Dr. Amos Nur Joins Ingrain as Chief Technology Officer
Houston, TX (March 3, 2008) --  Dr. Amos Nur has resigned as director of Stanford University’s Rock Physics and Borehole Geophysics Project and accepted a position as chief technology officer at Ingrain, a Houston-based company he co-founded in 2007.
 
“Dr. Nur is world renowned for his innovations in rock physics,” said Henrique Tono, co-founder and CEO of Ingrain. “His research already allows us to address the historically difficult process of measuring the physical properties of reservoirs with reliable accuracy. As the leader of our notable technical and scientific teams, he will continue developing our technology and preparing it for commercial availability this spring.”
 
According to Gary Jones, Ingrain chairman, “Dr. Nur was instrumental in creating the technology behind Ingrain’s measurement methods. His expanded role with the company demonstrates its rapid momentum and tremendous progress introducing what we believe will be a breakthrough in how the oil and gas industry measures physical fluid flow in reservoir rocks.”
 
Dr. Nur’s patented methodologies allow Ingrain to digitally analyze reservoir rocks and drill cutting fragments after they have been scanned with state-of-the-art imaging technology. The process delivers extremely comprehensive reservoir-rock property measurements.
