After years of successful exploration with 2-D seismic coverage, low-fold 3-D seismic programs are helping to cut costs in the search for overlooked gas traps in some areas in Montana.

Cattle actually have been known to chew up any unburied or exposed cable left on the ground. It’s a real and serious problem for the seismic acquisition sector.

Geophysical contractors sometimes find themselves in the darndest situations. Uganda was faced with the challenge to acquire a seismic survey across a large part of a water body for its Canada-based client Heritage Oil Corp.

During a luncheon talk at the 2006 AAPG Annual Convention in Houston, speaker Peter Dea predicted the Rocky Mountains would become the kingpin of domestic natural gas production owing principally to unconventional reservoir development.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
