The New Frontiers of Hydrocarbons Award in the Upstream category went to Johan Olof Anders Robertsson, from the ETH in Zurich, for the research project carried out with Dirk-Jan van Manen (ETH), Ali Özbek, Massimiliano Vassallo and Kemal Özdemir (Schlumberger Research Laboratories).

New seismic technology for hydrocarbon mapping and monitoring


Their research focused on the development of technology for the acquisition and processing of sea prospecting data using acoustic (seismic) methods, which is capable of overcoming the current limits of imaging and characterising subsurface structures, while also respecting the environment. Since seismic prospecting forms the basis of all modern oil exploration activities, improved technology enabling a more accurate reconstruction of underground structures makes the identification of those with greatest oil potential more reliable. One direct consequence is the advantage derived for the technical and economic aspects of oil and gas projects from the earliest stages of their development.
