Dr. Carolan Laudon will be part of the India Drilling & Exploration Conference
Dr. Carolan Laudon will be a keynote speaker at the India Drilling & Exploration Conference Digital Transformation (IDEC). IDEC was launched as a platform to bring & share the latest trends & developments & future of the oil & gas industry. The conference seeks to expand in-depth discussions, techniques and applied knowledge along with the technological challenges of oil & gas digitalization.
Dr. Laudon’s presentation will demonstrate a novel machine learning fault detection workflow based on CNN fault detection models trained from 3D synthetic seismic amplitude data and fault labels. Synthetic training data are potentially superior to user-picked 2D or 2.5 D models as they are more precise, are fully 3D, and have no interpreters’ bias embedded into the fault training data. In addition, each CNN model is trained only once but is applied to any 3D seismic data set, thus saving significant compute time.
