AVO Training Available
SIP is pleased to offer an AVO course taught by our Head of Rock Physics and Inversion, Dr. Anthony Fogg.
This can be provided in-house, at SIP's offices or in a location of your choice. Hundreds of people have now attended the course over the last five years.
For further details please contact our Guildford office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
AVO (Amplitude Versus Offset) analysis is a method many geoscientists may be aware of, but they perhaps do not know how the techniques are implemented and the best way to apply the technology. This course introduces the basics of the AVO theory and how it is used to create attributes from seismic reflection data that reveal the underlying rock and fluid characteristics of the sub-surface. The course is not mathematical, but does introduce some simple equations that help the student understand how AVO is used to create quantitative measurements from surface seismic data. Over the last decade there has been a convergence of AVO and seismic inversion technologies and this course reviews the current state of the joint application of these methods.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Understand the commercial application of the AVO, rock physics and seismic inversion methods; what the results tell you and the possible limitations and errors in those results. Participants will be in a better position to critically analyse the results of such studies presented to them by contractors or partner companies. Participants will also be shown techniques to enable them to undertake some simple reconnaissance AVO procedures.
