Geology Field Trips


Catalonia GeoResearch

CGR is a private organisation formed by both, Industry and Academy members, passionate for geology and training.


Some of them have been running field trips for the Energy sector since more than 30 years, and are actively researching in the Pyrenees.


Our field trips take place along the South-Central Pyrenees, a geological first-class lab, and start and end in Barcelona.


Health, Safety and Environment are our top priorities. Catalan Culture and Gastronomy compliment intense days of field work.


  • Geologist, based in Andorra
  • Specialises in the Palaeozoic basement


Still remember so fondly my two trips there with you Jon and Lluís. Any geoscientists interested in structure-related fracturing should book one of your field trips.

The gully prospect (Deltaic Sandstones field trip) proved extremely successful and was the biggest gas discovery for OMV in Austria for the last 15 years.

I do remember that field trip as probably the best I ever had in my career. Beside geology and your leadership, food and scenery were absolutely outstanding. I will circulate your flyer and keep on file for any future training.
