Thomas is owner and chief geophysicist of Amisia GeoConsultants. He studied geophysics at Karlsruhe University in Germany, where he also made his doctoral thesis (Ph.D.). From 1987-1997, Thomas worked in academia, mainly on reflection seismic inversion and migration algorithms. Since 1997, he works in the oil and gas industry at various companies. His field of expertise is seismic reservoir characterization (SRC) or Quantitative Interpretation (QI). At Amisia GeoConsultants, Thomas is responsible for all geophysical SRC projects and topics.
... is a privately-owned, independent, geophysical consultancy company. We offer services mainly in the domain of Seismic Reservoir Characterization (SRC) or Quantitative Interpretation (QI).
Our customers are companies of the oil and gas E&P industry as well as geothermal energy companies. If your challenge is to confirm the presence of a hydrocarbons or geothermal reservoir, to assess and risk a lead or prospect with respect to porosity, permeability, pore fluid content or fractures, we are able to assist you.
We like to help you with solutions to individual, non-standard problems, which larger consulting companies would struggle with. You need a second, independent opinion about the reliability of a seismic analysis or study? We can do a thorough evaluation of the quality of this analysis or study and give recommendations how to deal with it.
