Working Efficiently as an Exploration Geophysicist - Tips and Tricks
Paradigm is proud to unveil its new lecture series, "A Day in the Life of a Geoscientist". In this series, prominent geoscientists will share their knowledge and experience on a variety of topics of vital interest to our industry.
Our value as geophysicists is our ability to make recommendations to management, clients and partners regarding the value of their data and/or property. Subsequently, we act as investment advisors, with significant decisions being made based upon the work that we do. Whether undertaking data quality control, reconnaissance of a large frontier area, detailed prospect generation or assessment of a data room, it is advantageous to be an efficient geophysicist, in order to allow sufficient time to collaborate and think deeply. Using Paradigm 3D Canvas and a marine dataset, we will step through a workflow to efficiently evaluate seismic data, identify pitfalls, and present some tips and tricks for the seismic interpreter.
