Biography

Professor Simon Lang is a sedimentologist and stratigrapher with global experience including regional geological mapping, sedimentology/stratigraphy research, and petroleum exploration & development. He worked at the Geological Survey of Queensland (1979-92) for the Paleontology and Regional Mapping departments, then Lecturer of Sedimentology and Stratigraphy at Queensland University of Technology (1992-1999). He then joined the National Centre for Petroleum Geology & Geophysics as Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide, which then became the Australian School of Petroleum (1999-2005), where his work on seismic stratigraphy, reservoir characterization, and modern depositional analogues was deployed for basin analysis and geosequestration (CO2CRC). He joined Woodside as a co-ordinator/manager of Stratigraphy/Reservoir Analysis teams (2005-13) working on all their Australian and most of their international projects. He then moved to Chevron (Energy Technology Company), as a Senior Stratigrapher in the Seismic Geomorphology team and worked as a global consultant based out of Houston (2013-2015), and returned to Perth as Geologic Services Manager & Stratigraphy Advisor (Perth) for Chevron Australia (2015-18). 

He re-joined academe as Professor of Practice - Petroleum Geoscience, and Director of the Centre for Energy Geoscience, University of Western Australia (2018-present) leading industry-funded research consortia on quantitative seismic stratigraphy (QSS2 Consortium) and reservoir analogues (RA Consortium) funded by national and international industry partners.
