Geos between jobs - Get RokDoc free from Ikon Science

Congratulations on finding 'Geos Between Jobs' webpage!

We hope to help you learn RokDoc in between finding your next job.

Software classes

Winning applicants on software classes receive 3 days free RokDoc training, a RokDoc license and data.  They will be treated like any paying customer and they will have a chance to add valuable rock physics skills to their CVs.  Over 150 Geo's Between Jobs have now been through the scheme.

Listen to Julianne Sharples discuss the program on Houston Radio. 

Theory classes 

From time to time theory classes will also have availability for seats, please note that software will not be provided after theory classes.  Please speak to your tutor if you have special requests. 


We will review and consider all applications from around the world, but please note that the initial intakes will be in the cities in which we have training centers (Houston, London and Kuala Lumpur).    Please note that we are also seeking organizations in other oil centers that would gift the use of a venue to this cause. If you have any ideas for venues, or questions about applications please contact us.

Why you should sign up....

RokDoc is the number one Quantitative Interpretation platform of choice at exploration companies worldwide. As a participant in our ‘Geos between Jobs’ initiative we hope that you will learn useful skills to help you when you successfully return to a role in the industry.

We are offering limited places on the scheme at any given time, as we need to manage the amount of free software in circulation. Please note that we may phone you for a brief interview, or verify your background via our network. Once on-board we hope that this can be a mutually beneficial relationship and we look forward to showing you the power of RokDoc!

This scheme is based on trust. We ask competitors not to abuse it and professionals not to misuse it.

RokDoc 1D2D Introduction - 3 Day Course

Ikon Science Houston Energy Corridor
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.

RokDoc 'how to' Videos

The theory and process of well-ties with a step-by-step slide show and demo. See the RokDoc Petrel* Interconnector export data from Petrel into RokDoc to perform a well-tie and then send a Time Depth conversion back into Petrel*.

See the processes available in RokDoc to perform Gassmann fluid substitution and learn how to do it.

What could you be seeing in your seismic? If you are new to RokDoc, then this 'Introduction to RokDoc Well Viewer' will be an excellent starting point for you. The video delivers all the basics on how the RokDoc well viewer works and how it can be used to plan and execute a fruitful interpretation strategy. If you are starting from nowhere and have a bunch of data but no ideas, you can use the RokDoc well viewer to get started and analyze what you have available to work with. Alternatively if you have some ideas of what you are looking for, the RokDoc well viewer will help you build models to see what drives your seismic response. Enjoy the video and good luck! If you have any questions at all our support team are on hand to assist

This module allows a user with a RokDoc license to move data from Petrel into a RokDoc project, and return results to Petrel. The Interconnector covers all the data needed for RokDoc 1D, 2D and 3D functionality.

This demonstration explains why we do 2D Forward Modelling and how you can easily do it yourself!

Available in RokDoc 3D, coloured inversion is a simple yet robust technique for the estimation of impedance from seismic data. The inversion is well suited to areas with poor or no well control and can be used to derive layer based impedance volumes for improved seismic stratigraphic interpretation. This short video provides an introduction to the main features of the tool in RokDoc 3D, along with guidance, hints and tips to assist the user in its application.

In this first video we work through setting up a RokDoc project with pressure specific settings and show how to load pressure data, kicks and leak off tests.

A focus on RokDoc PressureView. The video shows how to display drilling and pressure data, derive gradients though pressure date and identify hydrocarbon-fluid contacts.

Generate an overburden from a modeled density trend and one or more wells density data. Learn how to handle more than one density trend per well.

Learn how to derive normal compaction trends from Vp and estimate shale pressure.

Learn about adding image log data to your rock physics toolkit, to supplement understanding of stratigraphy, stresses, and rock behaviour.
