Course Description:
Seismic can be conducted on land or offshore. Recording may be two dimensional (linear) or three dimensional (polygonal). 4D (time variant) seismic surveys may be conducted in specific areas many times over a period of years to study and understand how a reservoir is being depleted through production.

Each phase of the exploration life cycle is intensively data driven. Permanent records detailing the processes and technology applied, observations and results are retained. Suitable cataloguing practices must be employed to ensure that this data asset is managed for the future.

This course covers the PPDM 3.9 Data Model Seismic subject area for all stages of the life cycle for seismic sets, locations, acquisition, processing, interpretation, and transactions.

This course describes the Samples and Sample Analysis subject areas of the PPDM 3.9 Data Model.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Review seismic sets and general seismic principles
  • Discuss traditional relationships, the PPDM Seismic Data Model, records management, and the seismic life cycle
  • Explore seismic licenses and approvals including status tables, restrictions and conditions, and violations and resolutions
  • Review and discuss seismic acquisition, processing, interpretation and transactions
