“Thunder is good, thunder is impressive – but it is lightning that does the work”  Mark Twain

Another week, another great opportunity to hear the latest news and perspectives from 1,000+ veterans, professionals, and students from the geoscience community throughout the Gulf Coast region as we prepare to join them at this year’s GCAGS conference next week (Sept 20-22nd, George R Brown Convention Center, Houston). 

Lightning 1We’re particularly looking forward to working with our friends at Dynamic Measurement LLC, as they demonstrate how lightning databases open new ways to measure and monitor natural resources – an area of work for which they will be accepting the Grover E Murray award  for best published paper of 2014. (“Aquifers, Faults, Subsidence, and Lightning Databases”) .

Be sure to visit with them at booth 435 to learn more about this new and exciting non-invasive technology, and to hear from H. Roice Nelson and Louis Berent as they demonstrate O&G field correlations from lightning attributes, and show how it is possible to map faults using resistivity and permittivity rock property volumes derived from lightning databases.

Sasha at booth - croppedThe GCAGS is also partnering this year with the AAPG-SEG student Expo, and we’re very excited to see our own Sasha Gumprecht present her MSc Thesis on the Tectono-Stratigraphic Evolution of the Centaur 3D Survey, Exmouth Plateau, North West Shelf, Australia during the oral sessions on Monday afternoon.

Her presentation is part of the Global 3D Seismic – GCSSEPM – Session that will be held in room 310 (chaired by Eric Scott of Talisman and Thomas Hearon of ConocoPhillips).  Join us at 4.30pm for what promises to be a very informative presentation.

We hope to see many of you there!
