Expert provides subsurface stratigraphic and structural maps, based upon interpretation of geophysical data (primarily seismic data) as appropriate to the project. When and where necessary, he integrates surface geological data into the prospect analysis.

He has a Bachelor's Degree in Geology and 35 years of experience in that field. He is able to integrate all aspects and concepts of geology into a project, as needed. He maintains a library of current research and updates it as concepts change.

Expert has a Bachelor's Degree and 35 years of experience in Geophysics. He has specialized in Petroleum Geophysics, primarily focusing on exploration seismology and seismic interpretation. He has achieved Certified Petroleum Geophysicist through the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, and is an active member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

Expert is able to undertake surface geologic mapping, as required, and as a petroleum explorationist, has specialized in 'soft rock' related studies. He often creates subsurface maps for petroleum exploration. Field work is second nature to all explorationists.

As related to petroleum exploration, Expert is prepared to study a basin for suitability as an exploration target, integrating tectonics and organic sourcing for petroleum potential. Basin analysis requires a thorough understanding of depositional environments and the implications of sediment source (and probable changes in sources) through time.

Expert is a Certified Petroleum Geophysicist through the American Association of Petroleum Geologists; seismic interpretation is his primary exploration tool. He can design and execute a survey program, and interpret the data to locate potential exploration targets, integrating the geological parameters needed to increase success rates.
