GEO670_1

Seismic Analysis and Inversion

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


Seismic data analysis for practical applications within exploration and production of hydrocarbons. Computer exercises, programming and introduction to machine learning.

Learning outcome

Knowledge
  • The students will get a fundamental and broad knowledge on the use of seismic data in exploration and production of hydrocarbons. This includes elasticity theory, rock physics, seismic data, seismic modelling, amplitude versus offset (AVO) analysis, seismic trace inversion, lithology and fluid prediction, fundamental inverse problem theory, and seismic prestack inversion. The students will also get digital knowledge on software applications for seismic analysis and inversion, programming and modern machine learning.

Skills
  • The students will achieve skills to perform seismic data quality evaluation, seismic amplitude analysis and inversion for applications within exploration and production of hydrocarbons, including prediction of lithology and pore fluid from seismic data. The students will also achieve skills to apply computers for seismic analysis and inversion, and skills to program numerical software for geo-applications.

General competence
  • The students will get general competence on elasticity theory, signal analysis, seismic data and analysis, inverse problems and optimization theory, statistical methods and uncertainty, programming and machine learning.
