AAPG-SEG Joint Talk by Dr. Krzysztof M. Wojcik

Dr. Krzysztof Wojcik, an AAPG Distinguished Lecturer, visited the EAS Department on November 13th, 2015, and gave a talk to the AAPG Wildcatters and SEG Wavelets members.

Title: Bright spots, dim spots: geologic controls of rock properties and AvO response in the Niger Delta basin

Room: SR1-634
Date: Friday, Nov 13, 2015
Time: 1:00-2:00 PM

Krzysztof M. (Chris) Wojcik currently holds a position of Geophysical/QI Advisor with Deepwater Exploration in Shell Americas in Houston. He earned MSc degree in Geology from the Warsaw University and PhD in Sedimentary Petrology from the University of Kansas.
Chris specializes in application of Quantitative Interpretation (QI) technologies in conventional exploration and is one of Shell’s global experts in the area of DHI assessment and integration with prospect risking. He had several exploration and technology assignments in Gulf of Mexico, Angola, Nigeria, Norway, Brazil, Guyanas and worked in many other deepwater basins. Chris was involved in a number of Shell’s discoveries over the last two decades and his principal interest is detection of hydrocarbons with seismic methods. His areas of interest include the following:
- Geologic controls on elastic rock properties and AvO response
- Integration of geology and geophysics into scenario-based predictive workflows
- Multi-attribute interpretation and DHI detection with 3D seismic data
- Probabilistic assessment of exploration risks with seismic methods
Chris is also involved in teaching and coaching of new generations of explorers and geoscientists.
