As part of its strong commitment to social responsibility, CGG is keen to play a positive and active role in the communities that host its geophysical activities and permanent centers, in particular while seeking whenever possible to recruit and train staff native to its countries of operations.
The Oil & Gas industry is facing a growing shortage of qualified staff, principally due to its aging workforce. Companies are increasingly challenged to find and attract qualified science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates. This situation is exacerbated in emerging countries.
As an international geoscience company operating in more than 30 countries worldwide, it is vital that CGG takes a stand for the next generations of STEM graduates.
TO MEET OUR LOCAL RECRUITMENT NEEDS CLOSE TO OUR IMAGING CENTRES; CGG GEOSOFTWARE HAS ENGAGED IN A UNIVERSITY DONATION PROGRAM THAT ENCOURAGES INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO GEOSCIENCE EDUCATION.
GeoSoftware signs a number of cooperation agreements worldwide granting for academic purposes data characterization and processing software licenses (HampsonRussell, Jason, Insight Earth) free of charge. Supporting graduate programs throughout the world, the donation program addresses technological advancements and research in reservoir characterization. In emerging countries, software donations are often accompanied by logistical help and donations of computer equipment.
CGG GeoSoftware has been donating its HampsonRussell software for research and training purposes since 1987. Currently, CGG has such partnership with 116 Universities worldwide, one in four being in an emerging country. With about $500 million allocated in software donations in 2017 (estimated market value), CGG GeoSoftware brings a meaningful contribution to international technological empowerment internationally.
