Gary C. Robinson joined DeGolyer and MacNaughton in 2009. Prior to joining D&M, Robinson worked for multiple geophysical companies (Denver Geophysical, CGG, RC Squared, Veritas, EP Tech, and Prism Seismic), as well as oil and gas companies (Mobile, Elf Aquitaine, Eastern American Energy, and Saudi Aramco). He has co-authored 21 technical papers, holds 2 U.S. patents for seismic applications, and was awarded a Certificate of Merit by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

Robinson graduated from Stanford University in 1978 with a bachelor’s degree in geology, and obtained a master’s degree in geophysics from the University of Houston in 1992. He is a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers, the Society of Petroleum Engineers, the Dallas Geophysical Society, the Dallas Geological Society, the Denver Geophysical Society, and the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists.

Major Projects
Robinson has been involved in studies covering a diverse range of stratigraphic and structural settings, including foreland basins, forearc basins, rift basins, cratonic basins, passive margins, transform margins, convergent margins, thrust tectonics, wrench tectonics, extensional tectonics (normal and listric faulting), subsalt plays, pinnacle reefs, carbonate platforms, hydrothermal dolomites, non-marine sands, deltaic sands, shelf sands, turbidite sands, fractured volcanics, fractured shales, and fractured basement, ranging in age from Precambrian to Pleistocene.

He is proficient with Kingdom, Divestco, Petrel, Landmark, and Geoquest geophysical interpretation software, and has extensive experience with Hampson Russell, RokDoc, and Jason software for seismic inversion and AVO analysis. He also has experience in building geologic models in Petrel and RC Squared software. He also has used various software packages to perform 1–D and 2–D geophysical modeling, fluid substitution modeling, and log editing.
