Brazilian Geophysical Society (SBGf), supported by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and  the Latin American Geophysical Union (ULG) are organizing in 2010 a Forum to focus discussions on the application of non-seismic methods for Oil and Gas Exploration.

Modern geophysics was born with non-seismic methods when Conrad Schlumberger conceived the revolutionary idea of using electrical measurements to map subsurface rock bodies in 1912.

Almost 100 years later non-seismic methods are still revolutionizing the geophysical world with new ideas and methods to help understand and explore the Earth.

Today, the oil industry emphasizes the use of geophysical techniques that have the least environmental impact.  Also, as the large reserves are harder to find and produce, the industry looks for new technologies that can provide crucial information for the exploration and production of these areas in an efficient and more cost-effective way.

We invite examples from offshore and onshore applications of non-seismic methods from South America, Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, Middle East, Russia and others.

The Organizing Committee expects to receive 150 delegates from Brazil and abroad.

Technical program includes:

Electromagnetic Methods;

Potential Fields Methods;

Borehole Geophysics.
