Petrel is a software tool which is used in the petroleum exploration and production industry. Through this software tool, seismic data can be interpreted and well correlations can be performed building and simulating reservoir models. Volumes can be calculated and maps can be produced for design development strategies for maximizing reservoir exploitation. The software tool further provides risk and un-certainty assessment throughout the reservoir lifecycle. The latest version of petrel released in 2010 contains major enhancements and a new structural modeling workflow which provides the users with the ability to build water tight structural models. Several other enhancements including fracture modeling, multipoint geostatistics and the volume interpretation overflow is also included in this version. Petrel also comes with the option of including several plugins which can be downloaded from the online stores such as The Ocean Store. The Petrel RTI or Ray tracing and Illumination tool comprises of a full range of acquisition, quality control, survey design and imaging tasks which can be used for developing different methods, create synthetic data, illuminate targets, derive results in seismic survey design and process/image workflows with respect to E&P industry.

Course Details

This Ray Tracing and Illumination with Petrel online training course provides explanations for the different models and methods of implementing Petrel RTI for tracing rays and recognizing the methods to be used in various situations. The trainees will learn to create and import commonly used acquisition configurations into RTI and also trace and display rays in Petrel RTI using various different methods. All the different methods of ray manipulation such as ray shooting, two-points ray tracing, offset ray tracing and opening angle ray shooting are included in this Petrel RTI online training course. Completing this Petrel RTI course, trainees will have the requisite expertise of creating synthetic datasets, illumination maps and also validate models with the help of checkshot ray shooting and be able to estimate survey acquisition parameters. To successfully complete this course it is advised that the trainees have familiarity with the key concepts of seismic survey design, acquisition and processing methodologies.
