Seismic Reservoir Characterization


Location: Houston, Tx


Dates: May 13-16, 2019


About the course

This course is specifically for high resolution definitions using information contained within seismic volumes.  Concepts and applications of attribute modelling and inversion modelling that define features such as lithological variations, micro-structure, fluid, secondary porosity and permeability and distribution will be presented.



Geologists, geophysicists, stratigraphers and sedimentologists who are looking to develop skills in petroleum systems interpretation and distribution mapping and who are familiar with seismic interpretation.


The course will teach you how to:

To develop a business proposal for any Reservoir Characterization project

To apply the concept of correlation length to understand reservoir continuity

To define hydraulic flow units in a reservoir

To assess the economics of oil and gas projects across their entire life cycle

To carry out the integrated Reservoir Characterization process
