SEG/EAGE Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) 2010

We proudly present the Distinguished Instructor for 2010. Dr Colin Sayers (Schlumberger) who will present his one day course Geophysics Under Stress: Geomechanical Applications of Seismic and Borehole Acoustic Waves.

The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the sensitivity of elastic waves in the earth to the in-situ stress, pore pressure, and anisotropy of the rock fabric resulting from the depositional and stress history of the rock, and to introduce some of the applications of this sensitivity. The course will provide the basis for applying geophysics and rock physics solutions to geomechanical challenges in exploration, drilling and production. A variety of applications and real data examples will be presented, and particular emphasis will be placed on the rock physics basis underlying the use of geophysical data for solving geomechanical problems.

The SEG/EAGE DISC 2010 course book is also available from the EAGE Bookshop.

Who Should Attend

The course is suitable for individuals from all subsurface disciplines including geophysics, geomechanics, rock physics, petrophysics, geology, geomodeling, and drilling, reservoir and petroleum engineering. The course does not require a theoretical background and can be attended by a broad section of working geoscientists and engineers.
