Quantitative Interpretation is really quite interesting

Many memorable events occurred in 1930, for instance GSI (aka Geophysical Service Inc.) was founded by J Clarence Karcher and Eugene McDermott. In the 1950’s GSI was probably the largest geophysical company in the world. In subsequent decades geophysical innovations have radically changed the industry from the embryonic business of 1930 beyond all imagination. Many of our colleagues around the world have started (and finished) careers in GSI or subsequent heritage companies and like GSI have grown in knowledge and expertise throughout their careers.

More recently the Geophysics Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB) held an organizing meeting for the forthcoming seminar on Quantitative Interpretation. The seminar will focus on the most recent developments in our science and technology. The SIG digressions were numerous but image my surprise to realise that one of our group was born in that same historic year as GSI. Norman Hempstead a veteran of GSI and an honorary member of the PESGB will celebrate his birthday in early September. Happy Birthday Norman.

Norman is an active member of our small group and like GSI has continuously developed his knowledge and expertise in geophysics, an essential ingredient if you wish to plan on a successful life-time career. Quantitative Interpretation will be the core to future hydrocarbon exploration and development, but the problem for many is that we don’t know what we don’t know. Well you can fix that – come and join us at the seminar on 24th October at the Geological Society, Piccadilly, London.

Register at Ticket sales are well advanced and we anticipate a sell out so do not be disappointed – register soon.
