PESA WA Technical Christmas lunch talk – Ian Longley

Thursday, 16 December, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm (Australia/Perth time)

$49.00 – $109.00

Guest Speaker(s): Ian Longley

Ian Longley is a regional petroleum geologist with 34 years of experience who has worked for Lasmo, Woodside, Shell and Oil Search in various locations around the planet in junior and executive exploration roles. He has specialised in the plate tectonic evolution, regional petroleum geology, play and prospect analysis and the hunt for new exploration opportunities in the Australasian region. He currently runs the industry training course on the Petroleum Geology of SE Asia ( and co-presents the Petroleum Geology of the North West Shelf course ( He has published extensively on the regional petroleum geology and, after deciding senior management is not for him, is currently enjoying working on his hobbies (now businesses) looking at real geology and not doing budgets, nor safety reviews, nor any management arse-covering pointless activities, nor attending endless meaningless meetings where time frequently stops. He is also joint developer and joint owner of the Player ArcGIS play analysis software ( which is now used by 30+ international E&P exploration companies around the world. He lives in Perth, Australia where he has survived one shark attack and three forms of cancer and is now an increasingly average surfer who with increasing girth and added floatation is evolving into a slower ocean swimmer and hence now he is an even easier meal for the local sharks. His optimistic nature with regards to risk management strategies is thus self-evident in both his personal and professional activities where he believes that life is too short to take political correctness and established exploration paradigms too seriously and that everyone should enjoy a good laugh and a beer every now and then.
