- Short History and Theory of Seismic Attributes
- Seismic Attributes in Petrel
- Colors and Visualization of Attributes
- Surface Attributes in Petrel
- Noise Reduction
- Fault Interpretation (Edge Detection)
- Fault Interpretation (Edge Enhancement)
During the first part of the day the students learn the basic theory and concepts of seismic attributes. Different visualization techniques are covered using Petrel including color and opacity management and co-rendering of different seismic attributes (RGB display mode).
During the second part of the day the students learn using seismic attributes for noise reduction and the workflow for fault interpretation based on a combination of seismic attributes. The resultant cube highlights faults against the seismic background dramatically and is ready to be used for accurate manual or automated interpretation.
- Stratigraphic Interpretation
- Channel Interpretation
- Textural attributes
- Fracture indicators
On day two the students learn to use seismic attributes to highlight stratigraphic terminations and sequence boundaries and apply them on a data set to perform the seismic stratigraphic interpretation.
After this the students learn to apply seismic attributes and techniques to highlight channels and sedimentary features in clastic sedimentary environments and their interpretation using probes and geobodies.
Then the students learn how to use textural seismic attributes to separate sedimentary features based on their texture.
Finally the students review some of the attributes commonly used for fracture detection.
- Direct Hydrocarbon Indicators (DHI)
- Seismic calculator
- Group project
During this day the students review the seismic attributes and techniques used for Carbonate seismic interpretation with emphasis on karst features. It follows a review of the seismic attributes and techniques to highlight salt features and their interpretation.
Then the students review some seismic attributes commonly used as direct hydrocarbon indicators. They will use the seismic calculator to highlight features in their seismic data, merge seismic volumes and create new seismic attributes.
The day concludes with a group project where the students use the concepts they learned during the course to perform an interpretation challenge based on a seismic data set.
Seismic interpreters that need to use the full potential of their seismic datasets to resolve the seismic interpretation challenges.
Petrel Fundamentals training course is required.
Knowledge of Petrel basic and seismic interpretation functionality, and of seismic interpretation workflows.
