20th Anniversary 3D Seismic Symposium

Presented by The Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists & The Denver Geophysical Society

20/20 3D Vision

February 13, 2014

The 3D Seismic Symposium provides case histories for geophysicists, geologists, landmen and engineers who seek to stay abreast of new 3D technology as applied to petroleum exploration and development.

Date: Thursday, February 13, 2014
Pre-Paid Check In: 7:15am
Kickoff Presentation Begins at 8:00am

This very unfortunate disruption was caused by over-booking of space by the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel and their inability to provide alternative space.  We were unequivocally informed of this breach of our fully executed contract with the Sheraton on January 13, 2014, we immediately proceeded to find reasonably suitable space and amenities for our symposium as near as possible to the previously scheduled date and location.

Onsite registration is dependent on availability.


Luncheon Keynote Speaker - Daniel E. Kelly, Vice President – DJ Basin, Noble Energy

The Big Picture: Doing More with Less
An 1,800 square-mile 3D seismic picture of the company’s assets in the DJ Basin is helping Noble Energy accelerate development and increase recovery while reducing surface and environmental impact. Noble Energy Vice President Dan Kelly will discuss how the company is utilizing seismic to implement Integrated Development Plans that are helping Noble Energy target a five-year compounded annual growth rate in production of more than 20 percent.

Kickoff Speaker - Craig Walters, Director – Wattenberg, Anadarko Petroleum

Social License to Vibe
Mr. Walters will highlight the success of Anadarko’s Wattenberg program and discuss the benefits of 3D seismic in a 40 year old field.  In addition, Mr. Walters will address the challenges and sensitivities of seismic acquisition along the Front Range urban corridor.  The talk will conclude with an overview of the current political and regulatory environment in Colorado, as it pertains to oil and gas development.  Mr. Walters will communicate Anadarko’s stance on the importance of strong stakeholder engagement, environmental & safety excellence, and the need for all industry representatives to become active ambassadors in their communities and social networks.
