Issue Material Deadline Publication Date Special Topic
January 01 December 2016 01 January 2017 Land Seismic
We start the year with land seismic where the main interest is in the development of more efficient and cost-effective wireless acquisition systems with higher channel counts and less downtime for complex geological environments. Systems are also becoming more hard wearing so that they can operate at higher temperatures.
February 01 january 2016 01 February 2017 Reservoir Monitoring
One of our most popular topics, this issue covers the continuing efforts of the E&P geoscience and engineering community to develop workflows that uncover and/or increase production from existing reservoirs as well as develop more sophisticated approaches to new developments.
March 01 February 2017 01 March 2017 Petroleum Geology and Basins
The issue most dedicated to the petroleum geology community provides an insight into how hydrocarbons prospectivity around the world is being assessed. In addition, the geology of some likely licensing area candidates in different countries will be analysed.
April 01 March 2017 01 April 2017 Passive Seismic
Passive seismic is now becoming a key component in the microseimic monitoring of hydraulic fracturing, but it is also being seen as an additional tool for reservoir monitoring and other applications such as monitoring of CO2 sequestration and geothermal energy projects. We will bring you the latest developments in this exciting and important technology such as in microseismic beam steering and Passive Seismic Tomography.
May 01 April 2017 01 May 2017 Modelling/Interpretation
Companies are improving the Earth model with better integration of sub-surface data. High-performance computers are enhancing the ability to accurately model even more challenging data that better intergrates seismic, geological and engineering information.
June 01 May 2017 01 June 2017 Energy, Technology, Sustainability - Time to Open a New Chapter
This special issue of First Break will be distributed at the EAGE Annual Meeting in Paris. We will be inviting all the big players in the world of geoscience to contribute to this bumper issue of First Break. Excellent technical papers on rage of issues about the future of the industry will be presented.
July 01 June 2017 01 july 2017 Unconventionals & Carbon Capture and Storage
Geophysical data acquisition methods can contribute much to the imaging of unconventional resources such as shale oil and gas, tight gas, heavy oil and coal bed methane that explorers are focusing on more and more. Similarly, operators determining and monitoring locations for carbon capture and storage are looking to seismic and other methods in the geoscience tool kit.
August 01 july 2017 01 August 2017 Near Surface Geoscience
This is a chance to catch up with the latest research and operations in the investigation of the near surface using geophysical methods including seismic, Ground Penetrating Radar and time lapse ERT. This issue is distributed at the annual EAGE Near Surface meeting in Malmö, Sweden and will include a broad range of articles to reflect the many fields in which near surface geoscience provides applications for understanding the subsurface.
September 01 August 2017 01 September 2017 EM & Potential Methods
Electromagnetic survey methods are making great progress in the industry as more and more oil companies integrate their seismic data with EM data in order to build a better all-round image of their hydrocarbon prospects. This issue also features potential methods, which is a valuable tool, particularly in defining structures in a regional or basin level context.
October 01 September 2017 01 October 2017 Reservoir Geoscience and Engineering
One of our most popular topics, this issue covers the continuing efforts of the E&P geoscience and engineering community to develop workflows that uncover and/or increase production from existing reservoirs as well as develop more sophisticated approaches to new developments.
November 01 October 2017 01 November 2017 Marine Seismic
In many ways marine seismic acquisition cannot help being the attentiongrabber, because of the size and expense of the operations and the race to innovate. Look out as all the big players present their latest innovations, which continue to fuel the broadband revolution, including bigger vessels with more streamers that are better able to respond to environmental concerns, such as marine mammal monitoring.
December 01 November 2017 01 December 2017 Data Processing
We will trace rapid developments in computing power and complex algorithms which are maximising the value of acquired data, which is being increasingly integrated with well logs and potential method information. Such improvements are muchneeded because explorers are turning their attention to ever-more challenging fields such as vast sub-salt fields and frontier areas in deeper water.
