The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) EVOLVE program is a noncompetitive hands-on program that exposes students to real-world projects which require integration of seismic, wireline, core, production, and other relevant data. The data analyzed is within the context of exploration, reservoir appraisal, field development planning, and production enhancement scenarios. This year, UL Lafayette graduate students have been selected to participate in the EVOLVE program starting mid-February to May, their dataset will be from Northland Basin in New Zealand. The UL Lafayette team will be given access to the iEnergy and the Halliburton Landmark DecisionSpace Platform. EVOLVE participants are encouraged to collaborate with other teams and ask questions to industry mentors so as to make the most out of the program. In the spirit of collaboration, a graduate student from the University of Arkansas will collaborate with the UL Lafayette team via the cloud based DecisionSpace platform to analyze the Northland Basin data. At the end of the EVOLVE program, the participating teams will give technical presentations of their projects to an executive committee then present at the SEG annual meeting in September 2019 at San Antonio.
