Rebecca Latimer is currently retired. She is a volunteer for SEG, as a managing editor for book Publications. She has been in the oil industry for over 35 years. Rebecca started her career with Amoco in New Orleans, LA in 1980. In 1986 she moved to Houston with Amoco and worked as an interpreter and sequence stratigrapher in a series of basin modeling groups. In 1989 she moved to Stavanger Norway where she worked as a sequence stratigrapher for Enterprise Oil.

After leaving Amoco in 1995, she worked for 5 years as an inversion/geostatistics specialist and Chief Geoscientist with Jason Geosystems in Houston. In 2000 she joined Texaco's Upstream Technology Group working in inversion and geostatistics. After the Chevron merger, Rebecca held a number of positions including Team Leader for Deep Water Stratigraphy, Geostatistics and Business Development Manager for worldwide technology in the Strategic Planning Unit. Her last assignment with Chevron was on the Exploration and New Ventures Team where she spent time training and developing new hires as well as working international prospects and development. After receiving her bachelor's degree at Framingham State University, Rebecca received her master's degree in Geology/Geophysics from Boston College in 1980, specializing in sedimentology and coastal processes.

Rebecca is an active member of SEG, AAPG, HGS and GSH. She served on the board of SEG's The Leading Edge as an editor for the Interpreter's Corner for 6 years. She has been co-chair of technical meetings at SEG and AAPG, judge for oral sessions and has helped chair and organize an annual GCSSEPM Research Conference. She enjoys serving as Managing Editor for book publications because the work for this position can be completed anywhere in the world, including aboard their 50 ft trawler named "Wavelet" on which they spend half of their time.

Rebecca Latimer received the SEG Presidential Award for outstanding service to the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

Biography 2006 (Distinguished Lecturer)

Rebecca Latimer is currently Team Leader for Chevron's Energy Technology Company Deep Water Stratigraphy Team in Houston, Texas. She has been in the oil industry for 25 years. She started her career with Amoco in New Orleans, La in 1980. In 1986 she moved to Houston with Amoco and worked as an interpreter and sequence stratigrapher in a series of basin modeling groups. In 1989 she moved to Stavanger Norway where she worked as a sequence stratigrapher for Enterprise Oil. After leaving Amoco in 1995, she worked for 5 years as an inversion/geostatistics specialist and Chief Geoscientist with Jason Geosystems in Houston. In 2000 she joined Texaco's Upstream Technology Group working in inversion and geostatistics. Rebecca received her master's degree in geology/geophysics from Boston College in 1980, specializing in coastal processes.

From 1994 onward, Rebecca has been working with inversion data, recognizing the natural link between inverted seismic data and sequence stratigraphy. When properly inverted, the seismic data can yield rock properties, minimize the wavelet effects and allow for a more straight forward medium for interpretation. Rebecca's current interests continue to be the integration of seismic data, inversion, rock properties and well data, as well as the quantification of the uncertainty inherent in interpretation of these data.

Rebecca is an active member of SEG, AAPG, HGS and GSH. She has served on the board of SEG's The Leading Edge as an editor for the Interpreter's Corner for the past 3 years. She has been co-chair of technical meetings at SEG and AAPG, judge for oral sessions and is helping chair and organize the 26th annual GCSSEPM Research Conference in 2006.
