Our mission: helping our clients improve production and economic performance and make better risk-informed decision by supporting them in integrating geostatistics in their business process.
Who are we?
Founded in 1986, Geovariances develops and provides premium geostatistics software solutions and services for mining and energy companies to assess resources with greater accuracy and confidence, environmental consultancies to design more effective remediation and decommissioning, or geotechnical engineering consultancies to improve their knowledge of the subsurface to manage risks better and make effective decisions. We help our clients build robust natural resource and environmental models by giving them easy access to a complete set of powerful and intuitive statistical and geostatistical tools.
In 2022, Geovariances was acquired by the Canadian Vela Industries Group, owner of Datamine, acQuire, Minemax, Centric, and Snowden-Optiro, among other software providers.
WHY CHOOSE GEOVARIANCES ?
AN UNEQUALED KNOW-HOW
Geovariances has been the leader in applied geostatistics for more than 35 years. We guarantee our clients exceptional reliability and scientific rigor of our solutions thanks to an exclusive technical partnership with the Geostatistics Group from Mines Paris-PSL, the birthplace of geostatistics. Our solutions combine the best algorithms in the market with decades of experience to address our clients’ issues related to mapping, naturalresource estimation, and uncertainty and risk analysis.
We give you an accurate solution, whatever your field of application, mineral, gas, or oil exploration, nuclear decommissioning, contaminated site characterization, geotechnics, or other sectors that manipulate spatial data.
If you need expertise in geostatistics or help with a study, a team of geostatisticians, statisticians, geologists, mining engineers, and environmental engineers will help you to identify the best solution for your project and put it in place for you.
If you wish to improve your skills in geostatistics and become more autonomous using our software or do a refresher course, if you prefer a face to face training or live online training, you will find a course that corresponds to your needs and budget.
Because problems evolve and we are presented with new challenges daily, we have implemented some R&D programs directly linked to your operational needs. We also facilitate access to our software with universities.
The Centre de Géosciences is a research organization which deals specifically with earth sciences and the environment. It covers a wealth of disciplines, including geology, geotechnics, geophysics, geostatistics, hydrogeology, geochemy and geomechanics. The geostatistics research group aims at developping geostatistical methods in many domains of application, mainly in geosciences. The Centre de Géostatistique, now integrated in the Centre de Géosciences has been founded by Professor G.Matheron, the father of geostatistics.
An exclusive partnership has been signed between the Centre de Géosciences and Geovariances, ensuring the long-term development of Isatis and that the product remains at the cutting edge of technology.
Datamine is a world leading provider of mining software technology and services that are required to plan, manage and optimise mining operations. A collaboration agreement between Datamine and Geovariances has been signed in 2014 giving Datamine exclusive access to Geovariances’ geostatistical libraries for the global mining sector.
CEA is the French Atomic Energy Commission (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique). It is a French government-funded technological research organisation. A prominent player in the European Research Area, the CEA is active in three main fields : energy, information and health technologies, and defense and national security. In 2008, CEA and Geovariances have joined their respective expertises in a research program related to radiological contamination sampling strategy and in the development of Kartotrak, a GIS platform for realtime characterization of radiological contaminations.
Landmark offers integrated software and technology services for the upstream oil and gas industry, including reservoir management and production optimization.
An exclusive technology partnership has been signed between Landmark/Halliburton and Geovariances in 2007 for the development of geostatistical libraries to be exclusively integrated in Landmark software products.
