2D and 3D seismic data are major sources of information in the oil and gas industry, as well as for geothermal energy activities, carbon sequestration in geological reservoirs and offshore wind energy. In this short article we will cover the basics of seismic horizon interpretation and how this is used to obtain stratigraphic information.
Basin classification based on tectonic settings provides a framework not only for understanding the genesis and evolution of petroleum basins and their sedimentary fill but also process-based analogs for the exploration of frontier basins.
As we move into the world of machine learning and artificial intelligence, it is increasingly important that geoscientists gain a better understanding of coding and how it can be used in the oil and gas industry. Jo Bagguley from the UK Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) tells us about an innovative approach to help improve this understanding: the coding ‘hackathon’.
At G-Camp teachers learn about geology through a very diverse and eye-opening field experience, returning to their classrooms eager to share their new-found knowledge and create excitement in the geosciences to inspire their students.
