The director of the Institute of Petroleum Engineering wins the 2017 Alfred Wegener Award by the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers.

Professor Sebastian Geiger, director of the Institute of Petroleum Engineering and Foundation CMG chair at Heriot-Watt University, has been awarded the 2017 Alfred Wegener Award by the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers.

The award is made to an association member who has made an outstanding contribution over a period of time to the scientific and technical advancement of one or more of the disciplines in the association, particularly petroleum geoscience and engineering.

The citation for the award mentioned his contributions to the field of carbonate reservoir modelling and simulation and his ‘open, accessible teaching and supervision’, as well as his publication track record, which comprises over 120 technical papers and one edited book.

“The award of EAGE’s prestigious Alfred Wegener award to Sebastian Geiger is a fitting and fully deserved testament to his academic prowess and dedication to his subject,” Heriot-Watt’s Chief Scientist, Professor John Underhill, said in an organization statement.

“It is yet another superb example of the quality, breadth and considerable depth of expertise housed in our world-leading Institute of Petroleum Engineering,” he added.
