About the Authors
  • This book introduces geophysicists and geologists to the technique of interpreting 3-D seismic data. The topics it covers include basic structural interpretation and map-making; the use of 3-D visualization methods; interpretation of seismic amplitudes; the generation and use of AVO and acoustic impedance datasets; and time-lapse seismic mapping. Written by professional geophysicists with many years of working experience in the oil industry, the book will be indispensable for graduate students, researchers, and new entrants into the petroleum industry.

    • Written by industry professionals with many years' experience of working with seismic data
    • Suitable for advanced university courses as well as petroleum industry professionals wishing to learn about 3-D seismic interpretation
    • Includes an appendix with fifteen pages of new material to bring this paperback edition fully up to date

    Reviews & endorsements

    'I found this book very easy to read. Complex concepts are clearly explained ... for a comprehensive guide to getting the most out of seismic data it has few competitors.' Geological Magazine

    "This reasonably priced book is excellent for petroleum geoscientists wishing to learn 3-D seismic technology, a key tool for mapping subsurface reservoir quality and hydrocarbon distribution. Mathematics are minimal but sufficient. I strongly recommend it to all librarians, academics, students and professionals." AAPG Bulletin B.K. Sahu, Indian Institute of Technology

    "...easy to read, concise, and well organized, written in a simple language and perfectly illustrated with color plates." Pure and Applied Geophysics

    M. Bacon, Petro-Canada UK
    Mike Bacon was awarded a PhD in geophysics from the University of Cambridge before becoming a Principal Scientific Officer at the Institute of Geological Sciences in Edinburgh (now the British Geological Survey). After working as a lecturer in the Geology Department of the University of Accra, Ghana, he took a position with Shell UK where he worked for 19 years as a seismic interpreter and as team leader in seismic special studies. He now works for Petro-Canada UK as a geophysical advisor. Dr Bacon is a co-author of Introduction to Seismic Interpretation by McQuillin et al (1979) and is a member of the editorial board of the petroleum industry magazine First Break. He is a Fellow of the Geological Society and a member of the EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers).

    R. Simm, Rock Physics Associates Ltd
    Rob Simm is a geophysicist with 16 years experience in the oil and gas industry and a specialist in the rock physics interpretation of seismic data in both exploration and production. After gaining an MSc and PhD in marine geology at University College London, the early part of his career was spent with Britoil plc and Tricentrol plc as a seismic interpreter. He subsequently took a position at Enterprise Oil and progressed from North Sea exploration to production and equity determination, prior to becoming an internal consultant to asset teams and management. Since 1999 Dr Simm has provided independent consultancy and training services to numerous independent and multi-national oil companies through his company Rock Physics Associates Ltd.

    T. Redshaw, BP Exploration
    Terry Redshaw gained a PhD in numerical analysis from the University of Wales before becoming a Geophysical Researcher with Western Geophysical. Since 1985 he has been employed by BP in a variety of roles. These have included research into imaging and inversion algorithms, as well as leading a team supplying BP's worldwide assets with support in the areas of seismic modelling, rock properties, AVO and seismic inversion. Dr Redshaw works at present in BP's Exploration Excellence team, which helps operating units to carry out the technical work needed to evaluate oil prospects and decide whether to drill them or not.
