2010 IQ Earth Forum
Quantitative Subsurface Integration
25-28 January 2010
The Society of Exploration Geophysicists convened an IQ Earth Forum to initiate concrete discussions to create a fundamental change in visualizing and predicting subsurface structure, rock and fluid properties; driven by renewed focus on multidisciplinary integration and the new quantitative earth model paradigm.
This is a bold challenge that most players in the petroleum industry realize and to various degrees are already addressing. Leading universities are also establishing multidisciplinary educational initiatives to enable the next generation subsurface scientist.
The Forum was a critical first step toward a successful multi-year initiative. Thirty-three invited presentations addressed topics from technology to work process to people.
The Forum brought together prominent invited participants from a broad range of oil companies, service companies, and universities.
