New Imaging Algorithm
Quickly Clarifies Seismic
HOUSTON-TGS says it has developed
a new imaging approach, dynamic matching full wave inversion (DM FWI), that
uses seismic reflection and refraction information to automatically update velocity
modeling, enabling high-quality images
in geologically complicated areas.
According to the company, DM FWI
delivers a step change in velocity model
quality to facilitate clearer and more geologically consistent depth images. The
inversion-based algorithm can significantly
reduce imaging cycle time and interpretation ambiguity for ocean bottom node
and modern towed streamer surveys, TGS
adds. The company says it is especially
relevant in areas with complex geology
where there are shallow gas anomalies,
such as salt basins.
Amendment Phase I, a joint venture
program with WesternGeco in the U.S.
Gulf of Mexico, is the first project to
utilize TGS' DM FWI technology. TGS
says applying the technique to this sparse
node dataset with ultralong offsets shows
its capability to resolve large velocity
errors and provide significant uplift on
the subsalt image.

how DM FWI was applied to the project,

Basic Energy Pilots Water Handling Automation
FORT WORTH-In partnership with a
major U.S. operator, Basic Energy Services
Inc. has successfully tested an automated
water management solution it presents
as a step-change in efficiency.
The client now can manage water volumes within its existing internal dispatch
system, with Basic's integrated solution
automatically picking up and routing orders as required, Basic says. Once orders
are routed, the company continues, the
solution provides real-time updates on
job status, vehicle location information,
and automated ticket processing from
generation to approval. According to
Basic, the improved efficiency in dis-

LAGCOE Aids Students Pursuing STEM Degrees
LAFAYETTE, LA.-LAGCOE has
announced the 2020 recipients of its
Future Energy Professionals scholarships,
which help students study fields that
draw on science, technology, engineering
or math (STEM) at Louisiana universities
and colleges.
According to LAGCOE, this year's
recipients are:
· Laelah Credeur, a junior at Lafayette
Christian Academy who plans to attend
Louisiana State University and A&M

JD Fields Purchases Firm That Fabricates Steel Pipe
HOUSTON-JD Fields & Company
Inc., which distributes steel products for
U.S. oil and gas pipelines and steel foundations for civil infrastructure, announces
it has acquired Alameda Pipe & Steel
Company, an 85-year-old steel products
manufacturer based in Gardena, Ca.
JD Fields says the purchase continues
its evolution into a one-stop, vertically integrated supplier and manufacturer of
steel products. The company points out
that Alameda has been rebranded
Alameda Pipe and Fab.
"Our acquisition of Alameda Pipe and
Fab is the first major step in a strategic
growth plan to move into the steel manufacturing industry as we continue to expand on the West Coast," says Jay Fields,
JD Fields' president and chief operating
officer. "I am excited about the opportunity to absorb Alameda's plants and bring
on its top-level executives, who have the
right connections and deep industry
knowledge to rival any competitor."

patching and ticket handling has the potential to reduce operating costs related
to water disposal activities 4%.
By automating manual workflows and
integrating previously deployed technologies, Basic says its solution reduces water
management costs, shortens cycle times
and improves compliance, traceability
and auditability. The solution can integrate
with SCADA systems, Basic mentions,
saying that end-to-end instrumentation
can eliminate manual data entry and automate reconciliation of disposal water
volumes to reduce costs even further.

JD Fields predicts the acquisition will
allow it to maintain its revenue even in
today's tough market while providing
added value to customers who are looking
to buy top-quality niche steel products, including contractors who need specific products and services to meet unique needs.

teacher;
· William Duke, an LSU-bound senior
at University Laboratory School interested
in chemical engineering or computer science; and
· Logan Paul, a senior at Central Private who plans to attend Baton Rouge
Community College to study process
technology.
Duke says, "After attending the LAGCOE conference and technical exposition
last fall, I realized there are many more
uses for computer science in the oil and
gas field than I thought, and there will be
plenty of options to stay and work in
Louisiana. While I do not have my career
totally mapped out, I am certain it will
be in a STEM-related field, and that I
will become a productive member of society, using my skills to help others."

Modular Lubricator Debuts To Speed Installation Times
GOLDEN, CO.-Well Master Corp. has
launched the Modular Lubricator, which it
says offers maximum customer customization
and has expedited wellhead installation.
Designed for both standard and cold
weather corrosive applications, Well
Master relates it has created ModLube
specifically to reduce the time and cost
associated with higher pressure oil and
gas wellhead installation. The company
says the made-to-order lubricator is
available in multiple outlet configurations

to fit most wellhead designs.
