CGG GeoSoftware donates packages to Stanford University

Offshore staff

PARIS – CGG GeoSoftware has donated its Hampson-Russell and Jason geophysical software suites to Stanford University in California. The donated software suites, worth more than $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 Project since 2008. CGG is also a recent member of the Stanford Center for Reservoir Forecasting.

Tapan Mukerji, associate research professor of Energy Resources Engineering and Geophysics department at Stanford said, “Graduate students at the Stanford Rock Physics group and the Stanford Center for Reservoir Forecasting are using the software in their research for impedance inversion and reservoir characterization.

“A great benefit of such a donation is that the students can focus on their research rather than on the algorithms since these have already been well-tested by developers of the software. The researchers are very grateful for this opportunity provided by CGG. The students apply many different modules, applying both deterministic and stochastic approaches in their research, developing valuable skills that are important for their future careers.”
