ASEG-WA: July Technical Talk

PGS chief scientist and technology analyst Andrew Long will lecture on the growth of automation in marine seismic acquisition and processing.

Oil and gas exploration is one of the countless industries starting to embrace digitalization platforms, robotization, and various other forms of automation to improve the efficiency of the related processes involved in how the data are delivered.

Some grandiose proposals in industry forums today include seismic processing-to-drilling workflows with timeframes of only a few days being achievable. Andrew will present several examples of how autonomous robotization is augmenting marine seismic acquisition, the use of simulation and remote control facilities for managing field operations, current bottlenecks to real-time acquisition and processing, directions in AI and deep learning for seismic processing and imaging (including analogs to the minerals industry), and consider the challenges of significantly reduced human interaction to the management of future projects.

This presentation is designed as a broad overview, rather than presenting commercial solutions.
