TEAM BIOS

Andy Horbury
Andy Horbury: Director and carbonate sedimentologist

Andy’s interests are mainly focused on the carbonate depositional systems of Arabia and Mexico. He has first-authored or co-authored many key publications on both these areas and has been primarily responsible for the generation of the Cambridge Carbonates map set, over 400 detailed systems-tract level palaeogeographies of the Arabian Plate.

Pete Gutteridge
Pete Gutteridge: Director and carbonate sedimentologist

Pete is a carbonate sedimentologist with 39 years of global experience. He is an expert in the more unusual carbonates such as karst, breccias, pre-salt and carbonate-evaporite systems, often developing new concepts that help clients to make sense of these systems. He plays a key role in putting together multi-disciplinary teams to deliver projects that solve clients’ problems.

Jo Garland
Jo Garland: Director and carbonate sedimentologist

Jo is a carbonate specialist with 24 years of industry and consulting experience. Jo revels in the challenges of working complex carbonate systems, with expertise including Palaeozoic carbonates and evaporites (with recent focus on the Zechstein), Tethyan carbonates of the Middle East and North Africa, Mesozoic reservoirs of Mexico, and seismic classification of carbonates. Jo’s passions range widely from working on a regional scale creating and refining palaeogeography maps, to complex reservoir characterisation and evaluation of reservoir quality in carbonates, in both petroleum and geothermal settings. She aims to demystify carbonates, presenting models and concepts to clients in a clear and concise way.

Benoit Vincent
Benoit Vincent: Associate Director and carbonate sedimentologist

Benoit is an expert in carbonate sedimentology, diagenesis, and geochemistry, with 21 years of international experience within natural resources. This includes classical reservoir characterisation studies involving all aspects of carbonates, as well development and management of projects dealing with CCS, geological repository, hydrogeology, and mining. He also regularly delivers courses on carbonates and runs field trips on carbonate reservoir analogues, endeavouring to maintain a high level of scientific activity through publications and reviewing.
