A review of geophysical technologies, how they should be deployed and integrated for improved petroleum exploration and production.
Hamish Wilson started his career with BP before forming his own consulting company focusing on exploration strategy and process. Hamish's key specialism is in helping companies develop and implement exploration led growth strategies. He has worked at senior executive level for most of the world's leading exploration led oil companies. Keith Nunn is a geophysicist with over 40 years of experience in oil and gas exploration. He is an independent consultant at Nunnegeo Consulting Ltd, and has worked for a number of independent oil companies and government oil organisations. He worked for BP for 25 years, mainly in technical leadership roles in seismic processing, analysis and acquisition teams, and finished his career as Distinguished Adviser in Geophysics with responsibility for BP's global seismic activities. Prior to joining BP he was a Lecturer in Geophysics at the University of Birmingham for 10 years. His research at that time included topics from shallow reflection seismology to large scale crustal seismic studies. He organised and participated in several crustal seismic projects in the UK and Europe. He has been involved with exploration and production in most of the major petroleum basins of the world. Matt Luheshi is a geoscientist with over 40 years of experience in oil and gas exploration. He works as an independent consultant and has advised a number of major and independent oil companies as well as government oil organisations. He previously worked at BP where his roles included project management and leadership positions exploring new opportunity access, technical evaluations and technology development. His global experience includes many of the major petroleum basins of the world including the Middle East, North-West Europe, North America, North Africa, South East Asia, and Eastern Siberia.
