Upcoming Courses


Pore Pressure Modeling in Unconventional Resource Plays - 1 Day Course

Event Locations
Cost per place: $500.00 Excl. TAX

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the importance of pore pressure modelling with specific application to unconventional resources.


Geomechanics for Unconventional Resource Plays - 1 Day Course

Event Locations
Cost per place: $500.00 Excl. TAX

This one-day course is designed for geologists, geophysicists and engineers who desire a greater understanding of the value that geomechanics can bring to unconventional resource plays. It aims to explore the underlying links between geomechanics, geophysics and reservoir behavior and demonstrate how they can be used to enhance our understanding and predict that behavior pre-drill. This course will enable attendees to make more informed decisions when considering utilization of geomechanics and how to communicate the value that it can bring to their asset. The relevance of geomechanics for the plays of the Greater Permian Basin will also be addressed.


RokDoc 1D2D Introduction - 3 Day Course

Event Locations
Cost per place: $2,900.00 Excl. TAX

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.


Seismic Petrophysics and Geomechanics of Unconventional Shales - 2 Day Course

Event Locations
Denver Area - TBC
Cost per place: $2,900.00 Excl. TAX

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.
