Seismic Through the Asset Lifecycle – Sharing Advances in Geophysics
Call for Abstracts – Deadline 30 January 2019
Seismic 2019 will explore the entire spectrum of seismic technology from exploration through development and production to abandonment – the lifecycle of the asset.
The conference will focus on advances in seismic acquisition, processing and quantitative interpretation, how these are being applied and provide value. Other themes include machine learning in seismic interpretation to compliment manual interpretation; seismic aspects of integrated reservoir modelling; borehole seismic and non-seismic technologies.
Nick Richardson, Exploration and New Ventures Manager OGA said:
“In order to fulfil obligations under the MER UK Strategy, licensees operating on the UKCS must ensure that technologies, including new and emerging technologies, are deployed to their optimum effect. This includes embracing the full-lifecycle application of Geophysical Technologies which have a vital role in identifying and delivering resources for both new and existing fields adding value to the UK economy.”
If you have experiences to share then we invite you to submit a short 200 word abstract indicating which type of presentation you prefer from the following options:
- Formal 20 minute presentations – include real field data; case histories demonstrating added value; positive impact; lower production costs; more reserves; enhanced production.
- Informal 5 minute Techbyte presentations – new game changing technology or innovative applications for existing technology
- Poster presentations in the exhibition area – for more detailed explanation and two-way discussion
Abstracts will close on 30th January 2019.
A summary of up to 200 words including title, presenter, company affiliation and the presentation type* should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org For any queries, call the Events Team on 01224 646311.
*The Organising Committee reserves the right to decide which session the presentation is best suited to.

Andy Alexander, Siccar Point and part of the organizing committee, explains why companies should get involved and what he’s looking forward to seeing at the conference.
“Seismic presents a great opportunity to build on the excellent conferences that have gone before and learn from companies at the forefront of seismic advancements. These conferences provide an opportunity for individuals or companies to showcase their latest technical work at the only geophysics discipline-specific conference in Aberdeen.
“The rate of change of technological innovations in geophysics is, and has always been, fast so it is difficult to stay “current” without attending conferences or meeting your peers on a reasonably regular basis. Particularly coming out of a prolonged industry downturn, it is a great time to share and learn about successes, failures and ideas. Geophysicists and geoscientists have always tended to push the boundaries of technology to get faster and better solutions and this trend seems likely to continue. I know from working with our partners and contractors on various assets that there have been significant steps forward in seismic data acquisition, imaging, visualisation and analysis. It’s clear that the power at our fingertips in terms of workstations, access to cloud computing and software evolution is allowing the geoscience community to evaluate more data, more quickly and with better integration with other data types. The volume and variety of geophysical data we acquire and deal with is enormous which makes it ripe for the emerging discipline of “data science” to apply existing and modern machine learning algorithms.
“So if you have any recent examples of the application of recent or new technology it would be great to hear from you at Seismic 2019. Remember, it can be linked to development or exploration and appraisal problems and can be anywhere on the data curve from acquisition to processing to interpretation. The UK oil and gas industry needs the geophysical community to keep pushing seismic data to deliver new and competitive, high value barrels. Collaboration is a key part of this – so be a part of it and consider submitting an abstract when fresh back from the Christmas break. The more abstracts the merrier – you know you want to!”

We recognise that on occasions delegates will book onto events and subsequently find that they are unable to attend. In these situations we ask that delegates notify us of their need to cancel an event booking as soon as possible.
Our cancellation policy is as follows:
Please send cancellation details to the event organiser by email or by telephone.
Please inform the event organiser if you wish to send a replacement delegate, including their requirements (e.g. dietary, access etc). Please supply their full contact details so that any advance paperwork can be supplied directly to the replacement.
If you notify the organisers of your cancellation up to two weeks prior to the event, we will provide a full refund.
If you notify the organisers of your cancellation less than two weeks prior to the event the full cost will be payable and only delegate substitution will be allowed.
Where you have booked a place and do not attend without notifying the organisers of your cancellation the full fee will be payable.
