Structural Interpretation of Seismic Reflection

Face-to Face Course

July 8 to 12, 2024

Duration : 5 days

Level : Basic – Intermediate

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Although the focus of the course is structural geology, the topics covered are essential to understanding the inter-dependency across Geophysics, Geology, Reservoir Engineering and the economics that underlies the decision making process throughout the petroleum exploration lifecycle. The course is therefore required training for anybody working and utilizing subsurface data in these disciplines.

The course is devised to be flexible around the experience of the participants and will be tailored to either entry level and intermediate level. It can also be delivered to include an advanced option


The aim of this course is to consider how the interpretation of seismic reflection data can be used within hydrocarbon exploration of complex sedimentary basins with a focus on the interaction of sedimentary and structural evolution and the impact on hydrocarbon systems. It will provide an overview of the fundamentals of geophysical data interpretation and then consider the application in a suite of sedimentary basin settings. It will consider fault geometry, basin fill and implications for reservoir distribution and deformation. The class is taught through integrating recent advances in understanding of structural geology in the context of Basin Analysis, the integration of sedimentary deposition and structural geology and can be applied to both exploration and production settings.


You will be aware of the importance of structural mapping in frontier exploration, trap identification and reservoir modelling

You will apply fundamental restoration techniques to constrain seismic interpretation
