Western Profile

Western Profile was the employee magazine of Western Geophysical from the 1950s to 2000, when the company became part of Schlumberger and was renamed WesternGeco.

Western Profile

Western Profile chronicles not only the development of geophysical technology, but also tells the personal and timeless stories of geophysicists, mechanics, surveyors, land and marine personnel, administrators, safety professionals, engineers and the many other skillsets required in the ever-changing search for hydrocarbons.

The stories are told through the lens of Western Geophysical, but provide a snapshot of the industry as a whole. They all show the pride, effort and can-do spirit of Western Geophysical employees.
 
The Western Profile historical archive came to live on the SEG website through a collaboration of interested parties. Gary Jones had the idea of preserving such history for coming generations. Rhonda Boone, long-time managing editor of Western Profile and today a communications consultant to Schlumberger, provided him with a complete set of bound magazines. Richard White, Jeff Springmeyer, and Jones underwrote the scanning of the entire collection under the guidance of Mike Forrest and Bill Barkhouse of SEG, who recognized the value of this archive and were instrumental in seeing the project come to fruition.

Thanks also to the SEG staff, Ted Bakamjian, Katie Burk, and Isaac Farley, for making this idea a reality and to Schlumberger, who kindly gave permission to publish the archives on the web.
