Event status:

Fundamental advances in the seismic imaging and characterization of carbonate platform strata, including reservoir rocks, have revolutionized understanding of carbonate geomorphology, stratigraphy and reservoir architecture.

This meeting aims to synthesize these innovative developments and explore the variety of carbonate characteristics that can now be interpreted from modern and reprocessed seismic data. It will discuss and illustrate how the technology can be used in geological evaluation including for exploration, development and production, as well as for understanding long-term and large scale forcing of carbonate platform development.

The focus will be on practical geoscience applications and the meeting will provide a forum for lively interaction between the upstream oil industry, seismic contractors, and carbonate sedimentology researchers.
