b'PeopleNewsIn 1990 Brian joined Schlumberger-Doll Research where he led the Deep Electromagnetics research program, involving theoretical and experimental investigations of new borehole electromagnetic and electrical techniques, with an emphasis on multi-scale measurements of petrophysical and reservoir properties. Fundamental to these studies was the integration of geophysical, geological and engineering data, and large-scale computer modelling of complex, realistic geological sequences. During his time in the US, Brian also took on university Adjunct Professor teaching and post-grad student supervision.He led the team that developed a new generation of deep-imaging electromagnetic tools for the oil well environment, based on a three-component digital cross-well system capable of generating accurate 2-D images of reservoirs between boreholes separated by several hundred metres, operating at depths to 3000 m and at temperatures to 125 C. He also helped develop the next generation of monitoring technology using instrumented oilfields.Schlumberger Doll Field Research TEM survey, North America During the period of Brians commercial Brian completed his doctoral studiesBrian was awarded ARCOs highestresearch in North America, he authored at Macquarie University in 1980 andtechnical award, the Outstanding11 patents covering some highly was awarded a PhD for an outstandingTechnical Achievement Award ininnovative applications of transient Thesis The application of the transientResearch, for development of theelectromagnetics including:electromagnetic method in AustralianTransient Electromagnetic ProbingMethods and apparatus for conditions: field examples and model(TEMP) corrosion detection technique. dynamically estimating the location of studies, which still has relevance to todays exploration geophysicists.Brians international geoscience and leadership roles began in the USA in 1980, when he joined Exploration Data Consultants in Denver as Senior Geophysicist and in 1981, he moved to California to join Electromagnetic Surveys Inc. as Vice President and Director.In 1984 he joined the ARCO Oil and Gas Research Center in Texas as Senior Principal Research Geophysicist. While at ARCO, he developed a new non-destructive testing technology for oil pipelines. The technique is based on focussed electromagnetic antenna arrays and is capable of measurement of metallic wall thickness to an accuracy of 0.1 mm through variable-thickness insulation and metallic cladding. The method was commercialised by a large multinational engineering organisation and is now used worldwide. In 1989Ground TEM survey using SIROTEM, Alaska USAAPRIL 2020 PREVIEW 10'
