2nd Geoscience & Engineering in the Energy Transition Conference

2nd Geoscience & Engineering in the Energy Transition Conference

EAGE invites you to join us (again) for the second conference in Strasbourg in November 2021, it is yet unclear what the pandemic will mean for the energy transition. When we started preparing the first conference ‘Geoscience and Engineering for the Energy Transition (GET2020)’ one year ago, we could not imagine where the world – and the energy sector – would be by the time it was held in November.

Fifth EAGE Workshop on High Performance Computing for Upstream

Fifth EAGE Workshop on High Performance Computing for Upstream

High-Performance-Computing plays a leading role in our current energy business and will be of critical importance for a successful energy transition. Looking across multiple industries, our business undoubtedly exploits the largest High-Performance-Computing capacity. HPC helps in seeking higher productivity, lowering costs and making better use of huge amounts of data through high-performance simulation and data analytics. Algorithms performing as fast as possible on the best available hardware have a direct impact on many of the decisions shaping our business. This is particularly true in this post COVID world. Achieving this goal, through the various forms of HPC, from Supercomputers on premise to elastic and versatile solutions on the cloud, is the underlying theme of this fifth instance of the EAGE HPC for Upstream: “Heterogeneous HPC: Challenges, Current and Future Trends”.

SEG EVOLVE PROGRAM: PERUGIA UNIVERSITY TO JOIN THE CHALLENGE AGAIN!

SEG EVOLVE PROGRAM: PERUGIA UNIVERSITY TO JOIN THE CHALLENGE AGAIN!

EVOLVE (https://seg.org/EVOLVE) is a Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG, https://seg.org/) 6-months program, aiming to find the best investment opportunity on the Cooper Basin (Queensland, Australia), selected as a UNIPG study site for this 2021 edition (January-June). This academic program offers to students the possibility to work on Geophysical and Geological (G&G) data with a multidisciplinary approach and using Energy Industry software specifically developed for exploration and production purposes. The program is developed under the close supervision of EVOLVE-SEG mentors and University professors. It is the third consecutive year that a team of students of the Dipartimento di Fisica e Geologia – Università degli Studi di Perugia – is selected in Italy.

“ChattingWith” Prof. Maurizio Fedi & Dott. Gianluca Gabbriellini – NEW TRENDS OF INTERPRETATION FOR POTENTIAL FIELDS

“ChattingWith” Prof. Maurizio Fedi & Dott. Gianluca Gabbriellini – NEW TRENDS OF INTERPRETATION FOR POTENTIAL FIELDS

Potential fields are passive methods. They are based on the measurement of the Earth’s natural gravimetric and magnetic fields. In gravimetry, geophysicists measure the vertical component of the gravitational acceleration vector with great precision. In the case of magnetism, it is possible to measure the three components of the magnetic field vector or, more commonly, a single component called the total field. It refers to the direction of the main field that originates in the liquid outer core of the Earth…

Webinar: Microseismic Monitoring: What I have learned in the last four years

Webinar: Microseismic Monitoring: What I have learned in the last four years

In 2016, Peter Duncan presented a two-day overview of microseismic monitoring as he understood it at that time. Over the last four years the application of microseismic data, particularly to the development of unconventional resources through hydraulic fracturing, has made great strides particularly through integration with other reservoir geology and engineering practices. In this course, Duncan will try to bring you up to date on what has been accomplished using case histories of recent projects.

Webinar: Velocities, Imaging and Waveform Inversion

Webinar: Velocities, Imaging and Waveform Inversion

The course is designed for practicing geoscientists and geoscience students who desire a better understanding of the principles and limitations of both current and emerging technologies involved in subsurface parameter estimation and imaging. The material is designed to help readers better understand how contemporary velocity estimation methods work, and what approximations are involved in obtaining computationally tractable solutions. The evolution of the industry’s approaches to building earth models with ray tomography and full waveform inversion is covered, as are some of the emerging possibilities for replacing imaging techniques with direct subsurface parameter inversion methods. The approach will be mostly non-mathematical, concentrating on an intuitive understanding of the principles, demonstrating them via case histories.

THE IMAGE AND SOUND PROCESSING LAB OF POLITECNICO DI MILANO

THE IMAGE AND SOUND PROCESSING LAB OF POLITECNICO DI MILANO

The Image and Sound Processing Lab (ISPL) of the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB) of the Politecnico di Milano has more than twenty years of experience on applying advanced signal processing and machine learning techniques to multidimensional data.
In the last five years, ISPL has extended the field of application of its expertise to geophysical data. This has been possible due to the deep knowledge on seismic data processing that is present at DEIB thanks to Prof. Fabio Rocca and by Prof. Giuseppe Drufuca.

SEG Geophysics Field Camp in Southern Italy 2020

SEG Geophysics Field Camp in Southern Italy 2020

FIELD CAMP OUTLINE: the camp will be held in the so called Verteglia Plain (Montella, AV). This site represents a small sedimentary basin located at 1230 m a.s.l. on the Terminio Mount, an important carbonate structure of the Southern Apennines.

In this area, the highly karstified bedrock and the filling pyroclastic sediments characterize a complex and particular hydrogeological scenario. The aim of the field camp is therefore double: training activities on geophysical data acquisitions; detection of geological features of the site through different geophysical measurements.
