Advanced Seismic Stratigraphy

Audience

Exploration geoscientists who have a working knowledge of basic seismic stratigraphy and want to improve their exploration and development skills.

Content

  • Review of seismic stratigraphy objectives
  • Comparison of “Vail” and “Galloway” approaches to sequence stratigraphy
  • Shallow water siliciclastic sequences
  • Deep water siliciclastic sequences
  • Carbonate sequences
  • Integrating high resolution micropaleontology and seismic
  • Time-depth relationships
  • Fault modeling – creating robust fault geometries
  • Application of Waveform Analysis (amplitude, phase and frequency, velocity)
  • Amplitude Variation with Offset (AVO; indication of lithologies, fluids, porosities and pressures)
  • Geovalidation: Synthetics, Seismic Inversion and VSP

Practical Exercises:

  • Determine rock-fluid from waveform analysis
  • Geovalidate selected intervals using synthetic seismograms, seismic inversion and VSP
  • Create sea-level curves from micropalaeontology
  • Integrate micro-palaeontological data and seismic
  • Generate seismic facies maps within a sequence stratigraphic framework
  • Constrain reservoir architecture from seismic: robust fault geometries and representative stratigraphic layering
