Learn Seismic Data Acquisition

For Oil and Gas Exploration

This course will start with an Introduction to the basic principals of the Reflection  Seismic Method, starting from the wave form, wavefront, wave characteristics, and its objectives. The course covers the key theories to ensure optimum data quality, and these will be discussed along with practical examples in order to improve the participants’ skills when it comes to selecting the acquisition parameters. This will be followed by an overview of the best practices and the most recent seismic 2D and 3D data acquisition technologies used onshore and offshore. The participants will then learn the most important terms of seismic data techniques, Delegates will learn how to select the acquisition parameters, how to compute field statics in their own operations and in different environments using the latest techniques, in Onshore, Offshore and transition zone, including Ocean Bottom Cable (OBC) data Acquisition.

What you’ll learn

  • Understand different 2D & 3D onshore and offshore acquisition techniques that will enhance the participants’ knowledge.
  • Improve participants’ capabilities in quality control in order to ensure better supervision and optimization of the acquisition parameters..
