CGG GeoSoftware has donated its Hampson-Russell and Jason geophysical software suites, covering all aspects of reservoir characterization, to Stanford University, California. The donated software suites, worth over $3 million, will enable students to better explore reservoir characterization and conduct further research on seismic inversion. Kamal al-Yahya, Senior Vice President, CGG GeoSoftware said, âCGG and Stanford University share the same commitment to technical excellence and innovation. The technical innovations we see year after year from the SRB team are very beneficial to CGG and the rest of the industry.â Tapan Mukerji, Associate Research Professor of Energy Resources Engineering and Geophysics department, Stanford University, said, âA 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.â
