Key Personnel

John Bain

Exploration Geophysicist, President


Download CV

John Bain has over 35 years’ experience in the use of gravity and magnetic data to assist petroleum exploration, with leadership roles at: Edcon, LCT, Galileo Geophysics, and now Bain Geophysical.  John has degrees in Geophysics from Colorado School of Mines and an MBA from Rice University in Houston.

John Bain’s experience includes the integrated interpretation of gravity, magnetics and seismic data, as well as quality control and survey design for gravity/magnetics/FTG, and enhanced data processing techniques.  Bain is an expert in 3-D modeling around salt, carbonates, overthrust and reservoir-level geophysics, using both gravity and FTG/Falcon data sets, tightly integrated with seismic velocities.

Guy Flanagan

Geophysical Consultant

Guy Flanagan is a geophysical consultant with 40 years’ experience in worldwide non-seismic methods interpretation, processing, acquisition, research and management.  His main interest is in high end technical interpretation and modeling of non-seismic data incorporating new concepts and software and close integration with structural geologists, basin modelers and exploration teams. He has a strong focus on interaction with project teams to address key technical issues in lieu of producing a standard set of interpretation products.


Caroline Burke

Geoscience Consultant


Download CV

Caroline Burke is a Geoscientist with 18 years oil & gas operator experience. She has deep expertise in petroleum systems analysis, geochemistry & integration of geodynamics, tectonics and complex structural geology. She has gained broad experience in deep water, fold belt exploration and extensive global new ventures in both conventional and unconventional space. Caroline is particularly interested in developing innovative workflows and a better understanding around the more seamless and consistent integration of geophysical crust and lithosphere models with geodynamics, basin subsidence and thermal modelling and ultimately improved petroleum systems analysis.

Shawn Mulcahy

Geophysical Consultant


Download CV

Shawn Mulcahy has over 23 years’ experience working for both operators and contractors in the oil & gas industry. He has worked in several different technical and leadership roles primarily in deepwater exploration of the Atlantic Margins and Gulf of Mexico. He is a proven oil finder and is an expert at defining new play concepts and access strategies as well as prospect generation and maturation. Mulcahy has both created and led New Ventures teams and his expertise in both seismic and potential fields interpretation creates an extremely broad skill set from mega-regional basin screening to detailed prospect definition. His main focus is the integration of the aforementioned skill set with advanced basin modeling and geologic principles to materially de-risk emerging and frontier exploration.
