dGB Earth Sciences appoints new Chief Geoscientist

Thursday, February 6, 2014

dGB Earth Sciences is to strengthen its training and services capabilities with the appointment of Arnaud Huck as the company's Chief Geoscientist.

Arnaud, who has over 10 years' experience in the geosciences industry, will have a variety of responsibilities in his new role including the management of dGB's services-based operations and customized studies worldwide and the training of seismic interpreters on dGB's open source software OpendTect.

Up to 500 geoscientists have been trained on OpendTect to date at dGB's offices in the Netherlands, Houston and Mumbai with Arnaud responsible for training up to 100 himself. Nine dGB geoscientists will report to Arnaud in his new role with new training modules on pseudo-well modelling and seismic inversion to also be introduced over the next few months.

'Products are not just about software - they are about the people, information, workflow, training and support which create a complete service-focused solution,' said dGB Earth Services CEO, Kristofer Tingdahl.

He continues: 'That's why training and services are so important to us at dGB in ensuring that interpreters get maximum value from our technologies. We are delighted that Arnaud will be spearheading these efforts over the coming months.'

His words were backed up by Arnaud Huck: 'dGB's training and services operations are a crucial and highly renowned part of our business and I look forward to moving them forward. Key activities I will be involved in over the coming months include the structuring of our training courses so that they are perfectly aligned with clients' needs as well as shorter, more focused training that will focus on the expertise and requirements of particular groupings.'

Arnaud Huck has worked as a Senior Geoscientist since 2004 during which he has played a key role in quantitative seismic studies at dGB, including seismic reservoir characterization, well modelling, impedance inversions and AVO studies. Arnaud holds an MSc degree with honors in Geophysics from the School of Engineering Geophysics at Strasbourg.

Training and services are central to dGB's operations. As well as training, dGB also conducts exclusive, tailor made studies on behalf of international E&P companies and national oil companies. Such studies vary from regional exploration (object detection, fluid migration history, sequence stratigraphy) through to qualitative and quantitative interpretations - all increasing operators' understanding of reservoir distributions and properties and supporting key E&P business decisions.
