic interpretation resulting from advances in data imaging (PSDM, FWI, etc.), data conditioning, qualitative, and quantitative analysis. Forward modeling, seismic sequence stratigraphy, and data integration workflows will also be an essential part of the technical program.

Monday, 15 April
Registration, morning and afternoon sessions, Icebreaker
Tuesday, 16 April
Morning and afternoon sessions
Wednesday, 17 April
Morning and afternoon sessions
Who should attend?
Geophysicists, geologists, and petroleum engineers involved
in interpretation, seismic acquisition and imaging, sequence stratigraphy,
reservoir modeling, and seismic reservoir characterization from the E&P industry and academia.
8 sessions (3 days). Keynote speakers will present. The 20-minute, oral presentations will be followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. After each session, a 45-minute discussion session is planned. The objective of this session is to allow participants to discuss in detail, learn from each other what has worked effectively, and debate the issues and challenges faced during daily workflows. Session chairs will also serve as discussion leaders during the 20 minutes.

The primary aim of this workshop is to showcase
state-of-the-art workflows and recent innovations in structural, stratigraphic
and quantitative interpretation of seismic data as well as the increasing and
crucial role of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. It will highlight
the increasing role of seismic interpretation as a platform for integration of
all subsurface information throughout all stages of exploration, development,
and production – from initial play-based analysis to monitoring the entire
lifecycle of a field.
Technical topics to be covered:
- Recent advances in interpretation methodologies and workflows
- Advances in spectral analysis
- Structural and stratigraphic interpretation
- Recent advances in processing techniques for improved interpretation
- Uncertainty quantification in seismic interpretation
Seismic reservoir characterization and quantitative interpretation
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning: Impact on seismic interpretation, current status and projected development going forward
- Case studies
