Bill Goodway obtained a B.Sc. in Geology from University of London in 1977 and an M.Sc. in Geophysics from University of Calgary in 2001. Prior to 1985 Bill worked for various Seismic Contractors in the UK and Canada. Since 1985 Bill has been employed at PanCanadian Petroleum within the Geophysics department in various capacities from geophysicist to being the Team Lead of a Seismic Analysis Group. Following the PanCanadian and AEC merger to form EnCana in 2002, Bill has worked in the Frontier and New Ventures Group and more recently in Canadian Ventures and Gas Shales, as an Advisor for Seismic Analysis. In this position Bill is involved in virtually all aspects of applied seismic exploration from acquisition design and processing, to experimental special projects and new interpretation methods.

He has presented and co-authored a number of papers at CSEG, EAGE and SEG conventions as well as SEG research workshops, on seismic acquisition and processing, borehole geophysics, anisotropy, multi-component recording and AVO.

Bill has received the CSEG's annual "Best Paper Award" both in 1994 and 1997, the CSEG convention "Best General Paper" award in 1996 and the CSEG convention "Best Technical Paper" award in 1997. In addition, a paper given at the 1994 SEG convention in Los Angeles, was judged in the top 25 presentations.

He is a member of the CSEG, SEG, EAGE and APEGGA as well as the SEG Research Committee. In addition Bill was elected Vice President and President of the CSEG for the 2002/2004 term.
