OGE-E 502 - 3D Seismic Acquisition

Please contact us for fees


Course Description

3D seismic surveys have become a standard ingredient for successful exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons. Usually, the acquisition of these surveys is the most expensive step towards a clear picture of the subsurface targets. Therefore, an optimal choice of the survey parameters is essential. This course covers the choice of optimal survey parameters based on sound geophysical principles.
