The 3D Seismic Symposium has been able to survive and flourish over the past 26 years because of the

generous support of our Sponsors. Please consider a donation to keep the Symposium alive and growing!

26th Annual 3D Seismic Symposium: Vision 2020: Revealing the Reservoir

This year’s theme, Vision 2020: Revealing the Reservoir, highlights a mix of case studies from across the United States and technology workflows.

Kevin Raterman, Engineering Fellow at ConocoPhillips, will kick off the day by presenting the stimulated rock volume (SRV) and resultant drained rock volume (DRV) pilot project undertaken intheEagleFord. Utilizingadatasetincludingmicroseismic,distributedtemperatureandpressure data, the observed reservoir state preceding and following hydraulic fracturing will be presented, emphasizing geophysical, reservoir engineering, and completions related observations.

Brian Owens, Senior Vice President (SVP) of the Rockies at Occidental, will offer the keynote discussing Oxy’s roadmap for success, detailing where they have been and where they are going.

Close to home in the Rockies, the DJ Basin will be in the spotlight during Sheila Harryandi’s presentation on sweet spot identification through pre-stack seismic inversion and multi attribute transform. From the Green River Basin, Elizabeth LaBarre, Ultra Petroleum, will present a structural evolution of the Pinedale Anticline.

Multiple levels of detail in the Permian Basin continue to be revealed as operators and service companies continue to delineate and high grade opportunities. WesternGeco’s Vasudhaven Sudhakar will present how proactively avoiding water production hazards and excess water improves development economics.

QEP Resources, presented by Jill Thompson, will discuss how they are improving their prediction of Midland Basin well performance by leveraging seismic and reservoir properties with machine learning.

From the Delaware Basin, Randal Utrech, from Schlumberger, will discuss optimizing stacked play development by incorporating seismic elastic and discontinuity properties into an integrated earth model to improve assessment of fracture geometries and production interference.

On the technology side, talks will add perspectives from acquisition to seismic inversion. Anastasia Poole, Schlumberger, will discuss the benefits of high density seismic to gain insight on unconventional reservoirs. Fairfield Geotechnologies’ Bruce Karr and Ron Blanco, Fasken Oil and Ranch, will describe the impact of high density seismic on full data integration. Tom Bratton, APEX Petroleum Engineering, will challenge the selection and application of rock physics and geomechanical models as he discusses the implications of such in seismic interpretation.

iReservoir’s Reinaldo Michelena will highlight seismically constrained permeability modeling of reactived natural fracturing to help estimate the impact of hydraulic fracturing. Ke Wang will discuss Chevron’s use and application of deep neural networks for seismic inversion.

Brian Fuller with Sterling Seismic will present details on time-lapse reservoir properties imaging using surface sources and a permanent horizontal DAS cable.

To jump start the 3D Seismic Symposium, the DGS will host an evening happy hour along with the Rocky Mountain Region Student Challenge Bowl on Monday March 16, 2020 from 5 pm to 7 pm at the Ellie Caulkins. In light of the entertainment from last year, everyone is encouraged to join the fun of competing in the Challenge Bowl.

The 3D Seismic Symposium will be held Tuesday March 17, 2020 from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm at the Ellie Caulkins Auditorium, Denver Center for Performing Arts Complex, in downtown Denver, Colorado. Registration and continental breakfast begin at 7:30 am with the technical program running from 8 am to 4:30 pm. Drinks and awards to follow until 6 pm.

Join us and enjoy networking opportunities along with the technical talks and visiting with exhibitors at the 3D Seismic Symposium.

Registration, exhibiting opportunities and sponsorship are open and available through the DGS website: https://denvergeo.org
