ASC Advances Geophysics with SEG Participation


SEG 2013

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) will be holding its International Exposition and 83rd Annual Meeting in Houston September 22-27 in Houston and Aramco Services Company (ASC) is making significant contributions to this industry conference.

ASC professionals and professionals from its parent company, Saudi Aramco, will be contributing more than a dozen papers to the technical sessions. The 2013 SEG Distinguished Achievement Award is being given to Saudi Aramco’s EXPEC ARC Geophysics Technology.

Closer to home, ASC can claim the honor of another significant SEG award, Best Paper in the Leading Edge 2012. This award is being given to ASC Research & Development Geophysicist Yang Zhao, who along with his co-author Vladimir Grechka , published the paper “Microseismic Interferometry” in SEG’s journal The Leading Edge last year. The paper was selected by the journal’s editorial board for its interest, form, readability and potential for the advancement of the geophysical profession.

With more than 33,000 members in 138 countries, SEG’s monthly journal is highly-respected as an authoritative source for a wide range of geoscience papers.

Tim Keho, Geophysics Technology, ASC Research & Development, says, “We certainly will have a high profile at SEG, and will continue our tradition of leadership in the area of applied geophysical research.”

Terry Hagiwara, petroleum engineering consultant, ASC Upstream Group, will be presenting two papers during SEG. Hagiwara is internationally recognized for his expertise in tool development and log interpretation methods and hold patents on new tool concepts, data processing, log interpretation, and reservoir characterization methods.

He will be presenting the paper Interferometric Processing to Look-ahead Bed Boundary and Measure Distance and Resistivity. This paper discusses the impact of the change of electric conductivity ahead of the drill bit and how this change or signal processing method can be extrapolated to detect changes in geological formations.

Hagiwara will also present the paper Sea Bed Logging: Data Analysis with Constant Transmitter-Receiver Offsets. While the electromagnetic method discussed in this paper is not new, the technique of rearranging the data to effectively predict the properties of the underground formations is new. This new data technique being explored by Hagiwara is promising in terms of helping to advance the identification of hydrocarbon layers.

The SEG conference will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center. To learn more visit the website at:
