Mixing theory and practice for a better understanding
Course Type Classroom Course
Duration 7 days
That course is designed for Geoscientists willing to better understand Geophysics involvement and possibilities within E&P projects. That includes a wide scope of geophysical topics such as seismic acquisition & processing, a large part over seismic interpretation (developing structural and stratigraphic interpretation as well as resolution concerns and seismic-to-well ties), non-seismic methods, data formats, geodesy and seismic digitalization. Lecture and exercises on real data.
After the course, attendees could be able to:
Take a critical look on the most pertinent geophysical methods to be applied depending on the context.
Be able to exchange on technical matters with experts in geophysics or partners and take critical decisions regarding geophysics on a project.
QC geophysical data.
This course is based on interactive pedagogy and relies as much as possible on common sense (and not only on computer software applications…). Numerous practice sessions based on real data will be interpreted, both individually and collectively. This course is available in French, English (with English documentation).
There is no specific requirement for this course. It should be organized in any meeting room with common HSE characteristics, in your company premises or elsewhere. Each participant must have a computer with following minimum requirements:
Free Space HD: 4 GB,
Amount of RAM: 8 GB RAM,
CPU speed: 2.2 GHz,
CPU Core count: 4,
Video Resolution: 1280*1024,
Bits Color: 32.
Technical software for exercises shall be provided to each participant for the whole duration of the course.

Ludovic Peignard began his career as an exploration geophysicist, involved in many Oil & Gas projects, covering various domains of geosciences.
While getting experienced in geosciences, feeling a lack of flexible and swift software solution in the Oil & Gas Industry, Ludovic has developed EarthQuick, a software to act as a companion for Geoscientists. The solution evolved rapidly and let now geoscientists performed usual tasks which are part of their redundant duties, covering a wide range of facilities, from geosciences data loading and interpretation to volumes assessment, passing by mCSEM feasibility studies. From 2016, EarthQuick has also turned to Near Surface issues, keeping the same motto: letting user get straight to the point through simple and intuitive workflows.
From 2013, Ludovic has become a geophysicist consultant, a technical software expert and an associate professor in Geophysics at different reference institutions (IFP School, IFP Training, École et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre (EOST), Polytech Sorbonne (UPMC) and École Nationale Supérieure de Géologie (ENSG)).
Ludovic graduated M.Sc.'s from the EOST (France) in 2006 and from the IFP School in 2007, major Geophysics.
