The Ryder Scott geophysics group analyzes seismic data for oil and gas projects in all stages of maturity from exploration to development to secondary and tertiary recovery. The firm interprets that data to aid in the development of full-scale geological models and volumetric estimates of oil and gas in place. To investigate structural and stratigraphic reservoirs, Ryder Scott geophysicists carefully delineate the geology of faults, reefs, salt domes, anticlines and sand channels. To get the best possible geological picture, the geophysicists analyze and correlate well and seismic data.

Where well control is limited, geophysical interpretations enable Ryder Scott to project the extensions of hydrocarbon accumulations away from the bore holes. The geophysics group is familiar with the latest Geoquest and Landmark workstation technology and uses a wide variety of interpretation techniques including amplitude analysis, attribute analysis, stratigraphy studies, structural mapping and modeling, AVO analysis, inversion analysis, velocity analysis and forward modeling.
