Almond Geoscience is the consultancy company run by Philip Wild, specialising in writing software and consultancy to solve problems encoutered in data processing and analytics, data management and science.

The company was formed at towards the end of 2013 and over the seven years since then Philip has worked on several projects, including:

  • Adding a GUI to existing Python Jupyter notebook style product, ensuring that the software was available to a wide user base with a professional presentation.
  • Using C++/Qt to build data processing functions for deep ground penetrating pulsed radar data.
  • Winning a Dragons' Den style competition from the Oil and Gas Technology Centre for funding a project to add Machine Learning and automation to seismic data QC and preparation.
  • Writing and enhancing data analytics Python plugins used by Ikon Science for classification and regression problems.
  • Presented paper at EAGE 2018, Copenhagen, on the development of a QI workflow for shale reservoirs (shows the application of a Python coding project I completed).
  • Writing Python plugins to bring new rock physics capabilities to Ikon Science's RokDoc.
  • Remote QC and reporting of seismic data using Amazon Web Services cloud solutions (uses Java and AWS Lambda applications).
  • Member of SEG technical standards's committee, with focus on revisions of oil industry SEG-Y and SEG-D standards.
  • Writing C++ software to convert navigation data (P1/11 and P1/90)/
