Yesterday's Doodlebuggers waded through knee-deep mud, battled the elements, and faced the hazards of the field. Their challenges were immense, but today's geoscientists face challenges of their own, like:
- solving both subsurface and environmental challenges
- keeping up with rapid technological advances
- encouraging and preparing the next generation
Geophysics has a new face:
- exploring in extreme conditions
- developing complex reserves
- maximizing production from oil fields
- identifying and conserving crucial freshwater resources
- collaborating globally in real-time
- harnessing the technology revolution
Today, the SEG Foundation supports cutting-edge programs that benefit SEG members, the corporations for which they work, and the communities in which they live.
“What happened in San Antonio (at the 2007 Student Leadership Symposium) was something unique, something new, a long expected change in the preparing for the future. I’m glad that I was there…I was part of this change…lived dream moments….made great friends and opened new gates for new opportunities.” --Cezar Iacob (2007)/University of Bucharest/ SEG Student Section Leader
Today Cezar is studying for his PhD and remains very actively involved with SEG, the SEG Foundation, and his Student Chapter.
You are the future
"One of the strengths of the oil industry is the depth of its commitment to technology. And that commitment is championed by its professional organizations, such as the SEG. These organizations are extremely important to advance our understanding of new technologies. They are a key foundation for future success." --Daniel Yergin, Chairman, Cambridge Energy Research Associates, and author of The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money and Power.
