Geoscience Boot Camp
Due to unforeseen developments, EAGE has to postpone the Boot Camp 2013 to 2014. We are sorry or the inconvenience this may cause and we hope to welcome you for the Geoscience Boot Camp in 2014. The Boot Camp 2014 will take place in Emlichheim, Germany spread over two weeks.
After the succesful Boot Camp in 2011 and to address the needs of academia and industry, EAGE is organizing the 2nd edition of the Geoscience Boot Camp! This will take place in Emlichheim, Germany in collaboration with the operator Wintershall.
The duration of the Geoscience Boot Camp 2014 is one week and will be organized for two different groups back to back.
Group 1: 30.03.2014 - 05.04.2014
Group 2: 06.04.2014 - 12.04.2014
What is it?
The goal of the Boot Camp is to provide postgraduate students and young professionals with practical “hands-on” experience in carrying out different aspects of geophysical operations in an active oilfield. The participants will practice the use of different geophysical techniques including reflection and refraction seismic, gravity and ground-penetrating radar. Participants will be divided into teams in order to rotate between ‘hands-on’ tasks of survey installation, data acquisition and quality control, all with a variety of geophysical platforms and technologies. These geophysical observations will be consolidated into an integrated interpretation of the field.
Who should attend?
This boot camp is designed for postgraduate students (PhD and MSc) and young professionals with limited or no experience with geophysical field operations. The boot camp will enable participants to put classroom theory into operational and oil-field practice. It is a great opportunity for those who have not yet been in the field, or wish to have the experience of geophysical data acquisition.
Young professionals with a few years of work experience will learn how to lead teams on the field under supervision of lecturers. They will meet peers from different companies, share knowledge and experience, as well as benefit from networking with colleagues.
How can you get involved?
To grow the project and create a sustainable activity for students and young professionals year after year, EAGE welcomes further support.
EAGE seeks help from experienced professionals for the execution of the Boot Camp by assisting the project team throughout the activities, supervising the participants and contributing their knowledge and experience.
