The aim of these web pages is to provide a review of the
sort of work that I do in a presentation that is more informative and accessible
than the traditional paper CV.

Key Technical Expertise
Over 35 years of solid, all round experience as an interpretation geophysicist.I have up to date
working experience with North Sea operators which includes field development drilling and prospect generation. I have a practical
understanding of the up-to-date seismic interpretation technologies and rock physics techniques.
Expertise with the latest visualisation and interpretation
software, Petrel, Paleoscan and RocDoc1D2D and also LandMark Decision Space and Kingdom 2d/3dPAK.
Specialist depth conversion experience, Petrel and Velocity Manager depth conversion software user,
analysis using spreadsheets.
Equity determination experience both as Independent Expert and as Oil Company
Geophysical Committee representative.
Seismic processing supervisor, testing and data enhancement.
Past lecturer for Oxford Brookes University’s Petroleum Geology M.Sc. course.Experienced seismic workstation instructor.
Past Project Summary
Development Geophysicist for
The Blackbird and Ettrick fields. Providing all geophysical support for the
Reservoir Simulation and Geological modelling teams and economic assessment of
near field potential as the fields approach CoP. A member of the subsurface
team that drilled the final, successful producer well on the Blackbird field.
Review of the mature Annabel and Audrey Fields.
A depth image error caused by a velocity anomaly associated with a 3km high
wall of Permian Salt was recognised and corrected using the latest Reverse Time
Migration Technology. The correction to the image revealed a drillable target (See
Seismic mapping and regional compilation for
Pre-stack Depth Migration velocity modelling.10 overlapping 3D surveys were interpreted and the horizons were
combined to give highly accurate, wavelet hugging, regional horizons suitable
for velocity estimation via seismic tomography. The project
provided a valuable database for staff geophysicists.
considerably reduced the time taken to complete detailed prospect evaluation.
