CGG is a global geoscience technology leader and industry pioneer with a history of over 90 years of pushing the scientific boundaries of what is possible. Employing around 3,700 people worldwide, we provide a unique range of data, products, services and solutions to solve the complex natural resource, environmental and infrastructure challenges of our clients. CGG is listed on the Euronext Paris SA (ISIN: 0013181864).
This role is for physicists, mathematicians and geophysicists in their last year of school, who are looking for a six-month internship where they can put their theoretical knowledge and problem solving skills to the test working on real Earth data. The role is based in Massy, a town in the greater Parisian region of France.
We welcome all international students with valid work permit in France!
The world beneath our feet is both incredibly complex and the source of the natural resources fundamental to the functioning of our society. We use the latest signal processing, modelling and imaging techniques and among the most advanced compute facilities in the world to build high-resolution 3D images and models of subsurface structure and rock properties for our clients.
During your internship, you will be working inside a processing and imaging team, in close collaboration with our R&D department, in order to provide the latest available technology to our clients.
Land processing & Imaging: Within one of our teams dedicated to ultra-high density processing and imaging for land data, you will be in charge of:
Marine processing & Imaging: Within one of our teams dedicated to marine processing and imaging (streamer and/or OBN/OBC), you will be in charge of:
4D processing & Imaging: Within one of our teams dedicated to processing and imaging of 4D monitoring data, you will be in charge of:
Elastic FWI: Full waveform inversion (FWI) is now the standard solution to build a velocity model either for land or marine data. However, most FWI run in the industry are performed using acoustic modeling due to the prohibitive cost of elastic modeling. At CGG we are currently working on improving the efficiency of the elastic FWI for production, including large surveys. This will allow for the inversion of Vp, Vs and density which can be used by the reservoir department to derive rock properties such as porosity and permeability. During this internship you will be in charge of:
Carbon capture: CO2 storage is a crucial step towards carbon neutrality. Within this new field, CGG, a worldwide leader in subsurface imaging, has a critical role to play by providing clear images of the subsurface which can be used to assess potential reservoirs and monitor them during their lifetime. During this internship you will be in charge of:
Seismic imaging & Seismic reservoir characterization: During your internship, you will:
In the last year of Masters degree in any of the following disciplines: Geophysics, Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics/Astronomy, Natural Sciences with a Physics specialisation.
