The optimal interpreter of a seismic data volume is a petroleum geologist that is capable of integrating subsurface geologic data, regional stratigraphy, and geophysical interpretation together in a thorough review of an area. Our approach is to utilize our considerable experience in interpretation to efficiently delineate a prospective target, while special geophysical tasks - such as 3D project design and implementation, and AVO work - will be contracted out to a specialist within our network of geophysical consultants.

We load all 2D and 3D projects into our workstations using IHS Markit's 2D3DPak Core Geophysics software (including the VuPak, GeoSyn 1D & 2D and the Rock Solid Attributes (RSA) Modules), performing all interpretation in-house; we are also cross-disciplined in the use of Landmark's interpretive software. Our workstation is powerful enough to efficiently load and interpret even the largest 3D mega-survey.  In our role as Geophysical Data Manager for Vision's Exploration Program, we exercise special care in the maintenance of our license agreements, field and final tapes/discs, and support data.  Data and interpretations are easily shared with clients via DropBox or Hightail.

We have earned a reputation for accurate seismic interpretation and innovative prospect generation. While we admire, respect and learn from the work of our predecessors, we will not hesitate to challenge any pre-conceived notions that might have caused a potentially lucrative seismic play to have gone unnoticed. Our principal goal is to employ seismic data as a useful tool in the development of a prospect. Key "show wells" - noteworthy for their shows of oil and/or gas in the target reservoir - are also very important. The optimal seismic prospect is one that combines good 3D data with abundant well control and one or several key show wells.
