Quantitative Seismic Interpretation

Audience

This course is for personnel who are familiar with seismic interpretation and who wish to extend their knowledge on how they can further utilize seismic data sets to constrain and characterise reservoir units, fluid properties and refine structural interpretation for development phase evaluations. This course is suitable for geologists, geophysicists, explorationists and petroleum engineers.
