Did you know the MapStand platform includes an online community to help you track your experiences, promote products and find opportunities?

At MapStand we believe the biggest asset in the oil and gas industry is not the data that we work on, but the people. You. As the industry moves into a new era it is the knowledge and experience held by every one of us that will make the difference.

So, how are we going to understand and leverage our collective knowledge and experience? Well, for a start you can sign up to MapStand for free, build an interactive profile of the places you have worked or studied and gain access to our growing community.

Why create a MapStand profile?

Creating a MapStand Community profile opens up opportunities for all kinds of different users who want to share their knowledge, experience or current projects. Start a profile today and you can:

  • Track your skills and competencies
  • Share knowledge and experience
  • Generate ideas
  • Expand your network and discover new opportunities


Keeping track of all the research from your university days can be a challenge. By starting a Student profile you'll never lose access to the essential knowledge you've gained; sections you have interpreted, reports and thesis projects. And they won't end up gathering dust in old notebooks in the loft (like mine did!)

Student Community member Yohanes Nuwara from Indonesia is looking to the future. His recent project on characterization of carbonate reef reservoirs using seismic inversion and seismic attribute techniques on the Gundih Field is the site of a potential CO2 capture and storage project - the first in Indonesia.
