EAGE Annual Conference & Exhibition Online

December 8-11, 2020 | Virtual

The 2020 Annual Conference Online will focus on leveraging the strength of our global community to chart new paths for sustainable energy development and continued interest in geosciences. Join us as we deliver the latest scientific and technological advances shaping the industry. 

Visit with our experts on the virtual ION stand during the online exhibition opening hours:

Tuesday 15:00 – 18:00 CET
Wednesday 13:00 – 18:00 CET
Thursday 13:00 – 18:00 CET
Friday 13:00 – 18:00 CET

ION has built on the deep geological knowledge and successes of its SPAN™ programs to create 3D products unparalleled in image quality, such as the Mid North Sea High 3D and Picanha 3D programs. Using the latest geophysical techniques and geological understanding, ION’s 3D programs are changing the multi-client landscape and reducing time to first oil.

Our Imaging & Reservoir Services team combines our comprehensive suite of leading edge velocity modeling and imaging technologies with our extensive global experience to deliver enhanced subsurface images. We have one of the industry’s most experienced teams of geoscience professionals, who collaborate with clients to solve their most difficult imaging challenges.

ION experts will be available to discuss new developments in the software optimization solutions, including a preview of the MESA® SimSurvey™ towed streamer functionality. Visit ION’s stand to view case studies of how Marlin optimizes port to platform logistics ‒ giving greater control and transparency in the management of offshore operations through a common operational picture. ION’s remote service solutions experts will demonstrate how customers can increase operational efficiency by managing their offshore operations remotely.

ION is an established leader in innovative and high-end technologies in the marine geophysical industry. SailWing™, our innovative foil-based marine diverter, has recently demonstrated a step change in 4D source repeatability ‒ the latest sea trials will be presented during the event. Visit our stand to learn about ION’s range of integrated, industry leading technologies for seismic source and to hear about our marine technology development plans.

Ian F. Jones ‒ Winner of the Nigel Anstey Award 2020

For the paper “Tutorial: the mechanics of waveform inversion”, First Break, Volume 37, No 5, May 2019. Full waveform inversion (FWI) methods are becoming widely used to provide high resolution velocity models for use in migrating data from complex regions, and constraining impedance inversions. This paper is pitched perfectly and appeals to a range of readers, from students entering FWI and wanting to understand the basics, to industry professionals looking for a clear discussion of the subject. The detailed explanation of how each step of the FWI process is carried out is particularly helpful. The excellent list of references provided allows readers to delve further into the subject. Ian Jones’ paper provides an exceptionally well explained overview of the FWI method, and is already being used widely as a go-to reference on the subject.
