Getech News Stories 2015

23-06-15 Recent charity work

Getech supports a different charity each month. In April and May, the company donated money to the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association and Sense About Science, respectively. June’s charity is the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Monthly proceeds from the tuck shop in the Leeds office are matched by the company, and the Charity Committee also arranges special funding activities. Over the last few months, the funding activities have included a bake sale and a jewellery sale. July’s funding activities will include a bake off competition and a treasure hunt.

Several Getech employees will also be supporting Days for Girls by making kits for them. In addition, the Charity Committee arranges a monthly themed collection from staff for charity shops (books or clothes) or for foodbanks (non-perishable food).

25-05-15 Getech will be at both the EAGE and AAPG conferences at the start of June

Getech has stands at both AAPG in Denver (stand 2139) and EAGE in Madrid (stand 171). These will be our first exhibitions since we acquired ERCL, and there will be an opportunity to meet several Getech and ERCL staff at both exhibitions.

At AAPG Getech will have posters on North American unconventionals, the tectonic evolution of East Africa, and the opening history of the Gulf of Mexico. We will be utilising a 48” OmniGlobe to showcase Globe, and demonstrating other Getech products including global gravity and magnetic data, global plate models, palaeogeography maps and Earth system modelling results. Visit us in the late afternoon on the Monday or Tuesday for a chance to try some Coloradan delicacies, including local craft beer! ERCL staff will also be on the INP (Mozambique) stand in the International Pavilion.

Meanwhile in Madrid, at the EAGE, we are presenting papers on improvements to derivative generation methods and aspects of our ongoing Multi-Satellite Altimeter Gravity Programme. We are also sponsoring the International Prospect Centre (IPC), and during the week staff will be in the IPC auditorium to give presentations on the 5th Mozambique License Round and on our Global Depth-to-Basement work. We are also hosting an update meeting for sponsors of our Multi-Satellite Altimeter Gravity Programme.

20-05-15 Getech acquires ERCL

On 7 April 2015, Getech announced the completion of the acquisition of ERCL, which is a specialist upstream oil and gas consultancy based in Henley-on-Thames in the UK. ERCL’s skills, experience and reputation are primarily in the use and application of seismic and well data in all stages of the workflow, and they therefore strongly complement Getech’s current capabilities and market position.

On 19 May 2015, Getech hosted a visit to its Leeds office for all ERCL staff. This was central to the integration strategy and to the programme of building strong relationships between the companies and respective staff. There was a series of presentations at the Weetwood Hall conference centre, including twenty thumbnail presentations from staff with a range of backgrounds and current roles, followed by informal sessions at Getech’s Leeds office and dinner at a restaurant in Roundhay Park. To round off the visit, ERCL organised a short field trip to Castleton in Derbyshire.
