What excites Alan is the challenge of understanding reservoir geology and fluids using 3D, 4D and pre-stack seismic, as well as understanding depth uncertainty by picking apart depth migrations or running multiple depth conversions. These interests come together in his day job which is risk and resource evaluation of oil and gas assets, or employing his skills as an Expert Witness in subsurface disputes.
