PESA VIC-TAS July Technical Meeting: Enhancing SAR seep interpretation with broadband seismic data

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 @ 12:00 - 14:00

Event Categories:

Guest Speaker: Heather Carey

Heather Carey is a Geologist with CGG Multi-Client and New Ventures. Heather has over 10 years experience as an exploration geologist, focusing primarily on greenfield and frontier areas in Asia-Pacific and North America. Heather’s experience includes evaluating exploration opportunities across a range of tectonic environments, project management, regional mapping, 3D modelling, and supervising drill programs. Heather is a graduate of the University of Victoria (Canada) holding a B.Sc. in Geology and is a member of the Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG) and Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia (PESA).

The development of broadband seismic allows clearer imaging of both low and high frequencies, as well as the enhanced imaging of subsurface features such as DHI’s. By combining 2D seismic data with sea surface oil slick data derived from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery, an oil slicks to seismic workflow has been developed by CGG which allows the linking of sea surface slicks with features potentially related to seepage on the seabed and within the subsurface. Two focused Area Of Interest (AOI) were selected in East Timor and the Ceduna Basin to apply the slick to seismic workflow. Results show that there is a demonstrable relationship between locations of interpreted slicks and subsurface features related to hydrocarbons or hydrocarbon migration.

Meeting Date: Wednesday 19 July; 12 noon to 2 pm
