Speaker: Nick Moldoveanu, Schlumberger

The use of autonomous systems in marine environment in recent years has increased and covers activities from oceanographic studies, environmental awareness, maritime surveillance, defense, and oil and gas. For oil and gas, the current applications are related to meteorological and oceanographic monitoring, hydrocarbon detection and mapping, subsea communication by means of acoustic modems, and localized real-time geomagnetic surveys. In this talk I will focus on seismic acquisition with autonomous marine vehicles towing 3D sensor arrays. I will show results from some of the field experiments and simulation studies that we performed to demonstrate the potential of this new type of seismic acquisition technology.
Speaker Biography: Nick Moldoveanu, Schlumberger
Nick Moldoveanu received MSc degrees in Geophysics from the Oil, Gas and Geology Institute, Romania and in Mathematics 
from University of Bucharest, Faculty of Mathematics.

He started his geophysics career in Romania, and later joined Schlumberger Geco-Prakla in 1989. Nick has been with Schlumberger since then,
involved in geophysical support to operations. Currently Nick is Global Geophysical Advisor for seismic solution design and modeling.

Nick has published more than 890 technical paper, holds 21 US patents, was SEG Honorary lecturer for North America in 2013, 
and was awarded SEG Honorary membership in 2014.
