Predictive Stratigraphy in the Field (Spain)

  • Dr. GÉRARD J.
    Dr. GÉRARD J.
    Predictive stratigraphy consultant, 1957, French, more than 35 years of experience in the industry. He served as a clastic sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy advisor with Repsol from 2006 to 2016, supplying internal expertise to exploration and production projects run in both Madrid and affiliates. After studying geology at the Université de Caen in France, he joined the industry in 1981, starting as a seismic surveyor in South Yemen and Gabon with C.G.G. before processing and interpreting seismic data in Massy (France). In 1985, he worked as an exploration geophysicist with Fina Exploration Norway in Stavanger. In 1989, he joined Elf in Paris, in the basin study group. His transfer to their scientific and technical centre in Pau brought him much closer to rocks. Since the early 90's he has described quite a mileage of cores and has dedicated attention and time to trace fossils and ichnofabrics.
