Practical Seismic Attributes with Petrel

In this course the students learn the theory and practical workflows needed for effectively using post stack seismic attributes in seismic interpretation.

The course content covers the most common seismic attributes, discusses the theory, attribute management and visualization. It delivers concepts and workflows for the interpretation of stratigraphy, structure, direct hydrocarbon indicators and discusses clastic, carbonate and reservoir features. 

The students learn these concepts and workflows while guided by well-structured exercises done in Petrel and based on a variety of seismic datasets.

This course will outline the practical aspects of generating and understanding Seismic Attribute responses and relating these from the mathematical geophysical generation to practical geological understanding and application.

Focus will be placed on outlining the use of seismic attributes in specific geological environments and identification of specific geological features.

The Learning Objectives for the course are

  • Teach the theory of seismic attributes
  • Teach the practice of seismic attributes using example sessions with Petrel software
  • Prepare you to use seismic attributes in your work

    Day 1

    • 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.

    Day 2

    • 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.             

    Day 3

    • Carbonates
    • Salt
    • 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.

    How to get from the Airport to Oslo city

    When you get to Oslo Airport Gardemoen the easiest and fastest way to get to town is by taking the “Flytoget” (the airport express train). It takes only 21 minutes to get to Oslo Central Station. The ticket is 160 NOK, and can be bought with creditcards on special new credit card machines before you board the train. (Note: when going back to the airport you have to slide your card through the machine before and after the journey). Once at the Central Station it would be easiest to then take a taxi to the hotel.

    Please find the links to the train and bus schedules below:

    How to get to the Schlumberger offices in Asklakveien 14E

    The Underground station is a blue sign with a big T in a circle (“T-bane”). Buy a ticket before you get on the train (See Fares below). Take line number 5 towards Østerås and get off at Røa. The stop before Røa is called Hovseter.

    If you wish you can take a taxi from the hotel to Schlumberger’s offices. If you're traveling in a group, this may be cheaper and easier than catching the train. The trip will take approximately 15-20 minutes, depending a bit on traffic of course.

    10 minutes walk: When you get to Røa station you go to the other side (as though you are taking the train back) and start walking over the parking place and on to a small gravel road. Then continue straight through the housing area and past the parking place. You then take a left and continue straight on to the road makes a natural right turn. You will see Schlumberger’s offices on your left hand side.

    Fares (03/2009)

    Single ticket - NOK 25 (good for 1 hour, NOK 36 if bought from bus/tram driver)
    Flexikort (8-Trips) - NOK 180
    Dagskort (24-Hour Pass) - NOK 65
    7 dagers kort (7-Day Pass) - NOK 200
    Monthly Pass NOK 550 (transferable)

    All tickets are valid on buses, tram (trikken), metro (T-bane), boats and local trains within Oslo. Tickets have to be validated before starting the first trip.

    Note: In case you register from any of the following companies:
    Addax Petroleum, Amerada Hess, BG Group, ConocoPhillips, Gaz de France Suez, RWE Dea, Shell, Statoil or Talisman Energy a Purchase Order is required.
    Please provide the PO number in the appropriate field in the registration form and send a copy of the PO to paulsen2@slb.com
