Third EAGE conference on Seismic Inversion


About the Conference 

The third EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion promises to unite top geoscientists, academia and like-minded professionals, covering topics in Subsurface Imaging, Seismic Inversion and Reservoir Characterisation.

Seismic Inversion is a key process used extensively in exploration, production and geohazard studies to characterise the subsurface. Inversion provides a way to visualise and analyse data at higher resolution than standard seismic, facilitating the estimations of reservoir properties, and acting as a link between rock physics and seismically interpreted structure models, ultimately improving the interpretation efficiency.

In 2024, our conference will also put an emphasis on the use of Rock Physics and Machine Learning methods in subsurface characterisation. We will also delve into the emerging applications of seismic inversion in green energy projects, encompassing initiatives such as CCUS, geothermal and shallow subsurface characterisation for wind farms, thus advancing innovative energy solutions.

The conference will include 3 full days of technical sessions, highlighting various technologies, methodologies and case studies. It will enable networking opportunities with top specialists in the geoscience community, bringing together experiences in conventional and unconventional resources, carbonates and clastic regions, fostering grounds for an exchange of knowledge.

Aim of the Conference 

The intent of the conference is to discuss and demonstrate current progress, recent breakthroughs and future trends in technologies, methods and applications to that of Seismic Reservoir and Subsurface Characterisation, Seismic Inversion, Machine Learning and Rock Physics. It will provide a knowledge exchange arena focused on the values and limitations of seismic inversion.

We expect to address typical challenges in seismic inversion including Rock Physics, data conditioning and fitness, layer properties prediction, azimuthal anisotropy, thin layer property estimation, detuning, hydrocarbon saturation, Direct Hydrocarbon Interpretation (DHI) and risk analysis, modification of prospects, and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) drainage strategies.

The conference coverage sets a high bar for the discussion of existing methods, latest developments, case studies, lessons learned, as well as the intricacies and expectations for the future.
