dGB Earth Sciences opens office in Brazil
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- dGB Earth Sciences, a provider of open source seismic interpretation software, 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 V.P. for the Americas prior to taking up his new role in Brazil (as executive V.P. for Brazil).
The announcements are in response to a growing demand for dGB’s seismic interpretation solutions by South American operators. 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 the complex geologies and frontier regions 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.
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.
Hemstra holds an MS in Geophysics from Utrecht University and was executive V.P. of dGB India from 2007 to 2011, where he set up the Mumbai office.
The Brazilian office will be based in Barra da Tijuca in the west of Rio de Janeiro.
