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.

RokDoc Rock Physics Model Templates - 1 Day Course

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 characterization.

RokDoc 3D - 1 Day Course

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 in 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.

RokDoc SDC & Inversion - 3 Day Course

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.

RokDoc Ji-Fi - 2 Day Course

RokDoc Ji-Fi (Joint Impedance & Facies Inversion) is our most innovative inversion technology. This course takes you through detailed workflows; starting from the generation of facies logs, through to running the inversion and QC of the results, so you fully cover all its extensive capabilities. As well as learning how to drive the software, all relevant underlying principles are discussed, and results reviewed.

RokDoc 4D Reservoir Monitoring - 1.5 Day Course

This course aims to impart to the user a thorough understanding of how to use the Reservoir Monitoring functionality within RokDoc. The RokDoc Reservoir Monitoring add-on provides the tools, functionality and workflows needed for the integration of geological, geophysical and reservoir engineering data to perform 3D and 4D analyses. Some level of prior experience and understanding of the RokDoc Rock Physics module is assumed.

RokDoc PressureView - 1 Day Course

This course provides an introduction to RokDoc PressureView, to allow the user to view a variety of pressure data and log types in a single integrated package. No previous experience of using RokDoc is required.

RokDoc GeoPressure Calculators - 1 Day Course

This course introduces the attendee to the basics of the GeoPressure Calculator (GPC) and Fracture Pressure Calculator (FPC) modules within RokDoc. Using datasets from the Gulf of Mexico the course introduces some of the basic concepts of overburden calculation, pore pressure prediction and fracture pressure calculation, but is not intended to be a comprehensive introduction to the often challenging field of pore pressure prediction in shales. The course outlines the background theory of predicting pore pressure in shales and then proceeds to demonstrate these using the GPC and FPC applications. Although no previous experience of using RokDoc is required, it is advantageous.

RokDoc PressureView, GeoPressure Calculators & Seismic Pressure Calculator - 3 Day Course

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.

RokDoc GeoMechanics - 3 Day Course

This course introduces RokDoc GeoMechanics and Image Logs functionality, as well as a brief introduction to PressureView.

iPoint for Geoscientists - 2 Day Course

Intended for either those who are new to iPoint, or an existing user looking to learn about the latest features and utilize some of the more advanced geoscience tools.

iPoint for Data Management - 3 Day Course

Intended for Data Technicians and Data Management. Covers all aspects of System Administration including managing users and their permissions and the setting and management of data standards.

Pore Pressure Modeling in Unconventional Resource Plays - 1 Day Course

This workshop discusses the importance of pore pressure modeling with specific application to unconventional resources. Traditional pore pressure modeling techniques will be briefly reviewed, recognizing the uncertainties within these methods with specific applications to well planning.

Practical Applications of Time-Lapse (4D) Seismic Data - 2 Day Course

This two-day course provides an overview of the fundamentals of 4D seismic technology. Starting with technology’s role in field lifecycle planning, then onto seismic acquisition, processing, and analysis. A primary focus of the course is interpretation and data integration.

Seismic Petrophysics and Geomechanics of Unconventional Shales - 2 Day Course

This two-day training class is based on the unconventional chapters from Lev Vernik’s recently published, virtually sold-out book “Seismic Petrophysics in Quantitative Interpretation”. The course is exclusively available with Ikon Science.

Pressures and Overpressure in the Subsurface - 3 Day Course

GSL Logo The main objective of this 3 Day course is for attendees to learn how pressure data affects 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.

Definition of Uncertainty in Pore Pressure Prediction - 1.5 Day Course

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 uncertainties 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.

Advanced Pressure Concepts - 3 Day Course

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.

Essentials of Rock Physics and Seismic Amplitude Interpretation - 3 Day Course

This highly acclaimed course 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 assess drilling risk. Dr Rob Simm of Rock Physics Associates Ltd has granted Ikon Science the rights to deliver this course by our approved instructors.

Introduction to Geomechanics - 3 Day Course

Learn 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.

Introduction to Image Log Data and Interpretation Techniques - 3 Day Course

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.
