30 years of 4D seismic on the Norwegian Continental Shelf

In the last 4 decades, major technological improvements have led to a giant leap in our approach of reservoir modelling, in particular thanks to a more generalized used of 4D seismic in integrated reservoir characterization. This workshop will be an opportunity to attend case studies and short tutorials, offering a holistic approach of 4D. At the dawn of digital era, let’s gather to learn back from our experiences and share our vision for the future of 4D seismic! 

AkerBP, ConocoPhillips, Equinor and several others have already confirmed contributions but there are still openings. Please submit your contribution; title and a short abstract as soon as possible but no later than September 16th to one of the committee member listed at the bottom.

The seminar includes invited talk/tutorials. Martin Landrø, NTNU, will present on "The past, present & future of 4D seismic applications" and Colin Macbeth, ETLP/HW, will dive into various 4D technical topics, from time-shifts to automated history-matching.

We plan to include discussion/breakout sessions to address various   issues on the use of 4D seismic. If you have specific question on this technology, observations, experiences, learnings or material you could share in these sessions, please contact one of the committee members.  This may be an opportunity for getting "free" advices assistance from the wider 4D community.

Contingent on interest and applicability there may be opportunities for technology or service vendor to present dedicated tools/products during the breakout sessions and break. Please notify the committee about such requests, by September 16th.

The first day will be closed out by an informal reception/dinner at NPD.

FORCE seminars have previously been fully booked with waiting lists so you are encouraged to sign up as soon as you know you will attend.
