• Seismic and Geologic Interpretation (Conventional and Quantitative)
  • Prospect screening
  • Acoustic Impedance inversion (conventional and advanced)
  • Simultaneous (AVO) Inversion
  • Seismic Attributes analysis
  • Fault and fracture detection 
  • Seismic Reservoir Characterization: Multi-discipline fully-integrated Field Studies
  • Mentoring in utilization of advanced Inversion and Attributes data and quantitative interpretation team building.

Over 40 years of foreign and domestic oil and gas exploration experience with primary focus on risk reduction through accurate interpretation and prospect evaluation.  Consult with companies to improve economic effectiveness of seismic information by application of comprehensive suites of mapping, inversion and attributes software. The objective is to obtain maximum benefit from the existing corporate database for prospect and play generation by producing and interpreting data volumes with enhanced potential for structural, stratigraphic, and rock and fluid properties evaluation.
