Topic: Coal Seismic Is Not Easy!
Speaker: Mr Henk van Paridon
Venue: Royal on the Park Hotel, Cnr Alice and Albert Streets, Brisbane QLD 4000
Date & Time: 30th March 2017, 12:15 pm
Seismic data from eastern Australian basins are dominated by coal reflectors. Coals are flat lying and go on forever what could be easier?
There is a lot of complexity in coal seams that coal geologists have known about forever, and that petroleum geologists are now coming to grips with. At the coal mine level, geologists are interested in the seams themselves, whereas conventional petroleum geologists are more interested in what’s happening between the coals.
This presentation will focus on the kind of information that is available from high-resolution 3D seismic for underground coal mining and compare it with the same geology at depths of over 2000m. The physics of coal reflectivity will be examined but no equations will used.
The PESA QLD Branch Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held before the commencement of the technical talk.
PESA QLD is running a Geomechanics Short Course in parallel with this Technical Lunch. Attendees of this Short Course qualify for a discounted ticket rate. Please see ticketing options below for further details. For further details about the Geomechanics Short Course, please click HERE
