The course will provide a very accessible overview of the many concepts behind broadband seismic (primarily offshore) and implications for the asset-based geoscientist. Comprehensive case study material will be presented from all regions of the world and for various stages of the exploration, appraisal, and development asset life cycle.

Various broadband seismic technologies and commercial offerings will be objectively discussed, along with their respective merits with regards to quantitative reservoir characterization and reservoir imaging using real-world application examples. Possible pitfalls and issues with regards to the treatment of broadband data will also be identified, and how these might lead to flawed or erroneous QI.
