PESA SA/NT Branch: May Luncheon with Rob Kirk

$5.00 – $70.00

Guest Speaker(s): Rob Kirk

Rob Kirk is a consultant living at Yankalilla. He has over 40 years of seismic and well interpretation experience and spent some 30 years with SA Oil and Gas, Occidental, BHP and Woodside living in Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, London, Bogota, Colombia and Bakersfield, California, with the remainder consulting from Tasmania and South Australia. He has worked in around 20 countries in some 40 different basins in many different geological environments.

Rob specializes in seismic stratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy. He runs a 1 week Operational Sequence Stratigraphy course around the world.


PESA SA/NT AGM to be held at this luncheon

The luncheon will kick off with a short AGM, where the nominations for new committee members and for the branch Vice President role will be voted on.

If you would like to nominate yourself or a colleague for one of these roles, please email before C.O.B. Tuesday, 25th May.


Talk Title:

Automatic Seismic Facies Mapping – why bother with waveforms?


This talk will look at getting more geology from the geophysics, but via automated software and not “manually”. We will wander (and wonder?) from normal amplitude extractions to full waveform seismic facies mapping based on algorithms from the Human Genome Project, via Principle Component Analyses-with nary an equation! Some case history waveform facies will be examined over Gorgon.

Event Details:

Meet in Henry’s Bar at Ayers house at 12pm for a 12:30pm luncheon and talk in the Ballroom. A two course meal and alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages will be included.

Bookings close Monday 24th May at 5pm. Any late bookings will incur an additional $10 fee. Strictly no walk-ins
