CGG GeoSoftware has donated its Hampson-Russell and Jason geophysical software suites, covering all aspects of reservoir characterization, to Stanford University, California. The donated software suites, worth over $3 million, will enable students to better explore reservoir characterization and conduct further research on seismic inversion.
CGG has been a member of the Stanford Industrial Affiliates Program called the Stanford Rock Physics and Borehole Geophysics (SRB) Project since 2008. CGG is also a recent member of the Stanford Center for Reservoir Forecasting (SCRF).
Kamal al-Yahya, Senior Vice President, CGG GeoSoftware said, “CGG and Stanford University share the same commitment to technical excellence and innovation. The technical innovations we see year after year from the SRB team are very beneficial to CGG and the rest of the industry. Our recent software donations continue to cement relations between CGG and Stanford’s Energy Resources Engineering and Geophysics department to help improve the postgraduate training in Rock Physics and Reservoir Forecasting. Through our University Donation Program, CGG GeoSoftware is committed to fostering technological education and empowering a new generation of geoscientists.”
