3dss Registrations Close on March 16th

Less than 7 days remaining before registrations close so register now! Omicron is down and Denver has dropped mask mandates. Come to downtown Denver to network with colleagues, meet with exhibitors, and debate where our profession is heading. See how seismic interpretation has evolved while the Coronavirus has been mutating and most of us were working from home.  Presentations of the latest 3d seismic case histories from the Permian, Marcellus, Rocky Mountains, and Colombia make you think of new ways to apply geophysics to geologic problems. Plus, we have two special guest speakers:

  • Kickoff Speaker- Klaas Koster (Occidental Oil & Gas)- “The Bright Future of Geophysics”
  • Keynote Speaker- Alex Cranberg (Aspect Holdings)- “3D and Me: Surveying the Last 30 Years”

Floyd Presley Wilson, Jr.
December 14, 1939 – February 15, 2022

Floyd Jr. was born in Alexandria, Louisiana in 1939 to Floyd P. Wilson, Sr. and Ona Estelle Galloway Wilson. The family moved to Magnolia, Arkansas where Floyd Jr. attended school including earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Geology from Southern Arkansas University. He was preceded in death by his parents.

He began his seismic career with Seismograph Service Corporation traveling across the southeast United States.

He met the love of his life Selwyn Dawn Stallings in Corpus Christi and they wed in 1964. Floyd was employed by Petty Geophysical Corporation/Petty Ray Corporation for the next 10 years. In 1975, Floyd and Selwyn moved to Denver to work with CGG, French seismic company. He fulfilled his dream of starting his own company in 1979 when he began Wilson Geophysical, Inc. and retired from WGI in 2019.

Another dream fulfilled when he moved to Cedar Creek Lake in Texas to begin a new chapter of his life in 1992, closer to their children.

They had three children – Bart Wilson (Paige), Matt Wilson (Taffney) and Beth Trimble (David) who blessed them with seven grandkids – Taylor Wilson (Daniela), Peyton Wilson, Kailee Macatee (George), Mason Wilson, Haley Wilson, Wilson Trimble, and Aubrey Trimble; and one great grandson George Macatee.

Floyd was a legend in the oil and gas industry. A geologist and seismic geophysicist, he was a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists for over 58 years, a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and a member of the First United Methodist Church in Malakoff, Texas.

Floyd loved and enjoyed his children, grandchildren and great grand-child, sharing with them his love for fishing, hunting, the outdoors and family. He valued his friendships and touched many people with his love of life. A great story-teller until the end – he would reminisce about the ‘old days’ growing up on a farm with cattle, doodle-bugging from the coast in the south to Wyoming, hunting and scuba adventures, and traveling with family. He taught his children, and grands, to have a strong work ethic, but enjoy life – work hard, play hard. His true legacy was his integrity, compassion, kindness to all, humor, and never-ending love for family.
