Dr Fred Aminzadeh addresses The Petroleum Technology Forum on January 10th at the Long Beach Petroleum Club
January 10, 2012
As improved recovery from old reservoirs and effective production from new reservoirs gain importance, monitoring changes in the reservoirs and producing from them in an optimum manner becomes crucial. Geophysical data have proven to be an important tool for obtaining information about the reservoir properties away from the existing wells.

Imaging the Earth's near surface: The why and how of applied geophysics for 21st century
November 07, 2011
The top few kilometers of the Earth’s surface are of extreme importance to our society. This near-surface region houses mineral and hydrocarbon wealth that are crucial for industrialized development, contains water needed for life, and is an environment with which we must interact to build our infrastructure. Substantial insight about the structure and composition of this region can be gleaned by determining its physical properties
Practical Seismic Petrophysics: The Effective Use of Log Data for Seismic Analysis
October 27, 2011
The conditioning and analysis of log data for quantitative seismic interpretation is often simply categorized as “rock physics.” Unfortunately, rock physics workflows often overlook or oversimplify the proper editing and interpretation of log data, the result of which can be unrealistic expectations and interpretations of seismic amplitude responses.
