Our Consortium

CRGC logo

The Curtin Reservoir Geophysics Consortium (CRGC) is a partnership between industry and academia and is undertaking research into the acquisition, processing and quantitative interpretation of geophysical data with an emphasis on Australian petroleum exploration and production issues.

Focused on Research

Acknowledged as having inspired a culture of excellence in the field of Geophysics at Curtin University, CEG Director Professor Boris Gurevich was awarded the university’s highest honour for academic staff, the title of John Curtin Distinguished Professor.

22/11/2022 – Curtin/CSIRO Geophysics Group Seminar

On Wednesday 21st September 2022, Senior Research Fellow Dr Konstantin Tertyshnikov, Exploration Geophysics, Curtin University, presented a seminar titled: A rapid VSP acquisition with DAS in mineral exploration.

In the last decade distributed fibre optic acoustic and temperature sensing has become quite extensively utilised for various reservoir exploration and monitoring tasks.

Specifically, it gained a lot of attention for downhole seismic applications due to distinct directional sensitivity of fibre optic sensors along a cable and in addition due to usual downhole acquisition geometry, where P-waves approaching receivers along a bore and a cable… Read more
