For the last years, my position as Reservoir Geophysics Specialist has been ideal for exploring my ideas and passion in Reservoir Geophysics. I have used Hampson-Russell, Jason, RokDoc, Petrel and other software for most of the projects at UTC. Most of my projects include Quantitative Seismic Interpretation work such as Rock Physics Analysis & Modeling, AVO analysis, and seismic attribute analysis.

Thus, Pertamina has to maximize its existing fields production – most of them are mature fields. Given the rapid advances in exploration and...
