Frank Aanvik
Frank Aanvik
Chief Reservoir Geophysicist

Graduated as a Master of Science from University in Oslo in Applied Industrial Mathematics in 1997, with a master thesis on Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar satellites. Worked as Research Scientist in Telenor with telecommunication after which I joined Statoil (now Equinor) as a trainee in Geophysics. Held various positions in the entire Value Chain of Statoil (now Equinor); Reservoir Geophysics, Project Leader (Reservoir Geophysics), Petroleum Technology Department Leader, Project Leader Redetermination Internationally, Advisor Reservoir Geophysics and Chief Engineer Reservoir Geophysics. In addition to my technical training and experience, I have Project Leader, Leadership, Legal (litigation), Commercial and Negotiation training and experience. I have also been privileged to share my knowledge training and mentoring colleagues.


 Claudio Strobbia Claudio Strobbia
Chief Research Scientist and Founder
Real Time Seismic

After a PhD in applied geophysics, on geotechnical applications, Claudio worked as research assistant at the Politecnico di Torino. He moved then to the European Centre for Training and Research in Earthquake Engineering, shifting to global seismology, risk and earthquake engineering, site and laboratory testing. He then joined Schlumberger, in Cairo and London, where he covered different research positions, mainly in the development of novel processing methods for land seismic. He joined then the Total headquarters, in Pau, as land seismic processing advisor. He founded realtimeseismic in 2016.


 Kit Chambers Kit Chambers
Senior Geophysicist

Kit received a BSc from the University of Bristol in Geology and Masters in Geophysics from the University of Durham. Upon obtaining a PhD in global seismology from the Oxford University he then returned to the University of Bristol to carry of postdoctoral research with Prof. Mike Kendall developing techniques for the processing of surface microseismic data. Following his time at Bristol, Kit formed a small company (RockTalk Imaging) together with Stephen Wilson in 2010. Following the incorporation of RockTalk into Pinnacle-Halliburton in 2012 Kit served as technology leader for the surface microseismic group. He has been employed with the Nanometrics Oil and Gas division since early 2016.


 Michael Peter Suess Michael Peter Suess
Global Review Lead

Michael Peter Suess graduated in 1992 from the University of Bonn in Geology. Peter continued his studies to receive a PhD degree from the same university in 1996, working on quantitative stratigraphic modeling and geostatistic methods. In 1999 Peter joined Harvard University where he worked for 2 years on crustal seismic velocity modeling in Southern California. In 1999 he assumed a position as assistant at the department of geoscience in Tübingen, where he is now Adjunct Professor. In 2006 Peter joined Wintershall the largest Germany Oil and Gas Company as geomodeling specialist and research geologist. Peter is now the global review lead for exploration, being responsible for all exploration project reviews in Wintershall.
 Anders Rossland Anders Rossland
Exploration Manager
Aker BP

Anders holds a Master of Technology in Petroleum Geology form the University of Stavanger, Norway, where he graduated in 2011. The thesis was on the tectonostratigraphy of the Mandal High, in the Southern North Sea. Since then, he has worked as a geoscientist in exploration at Suncor Energy Norway from 2011 to 2014, in various basins and projects. He joined Aker BP (Det norske at the time) in 2014 as a geologist in exploration, mainly in the Access (New Acreage) Group. In 2017, he was project lead in Aker BP for the APA licensing round and is currently Exploration Manager for the Access Group in Aker BP. In 2007, he volunteered as a mediator in the Mediation Service in Norway, a position he continues to hold. The Mediation Service in Norway rely on layman mediators to handle a wide range of conflicts, from serious criminal cases to civil mediations.
