    Jon Watson delivers virtual lecture for Robert Gordon University

    Last December Jon Watson, Bridgeporth’s General Manger, was asked by Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen to deliver a virtual session for their Petroleum Data Management GradCert course.

    The session topic was Planning, Acquisition and Processing of gravity and magnetic data and a discussion of the associated information management challenges for this data type. Jon’s audience was made up of 20 students, half from the UK with the rest from Brazil, US, Canada, Netherlands, Nigeria, Ghana. They were from a mix of operators, NOCs, service companies and national data repositories

    The session was well received and the students really appreciated a practitioner perspective on this topic.
