HampsonRussell Strata Workshop

Course Benefit

  • Covers both pre-stack and post-stack inversion, with a largely non-mathematical overview of current seismic inversion methods
  • Demystifies many of the different methods that are used today to invert seismic data
  • Presentation of several applications of the seismic inversion method to various datasets from around the world
  • Combination of theory and practical exercises using the Strata software. Exercises comprise approximately 50 percent of the course content
  • At the conclusion of the course, participants will be better able to evaluate inversion methods and to undertake inversion projects

HampsonRussell AVO Workshop

Course Benefit

  • Explains the Rock Physics framework for the study of the AVO method
  • Provides a comprehensive look at the theory and application of the AVO method, a method of increasing interest to explorationists
  • Introduces AVO Inversion methods: Simultaneous Inversion, LMR and EI
  • Emphasizes practical AVO examples from a number of regions around the world
  • Explains both the advantages and potential pitfalls of the AVO method
  • Consists of both lectures and hands-on exercises, using the AVO software ̶ the exercises comprise approximately 65% of the course
  • At the end of the course, participants will be able to identify potential AVO applications in their own exploration areas and undertake AVO projects

HampsonRussell LithoSI Workshop

Course Benefit

  • Discussion of the LithoSI workflow for facies and fluid classification using multiple elastic parameters from the inversion of the seismic data
  • Basic introduction to Bayesian classification, multivariate Probability Density Functions (PDFs) and their optimization through Kernel Density Estimation
  • Teaches how to design complex multi-variate probability distribution functions to ensure proper classification of lithologies and accurate definition of litho-probabilities
  • Shows how to understand the quantification of uncertainty in seismic lithology and fluid prediction
  • Practical Exercises: Defining litho-classes, selecting attributes, optimizing PDFs, validating the results and volume application

HampsonRussell RockSI Workshop

Course Benefit

  • Explains both the theory and practice of rock physics using the RockSI (and LithoSI) modules.
  • Shows how RockSI is fully integrated into the HampsonRussell Geoview interface.
  • Teaches the user how to apply RockSI (and LithoSI) using a real North Sea oil sand example.


Geoscientists who wish to perform well log conditioning, seismic petrophysics interpretation and rock physics modeling study in order to provide superior elastic and reservoir property log data for seismic reservoir characterization, interpretation and analysis.
