Episode 149: How to get the most from any seismic investment


Peter Rowbotham discusses his paper, "Investment in North Sea seismic leading to new opportunities," from the April issue of The Leading Edge.

Peter makes the case for why it's wise to invest in seismic data. He also shares why the beginning of a project is the most important and the context where seismic projects deliver the most value. Additionally, he answers the questions:

  • How does he approach deciding whether to acquire a new 3D seismic survey or seek to reprocess legacy 3D surveys for a particular area?
  • Why does he believe the beginning of a project is the most important?
  • During the processing phase, why does he advocate for obtaining interim volumes at every opportunity?


Peter Rowbotham is a Senior Geophysical Advisor, Geoscience Lead (Forties) at Apache. He also serves as Publications Officer/Board Member at the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE).
