CGG GeoSoftware Donates Jason Reservoir Characterization Software to University of Oslo Geoscience Department

Paris, France – January 30, 2018

CGG GeoSoftware has donated its Jason reservoir characterization software suite to the University of Oslo (UiO). Complementing an existing donation of GeoSoftware’s HampsonRussell software, UiO’s Department of Geosciences will now benefit from a more complete seismic reservoir characterization package to enhance scientific research and expand the theoretical and practical knowledge of its students in quantitative reservoir characterization and inversion techniques.

As Norway's oldest institution for research and higher education UiO contributes to innovation directly through commercialization of research findings, and through cooperation with business partners and the public sector. Following a merger between its Geology, Physical Geography and Geophysics departments in 2003, the Department of Geosciences is the widest-ranging earth sciences department in Norway, offering a broad spectrum of disciplines from deep mantle processes to atmospheric sciences.

Dr. Nazmul Haque Mondol, Associate Professor, Petroleum Geology and Geophysics, said: "Having seen the extensive and integrated range of solutions the Jason software package can offer, we wanted our students to have access to such tools by incorporating them in our teaching and research program. Now students can use industry-leading technology like Jason for their learning and research and also become familiar with the software they are likely to use when they enter the workplace."  

Kamal al-Yahya, Senior Vice President, GeoSoftware, CGG, said: “Through our University Donation Program, CGG GeoSoftware is committed to supporting the technological education of the next generation of geoscientists. Given that UiO offers the broadest research-based geoscience advanced learning environment in Norway, it is a privilege to develop close ties with students at the Department of Geosciences to help them understand how Jason’s innovative reservoir characterization techniques can be successfully applied to the challenges of real-world scenarios, particularly those looking to pursue a career in geoscience.”

CGG GeoSoftware has been donating its software for research and training purposes since 1986 and over 130 universities and colleges now participate worldwide.
