Data Analytics
QI for Engineers
Featuring: Laurie Weston P.Geo.
President, Sound QI Solutions Ltd.
Description:
QI stands for Quantitative Interpretation, relating primarily to the analysis and interpretation of seismic data. From the perspective of an engineer, seismic data may seem remote and unfamiliar; maybe even irrelevant. However, it is a source of very detailed information about the reservoir that can contribute to a more complete understanding of reservoir properties and, ultimately, performance.
