SEG Quantitative Interpretation Virtual Workshop

Quantitative Interpretation—Towards Integrated Predictive Sub-Surface Models 24–26 August 2021 | Virtual

Save US$100 by registering and paying prior to 30 June to reap the benefits of this amazing opportunity. Happening from 24–26 August, this virtual workshop will provide a fantastic opportunity to join a discussion about Quantitative Interpretation (QI). The workshop encompasses insightful sessions addressing where QI has been successful; where QI can be fostered to bring in solutions and why; novel techniques and possibilities for overcoming these problems; and where QI is headed.   This workshop aims to examine the increasing role of rock physics combined with inversion and interpretation as a platform for the integration of a broad range of data and information to produce more reliable predictive subsurface models with an increased understanding of uncertainties and risks. It will include not only general submissions, but also feature presentations by invited key experts in their field sharing their experiences.   Make plans to take part in this unique opportunity to have open and extended discussions among colleagues. We encourage anyone involved in subsurface data integration to join the conversation including, but not limited to, seismic processers, petrophysicists, rock physicists, geologists, geophysicists, geomechanicists and reservoir engineers.   Don’t miss out on this opportunity to network and collaborate with the world’s leading geophysicists.

PSAAPG 2021 Virtual Convention Announcement

The PSAAPG Virtual Convention will be held June 21-24, 2021!


• A virtual field trip lead by Dr. Richard Behl of CSU Long Beach on the evening of June 21

• Three technical sessions scheduled for the mornings of June 22, 23 and 24

• Bob Lindblom’s annual Honors and Awards session on the evening of June 23

The technical sessions include:

• A Regulatory and Environmental Geology session, including a panel discussion with the State Geologist Dr Steven Bohlen and William Bartling, recently retired CalGEM Chief Deputy, on the

future of petroleum geologists in California, plus a lecture on the use of the role of stratigraphy in the environmental industry by Rick Cramer, and additional technical presentations.

• A Monterey session with a lecture on age control in the Monterey and its relationship to climate change, plus several technical presentation including updates on the latest Monterey research

• A geochemistry session with Allegra Hosford Scheirer on the use of machine learning to enhance the understanding of petroleum systems, plus several technical presentations focusing on the coastal basins of California
