Event Details

Oil & Gas Academy 2012 Olympics Petroleum School

The Oil & Gas Academy 2012 Olympics Petroleum School offers delegates a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the United Kingdom when London will become the first city to officially host the modern Olympic Games three times, having previously done so in 1908 and in 1948.

The Oil & Gas Academy Olympics Petroleum School takes place in the bustling city of Manchester, less than 3 hours away from London by train, offering delegates an opportunity to participate in the nationwide celebrations around the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, “the most exciting time in British history”.

Travel connections between London and Manchester offer unrivalled access to a host of Olympic sporting events as the UK welcomes 700,000 Olympic visitors. The Oil & Gas Academy 2012 Olympics Petroleum School programme is conveniently scheduled to provide delegates ample sight-seeing opportunities during this exciting time. We look forward to welcoming you in Manchester.

4D (Time Lapse) Seismic In Reservoir Management

Business Context

4D (Time-lapse) seismic reservoir monitoring which is now becoming a major integral part of reservoir management is the process of acquiring and analyzing multiple seismic surveys, repeated at the same site over calendar time in order to image fluid flow effects in a producing reservoir. Studies have demonstrated that the challenges facing 4D seismic can, and have been overcome, largely through better understanding of 4D seismic fundamentals and utilization of fit-for-purpose seismic acquisition and process.

Who Should Attend

Geophysicists, geologists, petrophysicists, managers, reservoir engineers, government officials, and others who want to know what 4D seismic is and how it helps in reservoir monitoring.  A basic understanding of the principles of geophysics and geology will be assumed. 

What You Will Learn

Course Content

  • Fundamentals of 4D Time lapse seismic; Business drivers and economics of 4D seismic.
  • Generation of synthetic traces that represent the reservoir conditions for a range of production scenarios (feasibility) to determine if 4D will work; Calibration of synthetic traces to seismic to estimate type of expected changes that may occur in seismic.
  • Comparison of seismic data acquired over calendar time; Calibration of 3D seismic volumes to remove spurious differences related to seismic acquisition and processing as well as changes in the near surface; Subtraction of calibrated seismic surveys and mapping of the differences. 
  • Interpretation of calibrated 3D surveys to determine the areas of the field that have changed during production; Comparison of the seismic differences to the synthetic traces to analyze the types of changes that have occurred in the reservoir (pressure, temperature, saturation, etc.).

What You Will Know After Attending

Learning Methods & Tools

The training is a combination of lecture and hands-on exercises. The course includes theory, exercises and examples from both synthetic and real data.

Course Venue

The course takes place at Peter House, the landmark building in the centre of Manchester’s established and vibrant business district, with views overlooking Barbirolli Square and St. Peter’s Square.

The course is delivered in a small, intimate classroom environment ensuring you have one-to-one contact with the course leader.

About the Presenter

Olufemi Johnson Adepoju (B.Sc. (Hons.) Geology and M.Sc, Applied Geophysics) is currently a Geophysical Consultant in Calgary, Canada supporting the deployment of new products and technology in the oil and gas sector including training and on-site mentoring. He has over 25 years experience in the oil and gas industry in seismic interpretation, field development, reservoir studies and prospect evaluation. He brings into asset evaluation and development the latest technologies, including prestack seismic AVO analysis, seismic inversion and seismostratigraphy.  

Femi worked for Shell for 17 years in Nigeria and in Rijswijk, Netherlands as a Team Leader and Senior Geophysicist, participating in various exploration and development projects. He is a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and the Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE).  Prior to his association with Shell, he was Exploration Manager of Nigus Petroleum Ltd. Lagos and also worked as a field seismologist with Seismograph Service Ltd and Geosource Ltd. carrying out 2D and 3D seismic data acquisition and in-field processing.
