2020 3D Seismic Symposium Call for Papers

3D Seismic Symposium: Vision 2020: Revealing the Reservoir:

The 26th annual 3D Seismic Symposium, sponsored by the Denver Geophysical Society (DGS), will be held Tuesday 17 March, 2020 at the Ellie Caulkins Auditorium, Denver Center for the Performing Arts Complex in downtown Denver, Colorado.  Although many of the talks focus on the application of seismic and other geophysical tools, we have a number of presentations that take an integrated approach.

Kevin Raterman, Engineering Fellow at ConocoPhillips, will kick off the day by presenting the simulated rock volume (SRV) pilot project undertaken in the Eagle Ford.  Utilizing a dataset including core, image log, microseismic, DTS/DAS, and pressure data, the observed reservoir state preceding and following hydraulic fracturing will be presented, emphasizing geologic, 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.

To jump start the symposium, the DGS will host a happy hour along with the Student Challenge Bowl (not just for students) on Monday, 16 March 2020 at Ellie Caulkins.
