Student Lecture 1

Thursday, 10 April, 10:00 – 11:30, Banquet Hall, Paulaner Restaurant

Title: Overcoming the Geological Complexity Thanks to Integration of Innovative Technologies: the 4D and EOR Values

Lecturer: Renaud Gauchet (Total E&P Russie)

Description: Based on a deep offshore field case, the integration of the latest innovative technology such as sedimentology based on 3D seismic, 4D seismic, etc... allow to better understand geology and consequently design future development phases such as polymer injection and monitoring.

Exhibition Tours

Thursday, 10 April, 11:30 – 13:00, Exhibition Area

The exhibition introduces many companies every year and students will have the opportunity to become familiar with them by participating in guided exhibition tours, specially organized and dedicated to students. The representatives of the companies at the exhibition floor will make special student presentations and answer their questions. This is a fantastic opportunity for the students to meet their future colleagues and employers.

Throughout the day and after the student programme all participants are encouraged to meet geoscience professionals, ask questions and establish professional contacts.

Student Lecture 2

Thursday, 10 April, 14:00 – 15:30, Banquet Hall, Paulaner Restaurant

Title: Recent Advances in Marine Acquisition & Processing

Lecturer: Roald van Borselen (PGS)

Description: In the talk, key technologies will be discussed that have recently changed the landscape in marine seismic acquisition & processing: Multi-/wide-/rich-azimuth Acquisition & Processing, Broad band Acquisition & Processing, and Simultaneous Source Acquisition & Processing. The technological drivers behind these methods will be discussed and numerous examples and applications will be shown.

EAGE Geo-Quiz

Thursday, 10 April, 15:30 – 17:00, Banquet Hall, Paulaner Restaurant

One of the most popular student activities, EAGE Geo-Quiz, will again take place at Saint Petersburg 2014. This friendly competition of up to 25 student teams will be a challenge for all students who can prove their geosciences knowledge and skills learned during the course of their studies. An extensive competition will test many aspects of modern geoscience and engineering, with multiple-answer time-limited questions varying from seismic interpretation to drilling, from mathematical models to practical aspects of field development. Correct and timely answers will increase the score while wrong and rushed answers can result in points being deducted.

The winning team will receive a fantastic prize: travel grants for each team member to attend the 76th annual EAGE conference and exhibition, which will take place on 16-19 June 2014 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
