Geophysical Technologies Reduce E&P Risks
Given recent industry events, the leaders of IAGC have decided the geophysical industry should broadly communicate the benefit and contributions geophysical imaging technologies make in reducing E&P risks. To that end they have committed IAGC to undertake a global communications initiative to educate global audiences such as governments, the media, the E&P and geophysical industries, the public – and even to those considering a career in geophysics.
To serve as the public face of the initiative, IAGC is developing a new website: www.geophysicsrocks.com. Expected to go live at the beginning of December, the new website will provide information on the importance of oil and gas in today’s societies and to our economies, and on how geophysical technologies help reduce E&P risks in an environmentally conscientious way. The website will be a resource for governments, the media, the E&P and geophysical industries, the public – and even to those considering a career in geophysics. It will include hard facts on our technologies and will be supported by impressive, eye-catching visuals, animations, videos, and more. Through the use of discussion boards and social media outlets, we will look to our members, those in the geophysical industry and those interested in exploration geophysics to help us make the site a valuable resource to educate key global audiences on the vital role geophysical technologies play in reducing E&P risks, both now and in the future.

Some of the results of IAGC's initiative to communicate how geophysical technologies reduce E&P risks:
- 31 October, 2010 Opinion / Editorial article regarding the extensive risk reducing benefits of geophysical technologies (initially for US distribution as drafted)
- E&P Magazine’s Senior Editor Rhonda Duey write-up of IAGC's Communications Initiative in her 26 October, 2010 online blog
- October 19, 2010 article in SEG's daily publication, E&P Daily News (Online Edition)
