Seismic Interpretation in Complex Fold and Thrust Belts

It can be very difficult to find courses that cover specific structural regimes, and which give you the interpretive tools you need to be able to develop a coherent model.  For example, if you’re working in a complex fold and thrust belt, the knowledge you have of seismic interpretation of structures may be inadequate. 

John Shaw is offering a short course that provides an in-depth look seismic interpretation in fold and thrust belts, and it will take place August 15-18 at Harvard.  seismic reflection data and the development of balanced cross sections for trap delineation and reservoir characterization in fold-and-thrust belts.  The course will enable participants to

  • Recognize common types of structures in fold-and-thrust belts based on their expressions in seismic reflection data.
  • Rigorously apply fault-related folding concepts to interpret these structures in seismic reflection data, characterizing fault and fold geometries and fault displacements.Evaluate structural interpretations based on fault and fold relationships.
  • Identify petroleum traps and their major structural risk elements.
