dGB Earth Sciences opens Brazil office

Thursday, February 20, 2014

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.

'Today's announcement is a real signal of intent from dGB and an important step forward, allowing us to offer Brazilian and South American operators a complete seismic environment for the processing, visualizing, and interpreting of multi-volume seismic data,' said dGB Earth Services CEO, Kristofer Tingdahl.

'With Nanne at the helm and his intimate understanding of our flagship solution, OpendTect, we look forward to delivering on our growth plans for South America and continuing to deliver the very best in seismic interpretation solutions.'

Nanne Hemstra is one of the founders of dGB's open source seismic interpretation system, OpendTect, and has been involved in almost all OpendTect developments since he started working for dGB in 2001. Nanne holds an MSc in Geophysics from Utrecht University and was Executive Vice President of dGB India from 2007 to 2011, where he set up the Mumbai office. Nanne was also Executive Vice President, Americas before moving to Brazil to take up his current role.

The Brazilian office will be based in Barra da Tijuca in the west of Rio de Janeiro.
