October 13th - Baxter's Interurban Grill (in-person gathering) and online zoom.
Title: How to Utilize Seismic for High Impact
Talk Synopsis: In this talk we focus on how to best leverage seismic data for reservoir characterization. We first outline the common pitfalls people encounter and look at some QC's and remedies that will improve the reliability of any seismic interpretation. We then talk about how to best utilize the seismic, considering the data available and timeframe restrictions. Finally, we demonstrate the workflows using several short case studies showing the impact of seismic analysis in real world situations
Bio: Ben Hardy has over 18 years of experience in the oil and gas industry focusing on exploration. He’s worked on seismic acquisition vessels, oil rigs, processing shops, and interpretation but found his niche in the oil and gas industry in quantitative interpretation (QI). He has spent the last 14 years working for Ikon Science in a QI role. The fast paced and varied nature of consultancy work, together with his change in location from Perth to Houston, means he has had the opportunity to work on datasets from every continent on Earth (with the exception of Antarctica), with the focus of the past few years on onshore US plays (Eagle Ford, Permian, Bakken and Marcellus Basins).

On 4 June, 1921, J. Clarence Karcher and his colleagues performed the first seismic reflection experiment in Belle Isle, Oklahoma City, which successfully demonstrated the ability to image subsurface structures from seismic waves. In July and August of 1921, additional experiments were conducted at Vines Branch in the Arbuckle Mountains to correlate subsurface reflections with surface geology. In the past century seismic reflection has been widely used in the energy industry to explore and exploit the world’s petroleum reservoirs and more recently, geothermal and other resources as well. Furthermore, imaging the Earth through seismic has led to major contributions and revolutions in understanding the Earth’s history and structure, aided tectonic reconstructions, and serves societal needs related to geohazards and engineering. Processing and analysis of seismic data have also been and continue to be important drivers in the advancement of technology and computing.
This workshop will feature an historic documentary on the early events and pioneers, showcase recent developments and advances in seismic acquisition, processing and interpretation, and moreover suggest innovative pathways into the future of seismic. Because of the wide applications of the seismic method, the event will invite participations from industry, academia, and government agencies. The three-day event based at the Oklahoma State University (OSU) campus in Stillwater, OK will include technical presentations at the University of Oklahoma (Day 1) and OSU (Day 2) as well as a field trip to historic sites (Day 3).

More info to follow! We will likely be organizing transportation from Tulsa to attend the event, especially the Day 3 Field Trip excursion.
