Equipoise Software are the technical wizards behind Velit – an excellent Depth Conversion tool which makes all manner of depth conversions easy and stress free thanks to it’s user-friendly interface as well as the very highly rated Velit Wizard. Equipoise Software are also credited with the creation of InSeis – a Seismic Inversion tool which is starting to find ground within programs such as Kingdom 2015 and Petrel Q1 2016.

Given the fact that Velit is a very viable program in itself, and InSeis is starting to follow in its footsteps (albeit as an add-on, but a very much needed one) Equipoise Software offer varying training courses within their offices in London in order to meet the needs of geologists, and geoscientists which wish to utilise these amazing pieces of software.

Equipoise Software’s Depth Conversion Training Course in Velit offers a truly comprehensive look at Velit as well as education up to an advanced level while under supervision from Equipoise Software’s own developers. You’ll be completing objectives with this program under the watch of individuals which have actually built the program, and are more than outfitted to answer any questions that you may have as you work.

On Day 1 of this 3 day course, you’ll load data into a model from a Petrel project, associate interpretation to formation tops using layer definition, use curve fitting method to determine parameterised depth conversion methods, remove residual depth error by back interpolation to well formation tops, as well as import and calibrate stacking velocities to real well velocity for usage within depth conversion.

Day 2 will involve using numerical optimisation to determine best parameters for time depth functions, as well as generation of SEG Y velocity volume from the model you’ve developed throughout day 1, as well as construct, manipulate and edit such with the workflow system. You’ll convert the depth of more complex profiles than you have in day 1 (in order to more accurately convert all situations such as channels, diapirs, reverse faults, and compensate for shallow gas)

Day 2 will also involve you getting a sound introduction toward risk reduction using stochastic modelling, as well as generate high definition velocity volume.

Day 3 will have you use the Petrel link to load data into an existing model, as well as instance multiple realisations of depth conversion. You’ll analyse volumetric possibilities, and assess spill-point determination. Finally, you’ll cover sensitivity analysis to better determine the levers for your depth conversion.
