Dedicated local team to support expansion of leading subsurface software solutions for mining, energy, infrastructure, and the environment

ALMATY, KAZAKHSTAN, December 19, 2023 – Seequent, The Bentley Subsurface Company, today announced the establishment of a regional hub in Kazakhstan, expanding its presence in Central Asia. Staffed by a dedicated local team, the strategic move demonstrates Seequent’s commitment to providing cutting-edge subsurface software solutions to the rapidly growing local market and wider Central Asia region.

Seequent shared the news last week at an event in Almaty, which brought together partners, stakeholders, and leading industry representatives. Seequent has supported the Central Asian business community since 2011, and major companies in the regions are already using Seequent’s earth-modelling, analysis, data management, and collaboration software. These applications help users understand the underground in the mining, energy, civil infrastructure, and environment industries.

Colin Hay, Executive Vice President, EMEA with Seequent, said, “Seequent’s expansion into Central Asia marks a significant milestone in our global strategy. Kazakhstan, situated in the heart of Central Asia, serves as an ideal hub for the region. With a robust economy, rich metal reserves, advantageous location, and a focus on attracting foreign investment, Kazakhstan stands out as a key market for Seequent’s solutions.”

Hay added, “We are seeing a growing demand for our solutions that support the evolving needs of industries in this market seeking digital innovation to drive efficiency and value in their operations. We will continue to hire locally as our Central Asia operations expand.”

Seequent offers software solutions for geoprofessionals including geologists, geophysicists, geochemists, geotechnical and geomechanical engineers, hydrogeologists, ecologists, as well as builders, designers of structures, quarries, and underground mine workers. Products include the leading implicit geological 3D modelling solution Leapfrog and Oasis montaj, the industry standard for working with geophysical data.
“Seequent’s products help to make the work of these professionals easier and more efficient and unify collaboration with colleagues around the world,” Hay said.
