John Hughes

BSc (Hons), honorary member of ASEG, Member of SEG, EAGE and PESA

John has spent all of his 46 year career in the oil and gas industry, specialising in geology and geophysics and during this time has become one of Australia’s foremost acquisition and processing geophysicists with an excellent command of environmental issues and economic and geological objectives.

John is widely sought out to present at numerous meetings, conferences and workshops and sit on national and international committees in relation to seismic surveys and marine life plus other aspects of seismic operations. John retired from corporate roles in 2007, and has since continued to be active in the oil and gas industry through providing advisory services to companies on the more challenging aspects of seismic surveys such as operations in Central Asia, offshore environmental approvals, onshore seismic productivity improvement and near surface (statics) issues.
