Seismic Interpretation with DUG Insight

Perth 05 - 07 Oct 2020

This course follows a seismic interpretation workflow, integrating regional geology, wells, and 2D and 3D seismic data to perform structural and stratigraphic interpretation and mapping. The workflow starts with well and seismic data management, works through horizon and fault interpretation, investigates mapping and prospect generation and concludes with advanced colour blending and 3D visualisation.

Who should attend?

Geophysicists, Geologists, Interpreters and technical staff.


Basic knowledge of seismic interpretation is recommended. Prior experience with DUG Insight is not required.


3 days


In-class training, instructor-led, workflow-based.

What’s included?

All training sessions include lunch and a light snack. Required equipment, software, sample data and printed training materials are provided. Students are welcome to take the printed documentation with them at the end of the course.
