STATE OF THE ART OF NATURAL HYDROGEN EXPLORATION

  • Dr. PRINZHOFER A.
    Dr. PRINZHOFER A.
    Civil Engineer from the Paris School of Mines, Alain Prinzhofer completed a doctoral engineering PhD on the structural geology and petrology of the New Caledonian ophiolite at the Paris School of Mines, and a state PhD on melting processes of the Earth's mantle at the Institut de Physique du Globe in Paris (IPGP). As a researcher in cosmochemistry, he worked on the formation of the solar system at Caltech (California), then on natural gas at IFPEN. For several years as a precursor, he has devoted himself to research into natural hydrogen, a new source of renewable and non-polluting energy. He is Scientific Director of GEO4U (Brazil), and affiliated professor at the University of Paris and Rio de Janeiro. He has published 70 articles in international journals, 1 book, 8 patents, and approximately 200 communications in international conferences.

  • Dr. MICHOUX D.
    Dr. MICHOUX D.
    Daniel, born 1955, embarked on a life-long journey into the world of dinocyst morphology and stratigraphy during his PhD at Pierre et Marie Curie University, Paris, France, awarded in 1981. He then applied his skills to industrial projects, as a summer internship with the exploration team of EXXON's European team. In 1984, he moved to Canada, providing palynological support to an oil exploration partnership involved in offshore Newfoundland plays. In 1986 he crossed the Atlantic back to Europe and moved to British Petroleum, where he was responsible for Tertiary palynology of the Central North Sea. In these early stages of his career, he was fortunate to meet two of the pioneers of dinoflagellate studies, Lewis (Lou) Stover, from ExxonMobil and William (Bill) Evitt from Stanford University and have profitable exchanges with them about dinocyst morphology. He attended Evitt's unique 2 weeks dinocyst course, entirely focused on morphology, regardless of stratigraphy. This reinforced Daniel in his belief that there can be no good biostratigraphy, be it based on dinocyst or other microfossil groups, without an accurate morphological interpretation. He joined Total (now TotalEnergies) in 1989 for an extended career of 32 years, during which he applied this approach to new horizons, broadening his expertise both stratigraphically (in the Cretaceous and Jurassic) and geographically, with a focus on western Africa, Angola, Ivory Coast, and more recently South Africa). Recently retired, he is now keen to share the experience accumulated during four decades of first-hand, eyes down the microscope experience of what represent arguably the most exciting of all microfossil group, Dinoflagellate Cysts of the Mesozoic and - best of all - the Cenozoic.

  • PEIGNARD L.
    PEIGNARD L.
    Ludovic Peignard began his career as an exploration geophysicist, involved in many Oil & Gas projects, covering various domains of geosciences. While getting experienced in geosciences, feeling a lack of flexible and swift software solution in the Oil & Gas Industry, Ludovic has developed EarthQuick, a software to act as a companion for Geoscientists. The solution evolved rapidly and let now geoscientists performed usual tasks which are part of their redundant duties, covering a wide range of facilities, from geosciences data loading and interpretation to volumes assessment, passing by mCSEM feasibility studies. From 2016, EarthQuick has also turned to Near Surface issues, keeping the same motto: letting user get straight to the point through simple and intuitive workflows. From 2013, Ludovic has become a geophysicist consultant, a technical software expert and an associate professor in Geophysics at different reference institutions (IFP School, IFP Training, École et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre (EOST), Polytech Sorbonne (UPMC) and École Nationale Supérieure de Géologie (ENSG)). Ludovic graduated M.Sc.'s from the EOST (France) in 2006 and from the IFP School in 2007, major Geophysics.
