The Geophysical Institute of Israel, in collaboration with Seismik sro., are proud to host the 2018 Microseismic Workshop in Israel.
This 2 day workshop will provide its participants with a deep understanding of the emerging technologies in induced seismicity and microseismicity and the uses of these methods in Oil and Gas.
Attendees will learn in depth about the different methods and limitations of monitoring, analysis and interpretation.
Leo Eisner is a world leading geophysicist pioneering applied microseismics.
Leo graduated from the Charles University in 1995 (MSc) and Caltech in 2001 (Ph.D.). He spent six years as a Senior Research Scientist with Cambridge Schlumberger Research where he filed five patents and issued numerous publications.
Leo joined MicroSeismic, Inc. in 2008 and was promoted to the Chief Geophysicist in 2009. In 2010 he has accepted honorary position of Purkyne Fellow at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Prague.
He is founder and president of seismic service company Seismik s.r.o. His peer reviewed articles (40+) and extended abstracts (70+) cover a broad range of subjects.
Principles of microseismic monitoring ranging from acquisition in a single monitoring borehole to surface and near surface networks to engineering applications of microseismicity. Case studies will be used to illustrate the main concepts. At the end of this class, attendees should be able to select the right kind of processing, design a survey and understand the uncertainties in the microseismicity.
Attendees will be able to understand and avoid interpretation of uncertain observations and gain insight in true information provided by microseismicity.
Social and scientific aspects related to felt seismicity near oil and gas reservoirs will be discussed including recent case studies
The course will also discuss the latest developments in microseismic applications from source mechanisms through anisotropy to engineering applications. The course will focus on what a geoscientist or engineer using microseismic information needs to know to make good decisions procuring, understanding and applying microseismic results and information in their work.
