Seismic Reservoir Characterization workshop using HampsonRussell

NOVEMBER 18-22, 2024
Dehradun, India

Learning Objectives:

Gain a greater understanding of geophysical theory and the chance to learn advanced techniques in Seismic Reservoir Characterization in this comprehensive 5-day course. Perform all crucial steps of the Seismic Reservoir Characterization workflow, from data conditioning to analyzing inversion results, with hands-on exercises in HampsonRussell and knowledge that is applicable to your day-to-day projects.


  • HampsonRussell Foundations: Explain essential operations that are common to most HRS applications and are being used as an introduction to the software suite.
  • Pre-Conditioning: The course describes importance and benefits of the seismic data conditioning for pre-stack data. After the course attendees will understand the theory behind data condition techniques, what workflow to apply dependent on the data and how to QC results.
  • AVO: A comprehensive look at the theory and application of the AVO method. At the end of the course, participants will be able to identify potential AVO applications in their own exploration areas and undertake AVO projects.
  • Strata: A detailed overview of deterministic seismic inversion methods. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to evaluate inversion methods and undertake inversion projects.
  • LithoSI: Discusses on how to  analyze combinations of inversion results (typical pre-stack inversion results) to describe classes or lithologies. The outputs are litho-probability cubes, transforming inversion results into geological properties. Teaches how to design complex multi-variate probability distribution functions to ensure proper classification of lithologies and accurate definition of litho-probabilities.
  • GeoSI: Overview of  stochastic inversion program from HampsonRussell as well as relevant inversion theory. Teaches the user how to apply GeoSI using a real North Sea oil sand example
