Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

This Petroknowledge 2D and 3D Seismic Interpretation online training course will focus on reflection seismic, one of the fundamental ways of imaging the subsurface from a geological perspective. 2D and 3D seismic data is a major source of information in the oil industry for both onshore and offshore activities.

Recently this type of data has also been used in geothermal energy activities, carbon sequestration in geological reservoirs and wind energy, especially offshore. Other uses include mapping salt structures for use as natural gas reservoirs (gas caverns), delimiting mineral deposits among other activities involving imaging of the subsurface.

This online training course will cover the main concepts underlying the interpretation of 2D and 3D seismic data, from its History, the methods of data acquisition, processing, visualization and software. Several mapping exercises will be done using seismic data - faults and horizons - and how they can be used to understand the structure, stratigraphy and geodynamics of a basin. The perspective of hydrocarbon resources will be addressed through reserve and associated risk calculation exercises.
