Our Staff

Exploro employees are highly skilled with over 50% having PhDs in geology and geophysics (all others at MSc-level).  Expertise spans the full geoscience spectrum.

Exploro’s team has experience and profound knowledge of the petroleum plays on the NCS and UKCS, and we have been involved in all bid rounds in Norway for the last 20 years. This has resulted in a strong track record of increasing assets, with more than 100 license awards for our clients.

Global Experience

Exploro has run and contributed to projects around the world, so we are used to different geological settings and cultures.

The Exploro staff is international, has a diverse background, education and vast international E&P experience. Each Exploro employee brings their own uniqueness that adds to the collective experience.

Exploro is keen to develop individual’s competences and to create a good company atmosphere. We offer a good working environment with challenging assignments and we hold a yearly geologic excursion.
