 Ian Jack1

(1) BP, London, United Kingdom

 It is not difficult to extrapolate current trends and R&D programs into the future. The main areas of development will be:

-         Speed of manipulation and analysis

-         HSE awareness

-         Visualisation, & interpretation methodology

-         Data management (Storage, Transmission, Retrieval, Mining)

-         Land seismic catches up with marine

-         Step function improvement in seismic resolution

-         Visibility on pressure and fluid changes in the reservoir

-         An integrated, automated environment - the “e-Field”

The paper will cover all of these and will concentrate on the last three items.
