Dr Jeremy Neep - Principal Geoscientist
Jeremy Neep is a geophysicist with over 20 years’ experience in geophysics and geoscience and joined Ikon Science in August 2014 as Principal Geoscientist. Jeremy is responsible for delivering and peer reviewing Joint Impedance and Facies Inversion (Ji-Fi) projects and acts as peer reviewer to the QI team (EAME) and other projects worldwide. Jeremy assists with deploying new R&D technologies and technical QC of software improvements and is the technical processing lead for the Ikon-Petrotrace JV.
Prior to joining Ikon, Jeremy worked for 17 years at BP, leading the processing QC on external contractor projects ranging from worldwide exploration processing, through to detailed PreSDM velocity model building and 4D processing projects for all the producing Azerbaijan fields. He also worked extensively in geophysical analysis both in internal R&D and in projects on AVO inversion/reservoir characterisation from frontier exploration through to producing fields. He published conference papers on AVO angle analysis on dipping beds, spectral blueing, time-variant coloured inversion, AVO inversion bench marking and OBS imaging. Jeremy was the lead instructor within BP for advanced courses on wavelet estimation and seismic inversion, as well as teaching courses on seismic resolution, seismic net-pay and borehole geophysics. Jeremy also mentored and coaching many geophysicists across the company. Prior to BP, Jeremy was a Research Associate at Imperial College working on seismic attenuation and wavelet estimation.
Jeremy has a BSc in Physics from the University of York, an MSc in Applied Geophysics from the University of Birmingham and a PhD in Geophysics from Imperial College London.
