Thrust Belt Imaging (TBI), a seismic data-processing company focussed on land seismic data, has experienced solid growth in international exploration markets in the past year. After moving on from their strategic alliance with WesternGeco, they are settling into new offices at Suite 215, 605 - 11 Avenue SW, on the corner of 11 Avenue and 5 Street.

New TBI staff in the past year includes Leonardo Escobar (leonardo@tbi.ca) and Thomas Hrycan (thomas@tbi.ca). This spring, TBI had the good fortune of adding three sharp new geophysics graduates to the processing team: Dennis Ellison (dennis@tbi.ca), Usman Shahid (usman@tbi.ca), and Tim MacArthur (tim@tbi.ca). Tim and Usman will start in the time-processing team, learning the processing sequence from the field records through to prestack time migration. Dennis will be working with Rob Vestrum (rob@tbi.ca) on 2D and 3D anisotropic-depth-migration projects.
