3D Seismic Attributes
for Reservoir Characterization

Why Choose this Training Course?

This 3D Seismic Attributes for Reservoir Characterization training course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the role of seismic attributes in reservoir characterization. Seismic attributes are critical tools that bridge the gap between seismic data and subsurface geological features, aiding in the interpretation and characterization of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Participants will gain practical knowledge of various seismic attribute analysis techniques and their applications, equipping them with the skills necessary to integrate seismic attribute-derived information into reservoir models.

What are the Goals?

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the significance of seismic attributes in reservoir characterization.
  • Identify different types of seismic attributes and their specific applications.
  • Apply fundamental and advanced seismic attribute analysis techniques.
  • Interpret and correlate seismic attributes with subsurface geological features.
  • Estimate reservoir properties such as porosity, lithology, and fluid content using seismic attributes.
  • Integrate seismic attribute information into reservoir models for improved characterization.
  • Collaborate effectively with geoscientists and reservoir engineers to optimize reservoir understanding.

Who is this Training Course for?

This training course is tailored for professionals and experts in the oil and gas industry who are involved in reservoir characterization, exploration, and development. This includes:

  • Geoscientists (geologists and geophysicists) seeking to enhance their understanding of seismic data interpretation and integration.
  • Reservoir engineers aiming to incorporate advanced seismic attribute techniques into reservoir modeling workflows.
  • Exploration and production professionals interested in improving reservoir characterization for optimal decision-making.
  • Researchers and academics exploring the latest trends in seismic attribute analysis and its impact on reservoir studies.
