Co-Founder & Manager, Dynamic Measurement LLC


Roice Nelson, Jr is a recognized authority in the field of petroleum geoscience with over 40 years of experience in the industry. Roice is the initial founder of several companies including Dynamic Resources Corporation, Landmark Graphics Corporation, Continuum Resources Interational Corporation, Walden 3-D Inc, and Dynamic Oil & Gas Corporation. Through the conception of these companies, he has made great contributions that has changed the landscape of geological exploration.

Among these businesses, Landmark Graphics earned the greatest sucess story. In his time in Landmark, Roice has helped developed the first 3D seismic data interpretation software. Since then, it has changed the way every oil company in the world looks for oil and gas, which made a major impact on petroleum usage and availability. Roice has also created a university program which placed advanced interactive interpretation systems in many universities worldwide to support research and teaching. At present, Landmark Graphics is now under Halliburton.

In 1999, Roice was presented by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) with a Cecil Green Enterprise Award to recognize his contribution in the field of petroleum exploration.
