From Noia

Come hear an international perspective on the impact of the new, regional, multi-client seismic survey – one  of the largest programs globally – ongoing in offshore Newfoundland  & Labrador, and the recent Flemish Pass discoveries.

Noia’s 2014 AGM, taking place on Thursday, February 6 at the Delta St. John’s Hotel, will feature Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere with TGS Inc., as keynote speaker.

TGS provides multi-client geoscience data to oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) companies worldwide and is one of Nalcor’s partners in the seismic program taking place offshore Newfoundland & Labrador. Rod will speak about the game-changing effect of this new offshore seismic data and Statoil’s Flemish Pass discoveries; the C-NLOPB’s recent announcement of scheduled land sales; the impact on the world’s view of offshore Newfoundland & Labrador’s prospectivity; and how this will help increase exploration activity in the region.

Rod joined TGS in 2001 through its acquisition of A2D Technologies, where he held leadership positions in Sales & Marketing and Global Business Development.  Prior to his appointment as Senior VP Western Hemisphere in 2012, he held the position of Senior VP Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific and was instrumental in TGS’ global expansion into new frontiers. Rod has more than 27 years of industry experience including 16 years at Unocal Corporation. Rod graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Business/Finance.
