The Founding Story

DIG Science AS was founded in February 2018 by a hardcore exploration team with average industry and tech experience of 20+ years. Members of the founding team are experts within rock physics, AVO analysis, quantitative seismic inversion, reservoir prediction, petroleum system analysis, seismic interpretation and data science – all important elements for creating exploration value.

With our long exploration history within oil companies, we have new and innovative solutions on how to optimize what we do best

– get the most value out of the seismic and well data

– find oil and gas

We aim to create sustainable exploration value and efficiency by combining our in-depth knowledge with the advances of new technology.

The Founding Team

The team has extensive exploration experience and is available for special studies and consultancy work.

Give us a problem, and we will solve it!
