Abstract

The Allied Geophysics Laboratories (AGL) at the University of Houston organized a listening tour for the geophysics students on their job prospects. The jobs are mostly in oil and gas industry as seismic interpreters. As interpreters, the students need to understand the effects that acquisition and processing have on data volumes to be interpreted. They must be able to use modern structural, sedimentological, and sequence-stratigraphical methodologies. As geophysicists, they also need to have computer and workstation skills and the knowledge of the fundamentals of petroleum engineering and petroleum economics.
