The Ikon Science team will be out in force at this year's EAGE in Paris. You will find the team showcasing the latest creative subsurface solutions and value-adding technology on booth 340

Meet Mark Bashforth, Ikon's new CEOYou may already know Mark from his past roles in the industry's reservoir characterisation sector, but do come and say hello and he'll tell you why he thinks Ikon Science is going to be his favourite career placement to date. 

We are involved in 4 technical papers.

  1. Full Waveform Inversion for Reservoir Characterization - A Synthetic Study - Ehsan Naeini (Ikon Science), Nishant Kamath, Ilya Tsvankin (Colorado School of Mines) and Tariq Alkhalifah (KAUST)
    • Presentation details: Weds 14th June at 2:45pm in Room B3

And chairing two sessions:

  • Seismic Processing A - Tuesday 13th June from 8:30-12:10pm - ePosters 7 - Dr Ehsan Naeini
  •  Geopressure - Wednesday 14th June from 8:30-10am - ePosters 9 - Dr Alex Edwards


  • RokDoc 6.4.3 release - See for yourself the enhanced efficiency, usability and user experience, particularly for well data loading, manipulation and viewing of log data and attributes. We have been streamlining workflows and implementing many user requested enhancements. 
  • Preview RokDoc Ji-Fi's ever increasing capabilities and achievements* - New Scenario and IQP stochastic realisation capabilities, and many more successful case histories.
  • Find out just how easy it is to use the RokDoc External Interface to further enhance and customise your own tools and workflows in RokDoc.  
  • Cutting edge WellTie technology, with the RokDoc Advanced WellTie module, delivering increased reservoir value from broadband and conventional seismic data.
  • The RokDoc Interconnector allows the easy movement of data between RokDoc and Petrel; Analyse in RokDoc, then return results to Petrel. Also, SLB will be showing their updated Petrel* QI module, which includes Ikon's 2D forward modelling and inversion workflows.
  • Our team of technical experts are on hand to discuss any of your subsurface challenges or RokDoc queries throughout the show.

And lots more, so we are not to be missed at this year's EAGE!
