Join Schlumberger experts in business, geophysics, and technology for a series of focused 30-minute webinars for geoscientists, technical leaders, and managers. Topics range from oil economics to seismic data acquisition and processing through fully integrated subsurface evaluation.
Inadequate subsurface illumination resulting from complex geology or the limitations of the acquisition geometry has detrimental effects on the amplitude and phase of the migrated image and in turn on both the structural and quantitative interpretation. Join this webinar to learn how least-squares migration implemented in the image domain and depth domain inversion efficiently mitigate illumination effects, as demonstrated with synthetic and field data examples.
Laurence Pascaline Letki joined WesternGeco in 2009 as a seismic engineer at the Gatwick UK data processing center. As a senior area geophysicist for the past 3 years, she is the product champion responsible for the testing, commercialization, and support of technologies including uncertainty analysis, rock physics, and depth domain inversion.
Session 1: 8:00 GMT | Session 2: 16:00 GMT
Over the past 10 years, exploration spend soared to record levels while discovered volumes have been on a steady decline. Technology plays a vital role in identifying good opportunities, delimiting exploration risk, and reducing time to first oil. Join this webinar to learn how early understanding of subsurface challenges can lead to time and cost savings throughout the project life cycle.
Mohamed El-Toukhy, Manager, Western Hemisphere Multiclient Exploration Services, has more than 30 years of experience as a geoscientist and project manager of exploration, appraisal, and development projects in the Gulf of Mexico, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, North Sea, West Africa, Atlantic margins, and the Middle East. Before joining Schlumberger in 2014, he worked at Shell.
Join this webinar to learn about the world’s first marine impulsive source designed to reduce the environmental footprint of seismic acquisition. The eSource bandwidth-controlled seismic source technology combines WesternGeco’s expertise in acoustics with Teledyne Bolt’s experience in manufacturing, creating a sustainable and flexible source solution.
Mehul Supawala is the Marine Energy Sources Product Champion at WesternGeco based in London. He has a degree in mechanical engineering and more than 13 years of experience with the company. Early in his career, he worked on seismic vessels and marine operations support before taking the role of product champion in 2014.
Join this webinar to learn more about the key techniques and technologies that have contributed to marine towed streamer seismic acquisition in the past and present. Also learn about new innovations that will enable high-quality, cost-efficient acquisition with quicker turnaround and reduced operational and environmental exposure.
Tim Brice, WesternGeco Technical Sales Manager, is a geophysicist based in London. He has more than 25 years of industry experience working in various capacities across Australia, Europe, North America, Middle East, and Far East. He holds a bachelor’s degree in geology from the University of Leeds and a master’s degree in geophysics from the University of London.
Integrating seismic and nonseismic methods requires the extraction of information from multiple measurements and a multidisciplinary team to interpret the data. Join this webinar to learn how workflows leveraging the powerful Petrel E&P software platform and Omega geophysical data processing platform facilitate integrating complementary electromagnetic and potential field data with seismic data to lessen risk and increase confidence.
Andrea Lovatini, Manager, Center of Excellence for Integrated Electromagnetics, holds a master’s degree in electronics and telecommunication engineering from Politecnico di Milano. Before his current role, he worked as a marine electromagnetics geophysicist for WesternGeco managing the onboard data processing, modeling, and interpretation teams.
Insights from over a decade of densely sampled onshore data and wavefield propagation have led to more reliable seismic images and new answer products that achieve marine seismic quality. The case studies will include high-productivity vibroseis, coherent noise attenuation, and handling azimuthal anisotropy.
Peter van Baaren, UniQ System Sales Geophysics Manager, is an expert in 3D seismic survey design with more than 25 years industry experience working in various aspects of the seismic field—from survey design to acquisition to processing.
Hydrocarbon exploration is high risk, high reward. Watch this recorded webinar to learn how innovation and technology are leading to advanced, integrated seismic solutions for economically recoverable hydrocarbons.
Malcolm Francis, PhD, Schlumberger Advisor and Exploration Services Manager, has held various technical and management positions during his career, including eastern hemisphere multiclient chief geophysicist, global manager of geology and interpretation, and senior manager of E&P solutions.
Accurate subsurface imaging relies on the right combination of velocity model, migration algorithm, and input data. Significant seismic progress in providing illumination and reliable data in the most complex geological settings demands using full-waveform inversion and earth model building techniques to account for the geologic complexity.
Denes Vigh, Manager, Full-Waveform Inversion Center of Excellence, Houston, TX, holds a master’s of science degree in geophysics from the Technical University of Miskolc in Hungary.
