IntroductionSeismic imaging is the inverse of the seismic process. It is the most important and crucial step in recovering the geology from the seismic response. In order to be successful in the inversion process, a fair knowledge of how the response was generated is required. The course will deals with the wave propagation theory underlying the seismic reflection method (acoustic waves in fluids, elastodynamic waves in solids, Kirchhoff and Rayleigh integrals, reflection, diffraction, etc.), the inverse problem in seismic imaging methods (wave field decomposition, inverse wave field extrapolation, imaging principle, etc.) as well as velocity related to imaging procedure also will be discussed in brief.
ObjectivesUpon completion of this course, participants will be able:
- To understand the theoretical and practical aspects of seismic wave propagation and imaging algorithm.
- To discuss the diffraction theory, Huygens Principles and migration workflow.
- To explore different issues and challenges in seismic data processing and imaging.
TrainersProf. Dr. Deva Prasad Ghosh, obtained BSc. in Geology and Physics, MSc. in Geophysics both from Banaras Hindu University India and Ph.D. (1970) from Delft University, the Netherlands. He worked at Banaras Hindu University as Associate Professor in Geophysics for about 8 years. He worked in Shell from 1974-1999 holding various technological and management positions. Prof Deva joined PETRONAS in 2000 and was responsible for research, development, and application of geophysical technology worldwide. In 2011, he joined Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) as a Professor in Geophysics and currently responsible as Head of Center of Excellence in Subsurface Seismic Imaging & Hydrocarbon Prediction (CSI). He is passionate about geophysics, developing local staff, and transfer of technology. His field of interest is in Seismic Imaging, Seismic Attributes and Hydrocarbon prediction. He is a member of AAPG, SPE, EAGE and SEG, and a former editor of EAGE. He was SEG-Shell Distinguished Lecturer for SE Asia in 2010 and EAGE Lecturer 2012. Dr. Abdul Halim Abdul Latiff, is currently the MSc Programme Manager and a lecturer with Department of Geosciences, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia. He obtained Master of Science in Petroleum Geoscience from UTP in 2014 and was awarded Master of Engineering in Electrical & Electronic from Imperial College London in 2008. Prior to join UTP, he had a short stint with CGG as a geophysicist in between April 2009 to March 2012. His research interests are in earthquake seismology, earth’s deep structure, seismic acquisition design and optimization algorithms as well as new solutions for hydrocarbon prediction in the complex geological region through seismic data processing, imaging and interpretation. He is currently member of Board of Geologists, Board of Engineers, SEG, EAGE and GSM.
