Curtin Reservoir Geophysics Consortium

gurevichCurtin Reservoir Geophysics Consortium (CRGC) is a partnership between industry and academia. CRGC is undertaking research into acquisition, processing and quantitative interpretation of geophysical data with an emphasis on Australian petroleum exploration and production problems.

The CRGC mission is to conduct geophysical research and develop new technologies for the benefit of the petroleum industry, and to train students in geophysical methods and research relevant to the needs of our sponsors.

The research is structured around the concept of improved seismic imaging of reservoirs, methods of signal analysis which will enhance the data processing of existing data, the potential offered using multi-component processing to understand the effects of anisotropy, and obtaining a comprehensive knowledge of the effects variations in rock physics have on transmitted and reflected seismic energy.

CRGC research project areas

  • Theoretical and experimental rock physics
