Seisquare was founded in 1993 by Luc Sandjivy. Luc is driven by a passion for geostatictics and the stochastic modeling of earth phenomena, which he considers as a cornerstone technology for sustainable and profitable management of Earth resources, such as oil and gas reservoirs. This passion was sparked by Luc’s PhD tutor and mentor, Georges Matheron, a mathematician and geologist who is known as the founder of geostatistics and mathematical morphology, and the creator of the concept of kriging. Georges created the Centre Géostatistique et de Morphologie Mathématique at the Paris School of Mines in 1968 in Fontainebleau, France.
Originally named ERM.S for Earth Resource Management Services, Luc’s vision for his company was to develop industrial applications for Matheron’s work and provides services to a global customer base. Renamed Seisquare in 2008, the company has a track record of over 20 years of continuous service to oil and gas companies, and has helped pioneer the understanding of the ground-breaking impact geostatistics can have in simplifying and improving geophysical processing and modeling workflows. Since 2008, Seisquare has evolved from a service to a software provider in order improve the accessibility and adoption of its methods and techniques to the global exploration and production community.
