EAGE's Schlumberger Award 2005 goes to

Prof. Dr. Horst Rüter

President of HarbourDom

 

Prof. Horst Rüter is one of the major shareholders of HarbourDom. He serves as President of HarbourDom GmbH, Köln, Germany and also as Executive Advisor to KJT Enterprises Inc., Houston, TX, USA and as Executive Team Member of KMS Technologies, Houston, TX, USA. For 32 years as head of the Geophysics Department of DMT he nurtured the growth of the organization from a research group of the German coal mining to Germany’s most important private geophysical contractor. During that time he was responsible for more than hundred research projects for international public and commercial agencies, and for the Mining and Oil/gas- industry. He contributed significantly to the development of 3D-seismic methods from 1975 onward. He holds patents on seismic instrumentation and on specific logging instruments. His emphasis has been to integrate geophysical techniques into mining and borehole applications.

 

Horst holds a Ph.D. from the Ruhr-University in Bochum, where he is now a part time professor. He is member of many professional societies and on several editorial boards and professional steering groups. Presently, he serves as Board Member of the German Geophysical Society (DGG), as Vice- President of the Geothermal Society (GTV) and as Board Member of the Geouniun/Alfred Wegener Stiftung. Horst has widely published and wrote a textbook in in-seam seismics. He received in 2001 the Special Commendation award of the SEG and in 2005 the Schlumberger Award of the EAGE for taking geophysics beyond its boundaries.

 

Horst’s present interests are passive seismic monitoring, innovative logging tool developments and market introduction of geothermal energy. He presently scientifically coordinates the Sino-German Coal Fire Research Initiative. He is known for integrating various geo-scientific disciplines for numerous applications as demonstrated in several international multi-disciplinary projects.
