Integrated Geoscience Workshop for Offshore Facilities

Posted on

Offshore fields are developed by costly facilities and pipelines over large areas. Geohazards risk assessment, reliable site selection and safe installation and operation of seafloor facilitates all require shallow subsurface data. Integrated geosciences studies aim to provide economic acquisition and interpretation of geophysical and subsurface geotechnical data.

Event details

Register for this one-day workshop at the Curtin University Law School on Thurs 26 September 2019 to gain an understanding of the basics of geological, geophysical and geotechnical investigations.

Thursday 26 September 2019
9.15am to 3.30pm
Curtin University Law School
57 Murray Street, Perth, WA
$350 for General Public
$50 for Academics
$20 for Students
Curtin Perth Campus


This 1-day workshop delivers a practical understanding of the basics of geological, geophysical and geotechnical investigations, with an emphasis on efficiently data collection and interpretations. This will be explained using some practical cases from real projects where integrated studies cover a large area in deep water developments. Hence, this workshop intends to increase the relevant knowledge amongst subsea graduates or engineers.
