SEG/EAGE Distinguished Instructor Short Course 2003

Olivier Dubrule


Geostatistics for Seismic Data Integration in Earth Models


Olivier Dubrule Dr. Dubrule obtained a PhD Degree in Petroleum Geostatistics at Ecole des Mines de Paris in 1981. He then worked for Sohio Petroleum Company in the USA (1982-1986), Shell International in The Netherlands (1986-1991) and, since 1991, he has been with Elf and TotalFinaElf, working in France and in the UK. During his career, he has held a variety of staff and management positions where he developed and applied new techniques for reservoir characterisation, earth modelling, risk analysis and uncertainty quantification. After leading the Earth Modelling and Uncertainty Quantification group at TotalFinaElf, Dr. Dubrule recently became manager of Geoscience Training and Communication.

Dr. Dubrule has authored more than twenty papers in the field of geostatistics and earth modelling. In 1991, he received the President's prize of the International Association of Mathematical Geology, for "Outstanding Contribution to Mathematical Geology by an individual 35 years or younger". In the last decade, he organised and chaired a number of events organised by SPE, EAGE, SEG or AAPG. Dr. Dubrule is the author of AAPG Course Notes Series #38 "Geostatistics in Petroleum Geology", and editor (with E. Damsleth) of "Petroleum Geostatistics" a Special Issue of EAGE's Petroleum Geoscience Journal, published in 2001.
