A complete introductory training designed for geoscientists
Course Type Short Course
Duration 2 days
Since its rise in the noughties, the ability of the mCSEM to evaluate the spatial distribution of the resistivity made it a widely used technique of the E&P sector. Indeed, resistivity is a physical quantity which is significantly influenced by HC bearing reservoir.
That course gets back to Electromagnetism basics, other techniques (MT, Transient EM, …) and highlights mCSEM abilities and limitations through some examples and a case study.
After attending that course, participants shall understand abilities and limitations of mCSEM and could be in charge of acquisition/processing QC and feasibility surveys.
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 and Spanish (with English documentation).
There is no specific requirement for this course. It should be organised in any meeting room with common HSE characteristics, in your company premises or elsewhere.
Day 1 – Morning: Introduction and Electromagnetism Theory (Lecture), Day 1 – Afternoon: Electromagnetism Theory and Applications to Geosciences (Lecture), Day 2 – Morning: Focus on feasibility (Practice session), Operations (Lecture), case study (Practice session), Day 2 – Afternoon: Case study (Practice session) and Course wrap-up.
This course was designed for Subsurface professionals with experience in Geophysics and Geology.
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.
