Honoring Dave Hale
Many seasoned oil finders have on occasion encountered that “a-ha” moment when new seismic data arrives at the workstation and suddenly a clear image of the subsurface geology unlocks new potential and completely changes the game regarding the identification and risking of new drilling prospects. It’s a moment sometimes referred to as “turning on the lights” or “putting on the glasses” when comparing new images with the older legacy seismic data used in the past. The theme of this symposium is titled “Sharper Imaging” and the focus will be to highlight case studies where recent advances in acquisition and processing technology has improved seismic imaging and ultimately our ability to be more predictive and precise in our pursuit to find oil and gas.
The 2018 GSH Symposium will be honoring Dave Hale, one of the pioneers in seismic imaging technology over the past three decades. Dave received the Virgil Kauffman Gold Medal from the Society of Exploration Geophysics for his work on dip-moveout processing of seismic data. He also received SEG's awards for Best Paper in GEOPHYSICS in 1992 (imaging salt with seismic turning waves) and Best Paper Presented at the Annual Meeting in 2002 (atomic meshing of seismic images). Dave was the Fall SEG/AAPG Distinguished Lecturer and also honorary member of the GSH in 2015.
This symposium is geared towards all geologists and geophysicists whether they are new to the industry or in advanced stages of their career. It will be a tremendous opportunity to network within one of the largest local communities of geophysicists in the world - Houston, Texas. The aim is to educate all in the basic and advanced techniques used in seismic acquisition and processing that are changing the game when it comes to seismic imaging in both marine and land environments. It is a great opportunity to for industry professionals to stay as sharp and up-to-date as possible on the latest developments in seismic technology.
