Seismic Interferometry for Exploration and Production
by Deyan Draganov and Kees Wapenaar
Duration: Two days
Intended Audience: Entry Level
Prerequisites (Knowledge/Experience/Education Required): This course is intended for a broad audience. A basic understanding of wave-equation theory is required.
In this course, we will present the generalized theory of seismic interferometry. We will review the relations for interferometry by correlation, convolution and deconvolution. Each of these methods has its pros and cons for specific field applications. Using numerical, laboratory and field data, we will review applications of the different methods for exploration, reservoir characterization and monitoring. We will discuss what can be expected of each of the methods in the light of their limitations (theoretical or practical). We will also present processing techniques that can be used to improve the interferometric results.
