Rock physics and geopressure training from Ikon Science

Training Course Catalog

Intended for new and intermediate users who require an introduction to RokDoc and the rock physics theories behind the software. Delegates are guided through a typical RokDoc workflow, comprising data loading and QC, predicting missing data with calibrated rock physics models, blocky modelling, log-based rock physics analysis and 2D forward modelling.
This course is intended for users of RokDoc who would like to refresh their skills. Following 11 Workflows throughout the day, attendees can brush up on their RokDoc skills.
Half of this course is allocated to the theory and the other half to practice with the software. The course first covers the basic principles of the well tie and best practice QC measures. Next is a discussion of the potential shortcomings of the classic well tie techniques when dealing with modern broadband seismic data. Finally the new advanced well tie methods recently developed for broadband seismic data are introduced and practiced hands-on in RokDoc.
Intended for intermediate RokDoc users who require an introduction to RokDoc 3D. Attendees are taken through a series of workflows illustrating the predictive power of rock physics models, before progressing to RokDoc 3D, where the user can model lithologies and fluids, manipulate seismic inversion volumes, create elastic and geological property volumes, and export them to SEG-Y.
Intended for intermediate RokDoc users who require an introduction to Rock Physics Model Templates and RokDoc 3D. Attendees are taken through a series of workflows illustrating the predictive power of rock physics models, before progressing to RokDoc-3D, where the user can model lithologies and fluids, manipulate seismic inversion volumes, create elastic and geological property volumes, and export them to SEG-Y.
This two-day course is intended for industry professionals aiming to reduce uncertainty in their seismic interpretation, through the common-sense application of standard rock physics workflows. You will examine the quantitative relationship between geology and geophysics in an intuitive, interactive way, leading to an increased understanding of the seismic response in the subsurface.
Intended for intermediate RokDoc users who require an introduction to Rock Physics Model Templates. Attendees are taken through a series of workflows illustrating the predictive power of rock physics models for reservoir characterisation.
This course is intended for new and intermediate RokDoc ChronoSeis users, and covers 3D/4D modelling, geostatistical properties, volumetrics, seismic inversion and reservoir monitoring workflows all using the RokDoc ChronoSeis software.
Attendees learn to operate the software by applying it to practical examples; this is supplemented by presentations of the underlying principles and by discussion of the results obtained, with emphasis on QC methods.
Follow detailed workflows to become an expert in our most innovative inversion technology, starting from the generation of facies logs, through to running the inversion and QC of the results. As well as learning how to apply the software, all relevant underlying principles are discussed and results reviewed.
This course provides an introduction to RokDoc PressureView, to allow the user view a variety of pressure data and log types in a single integrated package. No previous experience of using RokDoc is required.
This course introduces the attendee to the basics of the GeoPressure Calculator (GPC) and Fracture Pressure Calculator (FPC) modules within RokDoc.
This course is designed to be an introduction to PressureView, which is now integrated in RokDoc, RokDoc PressureView and the GeoPressure Calculators. No previous experience of using PressureView or RokDoc is required.
This course is designed to be an introduction to PressureView, GeoPressure Calculator and Fracture Pressure Calculator modules within RokDoc. This course also introduces users to the features and functionality of Seismic Pressure Calculator.
This course provides an introduction to RokDoc GeoMechanics and Image Logs functionality, as well as a brief introduction to PressureView.
The main objective of this 3 Day course is for attendees to learn how pressure data effects the safe and optimal exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbon reservoirs.Overpressure is found in most sedimentary basins, where reservoirs tend to be fine-grained lithologies, especially at depths >2.0km below sea-bed.
Taught by Jorg Herwanger. The main geomechanical applications in this course will focus on fractures and hydraulic stimulation (fracture orientation and containment, re-activation of pre-existing fractures versus creation of new fractures, shear fractures versus tensile fractures, fault stability), and wellbore stability.
The course is aimed at both understanding and reducing uncertainty during well planning and design. Through discussion, you will learn how to consider both data-driven uncertainty as well as process-driven approaches. The ultimate aim is to see if Expected and High Cases can be appropriately risked such that percentage likelihood can be assigned to each.
The principal objective of this course is to teach participants how pressure can be predicted in complex geological settings as well as being used for seal breach analysis and the understanding of hydrodynamic plays.
This highly acclaimed and constantly evolving course (now in its 11th year), is a must for all geoscientists wanting to understand rock physics principles, their application to amplitude interpretation (including AVO reflectivity and elastic inversion products) and how they can be applied to reduce drilling risk.
This course is a condensed version of the 3 Day ‘The Essentials of Rock Physics for Seismic Amplitude Interpretation’ designed by Dr Rob Simm of Rock Physics Associates.
This course introduces attendees to the fundamental concepts underpinning any geomechanical study such as rock properties, the relationship between stress and strain, sources of stress and the components of a full stress tensor.
Designed to give an understanding of the interpretation process, and the nature of the results in the context of the drilling environment and data quality. Where possible, examples and practical exercises utilise real world data and results. This course is for anyone involved in petroleum related exploration or well planning without detailed geomechanical experience.

This course is dedicated to rock-physics-based workflows leading to (a) the generation of site-specific transforms between the properties (porosity, mineralogy, solid-frame geometry) and conditions (pressure and pore fluid) of rock and its elastic properties and (b) using the models thus established to create geologically plausible catalogues of the seismic amplitude as a function of rock properties and conditions.
