N040 - Interpretation of 3D Seismic Data

Course Overview
This course is designed to give a broad-based knowledge and understanding of the key seismic interpretation techniques relevant to subsurface analysis. The nature of the seismic response will be considered, with reference to both structural evaluation and to methods for stratigraphic analysis. The analysis of fluid types within the pore spaces will also be considered, along with attribute analysis and display techniques.

Participants will learn to:
•	Evaluate more effectively their seismic datasets and what interpretation is possible.
•	Perform the principal seismic interpretational techniques for structural, stratigraphic and reservoir scale evaluation.
•	Assess the importance of key seismic data characteristics, such as resolution, phase, wavelet shape, dynamic 
        range and processing artefacts.
•	Manage the main facets of structural interpretation, such as correlation, tracking, slicing, composite and volume 
•	Appraise the forms of stratigraphic interpretation within a 3D seismic dataset and demonstrate the leading 
        techniques for the extraction of stratigraphic information, such as horizon slices.
•	Judge the main limitations of seismic display, specifically colour, phase, polarity and resolution and how they 
        may be overcome and harnessed to elucidate further detail in a dataset.
•	Assess the multiplicity of hydrocarbon reflection characteristics, enabling more hydrocarbon reserves to be found 
        through seismic interpretation.
•	Perform those techniques and understand the limitations that allow the seismic method to be pushed to the 
        reservoir scale.
•	Evaluate the range of seismic attributes and establish how to select the correct one for the problem at hand.
•	Manage the use of 3D seismic data in the reservoir evaluation process and examine how to determine such
        reservoir properties as net-to-gross ratio, net pay, porosity and pore volume.
