3D and 2D seismic interpretation plus well tying and geological integration Velocity mapping / depth conversion (geostatistics), plus prospect sizing/risking Seismic attribute analyses (AVO, AI / EI inversion, coherency) Seismic modelling plus seismic processing and imaging experience


Rigorous evaluation of Ghana Tano Basin, contributing to successful Tullow farm-in of high impact blocks Mapped multi-play potential that led to recent successful farmout of high risk / high reward deepwater Cameroon block under difficult force majeure conditions Managed geophysical procedures of a successful SNS field equity redetermination Identified subtle SNS Carboniferous channels leading to successful production well in sweet spot. Regional basin mapping plus PSDM processing led to competitive block capture in licencing round and discovery of large gas field.
