dGB Earth Sciences has announced the opening of a new office in Rio de Janeiro as well as the appointment of Nanne Hemstra as the office’s new head. Nanne was previously Executive Vice President for the Americas prior to taking up his new role in Brazil (as Executive Vice President for Brazil).
The announcements are in response to a growing demand for dGB’s seismic interpretation solutions by South American operators as well as testament to dGB’s ambitious growth plans. dGB’s open source software OpendTect plays a key role in providing a greater understanding of the subsurface and lowering exploration risk and is ideally suited to complex geologies and frontier regions across South America. dGB already has a number of Brazilian clients where OpendTect has been applied, is partnering with a leading operator on sponsored development work in Brazil, and is also keen to work closely with academic institutions across South America.
