Webinar: Reflections on FWI
From the FORCE Geophysical Methods working group, we're pleased to announce dual Fall 2021 virtual seminars: “Reflections on FWI” (25 October 2021), and “Impressions of FWI” (1 November 2021). The dual seminars will allow us to cover all the latest in technical developments from our most popular vendors, as well as review recent case studies and applications from our most prevalent operators. Please set your calendars and join us for two “revealing” sessions on the latest developments and applications in FWI technology.
Geophysical Methods – Dual Seminars on Full Waveform Inversion
From the FORCE Geophysical Methods working group, we're pleased to announce dual Fall 2021 virtual seminars:
“Reflections on FWI” (25 October 2021) and “Impressions of FWI” (1 November 2021)
The dual seminars will allow us to cover all the latest in technical developments from our most popular vendors, as well as review recent case studies and applications from our most prevalent operators.
Both seminars will be virtually hosted on MS Teams, and are open to all interested employees of FORCE member companies (free of charge).
Session 1, Oct. 25: “Reflections on FWI” – noon to 4pm.
Our first session will be a series of technical presentations from top FWI vendors, including PGS, WesternGeco, CGG, DUG, Ion and TGS, with a focus on real-world issues of FWI: challenges, limitations, geographical and structural implications, acquisition parameters and how they interact with algorithms, etc. Anticipated presentations include Where FWI has Been and Where it is Going, High-frequency FWI for Interpretation, Using Ultra-long Offsets with FWI, and FWI with OBN. Each presentation will include audience Q&A with the presenting specialists.
Session 2, Nov. 1: “Impressions of FWI” – noon to 4pm.
Our second session will have two elements, beginning with two technical presentations from academic institutions, including Romain Brossier (Principle Investigator, Seiscope II FWI Project, Université Grenoble Alpes). The academic sessions will be followed by three “operator forums” – hosted by Equinor, Lundin and Aker BP. Each forum includes case study presentations on real-world operational problems, followed by a distinguished panel discussion with interactive audience Q&A.
