Application of Structural Geology in Seismic Interpretation

Seismic interpretation requires understanding of structural development and its interrelation with the stratigraphic system. Bias and misunderstanding have unfortunately resulted in countless dry holes. So go beyond tracing horizons and understand their context within the structural system by extracting key information from seismic surveys and other datasets.

Exploration for Tight Gas System

This 5 day course is designed to train the explorationist to efficiently identify and map pervasive, large opportunities in Tight Gas Systems. They occur in both clastics and carbonates, and examples of each will be provided. In as much as these resource plays will be a main focus of future gas exploration, it is critical to understand the occurrence and characteristics of these huge unconventional accumulations. They will also become increasingly important in worldwide exploration as a larg...
