The 2020 CSEG Symposium is our ninth annual event that showcases the CSEG's best speakers, with talks highlighting our mission to estimate the truth about the earth in a case study format. This year the Symposium features the theme of the Hunt for value and honours Lee Hunt.

Symposium Overview

Due to COVID-19 concerns the committee is moving to an online format with morning sessions on September 15th and 16th. All speakers are the same and we look forward to a valuable and interactive symposium.

The format is a two-day, morning session online event. In order to attract case studies, there will be no published papers related to the work shown. Featured speakers will present by invitation only. We are modifying the format to make it interactive and allow additional time for questions and discussion. Registration rates have been significantly reduced.

Each year the Symposium will honour one or more notable CSEG members, and the themes of the talks presented will relate to the work of the Honouree(s). In 2020, the Symposium will feature the theme of the Hunt for value and honours Lee Hunt. .

A highlight of the lunch will be the annual CSEG awards ceremony, with the outstanding achievements of the society's members honoured. Tickets for the lunch only will also be available.

The 2020 CSEG Symposium promises to be a highlight of the year, and a not-to-miss event for CSEG members!

Lee has drilled over 350 wells in most of the play types within the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. His work has focused on performing the quantitative analysis of a variety of geophysical technologies including: multiple attenuation, resolution enhancement, depth and geo-hazard predictions, stress estimation, AVO, AVAz, VVAz, curvature, prediction of fluid, lithology, porosity and fracture treatment production characteristics... read more.
