Target Audience:
Regulators, operators, service companies, data and software vendors, Schools (educators, students). Project Managers, Geologists, O&G Engineers, Financial, Field Workers, Business Analyst, Data Governance, Data Architect, Data Management Leaders, Data Managers, Database Analyst, Software Developers.

Course Description:
Seismic information can be challenging to manage. Often, location files contain point designations that are difficult to represent on maps or other displays. Locations may refer to real or projected positions on the surface of the earth or in the sub surface. This class reviews some of the key complexities that exist in seismic location information, and how this information is managed in the PPDM 3.9 data model.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Review and discuss types of seismic locations including shot points, receiver points and recorded points
  • Explore the complexities of seismic geometries and relate architectural principles for sequences, 2-D and 3-D geometries and processing and interpreting geometries
  • Review and describe seismic locations in PPDM 3.9

Evaluation Method(s) / Metrics:
Final Exam available upon request.

Completion Award:
PPDM Certificate of Completion

Special Requirements:
  • Experience working with and understanding spatial data and its use in mapping or GIS systems
  • Specific training in geospatial data is mandatory; without this knowledge the class concepts will be very difficult to understand
  • Understand and apply the principles laid out in the PPDM Design Principles class
  • General knowledge of the oil and gas industry, including the importance of the complexities of three dimensions, time and substances to GIS systems
  • Knowledge of Relational Database systems and how they work
