Patrick Connelly

Patrick Connolly graduated from Birmingham University with a BSc in physics in 1977 and joined Seismograph Service Ltd as a data processor. After working in Oman, New Zealand, Pakistan, and London, he moved to Britoil in Glasgow in 1982 and worked as a seismic programmer until the company was acquired by BP in 1989.

Connolly has remained with BP as a seismic analyst and occasional interpreter in Aberdeen, Houston, and London. He has been a member of a number of exploration and appraisal teams: Foinaven and Schiehallion (West of Shetland), Holstein (Gulf of Mexico), and Greater Plutonio (offshore Angola). Since 2001, he has worked in BP’s E&P Technology division and currently is manager, Seismic Reservoir Characterization and Surveillance R&D.

Patrick was awarded the SEG Virgil Kauffman Gold Medal in 2001 for his development of elastic impedance technology. He was an EAGE distinguished lecturer in 2007.
