Bridgeporth Featured in “Seismic Profile” Magazine

Bridgeporth was featured in the Winter 2013, Issue 6 of “Seismic Profile Magazine.” “A True Pioneer of Arctic Survey” is an article written by Rachel Braun about an Arctic expedition led by Tom Austin, the President and founder of Austin Exploration, in the late 1970’s. It highlights how far technology has progressed in the last 40 years alone, as he had to lead survey teams in the winter darkness without the aid of GPS. Tom is legendary in the industry for that trip–he identified 17 anticlines that were so big they didn’t know if they were looking at real or regional data. The second article, “Hunting for Elephants: Probabilistic Models of Risk Analysis and Uncertainty in Petroleum Exploration,” also by Rachel Braun, is an investigation on how oil and seismic companies use probability methods to assess prospects. With only 1…
